IMPLANT RETAINED PROSTHESIS
This is also known as an overdenture that rests on two or more platforms. It can be removed by a dentist and instead of using vacuum to stay in place it rests on clips that are in turn supported by the jaw bone. This is used in people who have all of their upper teeth missing and who also have sufficient jaw bone to hold the dental implants. They are made of denture acrylic. Though they are fixed they can be removed and cleaned by the dentist.
The component of the above denture: The fixture is a small titanium device and resembles a tiny screw. This screw is fixed on the bone by first drilling a hole in the gum and fixes the denture in the hole. These dentures rely on two implants and sometimes there could be four to six implants. Like the conventional dentures they replace your missing teeth and are attached to the implants for more safety and convenience. However they can be removed by the dentist for cleaning.
