Overdentures involve having 1,2, or 3 implants in the jaw that help hold in the denture.
- They are usually in the lower jaw (mandible) but may be used in the upper jaw in some cases.
- The Implants have a male component and the denture has a female component. This helps lock the denture into place.
- Small rubber components are then replaced every 12-24 month. They offer a customisable level of retention.
- The overdenture can be removed at night for cleaning
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
