Implant-Supported Denture

  • An implant-supported denture is a type of over-denture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants.
  • An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.
  • Implant-supported dentures usually are made for both jaws because regular dentures tend to be less stable over time ("slippery dentures").
