An over denture is either a complete or partial denture which is fixed upon two existing implants. This technique firmly sets the dentures in their respective position, which eliminates issues such as bruising and inconsistent chewing associated with loose dentures. Over dentures lock into position until they are removed, which allows patients to use them effectively.
In case a patient previously owns dentures, they can be modified to serve as over denture. They are designed for durability and continuous usage so that they may serve the patient on a long term basis and will require minimum oversight from dentists.
