Implant dentures are a type of over-denture attached to and supported by implants. They are used when a dental patient does not have teeth in his or her jaw, but does have enough jaw bone to support the implants. This type of denture stays secure by means of special attachments that snap directly onto implant attachments. The results can be life transforming.
The implant is created by means of a titanium replacement tooth root, an abutment that connects the root to the replacement tooth, and the replacement tooth that sits above the gum line.
