What are Dentures on implants?
July 27, 2012 11:33PM
Dentures on implants are when an oral surgeon places posts inside the bone and the denture is screwed to the implants. The denture is then not removable, except by a dentist. This usually done on lower dentures for patients that do not have a lot of bone and do not tolerate a lower denture well.
The denture is removable because the denture rests on the implants, which typically snap into the denture, holding the denture securely. The denture can and should be removed daily for cleaning.
