A removable denture anchored by dental implants is called an overdenture and it is designed to permanently replace missing teeth for a completely toothless jaw. This type of removable restoration is retained by a bar/ locator or balls that are anchored to typically 2 or 4 dental implants.
It is mainly intended for those who seek an affordable alternative to dental implant supported, fixed full bridge restoration or if there is a medical reason that impede the placement of multiple implants. Overdentures are firmly attached to the implants, so they are strong and stable and provide a safe and comfortable alternative to traditional removable dentures. In addition, they are reduced in size for maximum comfort for your everyday life.
