An implant over denture is used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. The denture has special attachments that snaps onto attachments on the implants. Implant over dentures are often made for the lower jaw because the conventional lower dentures are more likely to have less retention and poor stability.
Implant over dentures help preserve your jaw bone by slowing or even stopping the bone resorption that is common in edentulous patients. They secure your teeth in your mouth, improve the aesthetics of your smile, improve chewing functions, improve speech and have a positive impact on your physical and psychological heath.
