An Implant denture is a denture that rests on implants that are placed into your gum bone for extra support. While regular dentures are supported by your gums, implant over-dentures rest on implants that are placed in your jaw for extra support.
Implants are usually placed on the bottom of your mouth because that is the denture that requires the most support. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants, thus providing maximal support for the denture and not allowing it to move in your mouth. Many patients struggle with a lower denture due to excessive shrinkage of the bone. Implants are a great solution for a better quality of life and more pleasant eating.
