An implant overdenture-Snap on Denture is used to replace all the teeth using a denture that snaps in or locks in to certain connections called “locators”.
- With an implant overdenture, two or more implants may be placed in your jaw.
- In the lower jaw a minimum of two implants are used, toward the front.
- In the upper jaw, a minimum of four implants are used.
Sometimes a titanium bar can be made to connect the implants and to add stability. The bar increases the retention and stability of the teeth, but a bar isn’t always used. The denture, then connects or locks onto the implants and/or bar for stability.
