What are implant over dentures?
Normal dentures are designed to fit and ‘suction’ against the gums and ridge of your mouth. The difference that implant over dentures offer is that an implant fixture (or screw) is surgically placed into your jaw that is then connected to the denture.
provides a level of stability that a normal denture is unable to provide, but
it also provides the convenience of replacing your entire dentition with one
easily removable prosthesis!
The big difference that implant over dentures provide is that your denture feels and moves like a part of your mouth. This means that it will feel much more natural whilst eating and talking with your implant over-denture.
