Implant Supported Fixed Dentures
Overdentures are held securely to increase speaking and chewing ability. They attach a customized denture to individual implants or a row of implants, securing the denture in place. They look completely natural, are long-lasting and are quite durable.
The supporting implants are normally placed toward the front of the mouth, where the bone is denser, or wherever the least amount of bone loss has occurred.
After the implants are securely anchored in the bone, the abutments, which support the denture, are affixed to the implants. The full denture is attached to the abutments in the same manner as a bridge, so only your dental professional can remove it. Next, the denture is attached above the level of the gum for easy hygiene care at home.
