Over dentures are an option when replacing a full set of upper or lower teeth. They are most commonly used to replace a full set of lower teeth because of less than desirable situations that lower dentures present. Over dentures can eliminate lower denture complaints such as movement or the need to use adhesives.
Over dentures are a combination of a conventional tissue-supported removable denture and implant borne retentive attachments. This distinct advantage allows for retention between the denture and your mouth, greatly improving the function of a lower denture.
