Overdentures in New York City / New York
Removable Mini-Implant Supported Denture
One option to replace all teeth on an arch may involve the placement of two (or more) dental implants. Special attachments are placed over the implants, making it possible for a customized denture to be secured in place. This is a connection type known as the locator attachment. The denture may be removed by the patient for cleaning.

This is an example of how mini implants can be used to stabilize a denture, resulting in a removable implant supported denture.
- First, the dental implants are placed into the bone
- Depending on the bone quality, the female attachment (in the implant head) can attached to the denture, to allow for immediate function of your denture
- The denture is now stabilized through attachments that are inside the prosthesis
|Stabilizes denture||Must remove the prosthesis daily to clean the post/implants|

|Can restore facial structures|
|Prevent jaw bone loss|
|May use less than 5 implants to support the denture|
