Use What Are Implant Overdentures from current overdentures page

While regular dentures rest directly on the gumline, implant dentures have the added benefit of being attached to sturdy implants, which serve as prosthetic tooth roots, embedded within the jaw. This creates a sturdier support that allows for increased bite strength and improved overall oral function.

There are a couple different types of implant dentures:

Fixed/Permanent Implant Dentures

As their name implies, these are permanently attached to the implants that support them. They are only removed during dental appointments. It usually takes 4 – 6 prosthetic tooth roots to anchor this type of denture. The All-on-4 treatment is an example of a fixed implant denture.

Removable Implant Dentures

Removable implant dentures, sometimes called overdentures, are easy for patients to remove without professional assistance.

There are two main types of implant overdentures:

Overdentures often require fewer dental implants than fixed implant dentures and may come at a lower price point.
