Implants can secure a removable denture to your jaw to make it more stable. This is called an overdenture, which is more comfortable, effective, and healthier to wear than a traditional denture. It snaps out for cleaning and requires no adhesive. Your dental professional can secure an overdenture with as few as two implants that prevent it from slipping while you eat and speak. Another advantage is while a traditional denture puts pressure on the underlying bone—resulting in its loss—an overdenture helps preserve the bone directly beneath it.
