Implant-supported overdentures are a successful solution for edentulous patients. Implant-placed overdentures lock the denture in place, providing patients with the peace of mind that their dentures will not slip when they speak or eat in public. An implant-supported overdenture requires that implants are placed into the jaw. The implants bond to the jawbone forming an anchor. Full bridges or dentures are created to attach to the implants, literally locking the teeth replacement into place.
