How Do Implant Supported-Dentures Work?
We surgically insert posts (implants) into the jawbone, where it takes several months for the bone to grow around the implant. Once this occurs, our specialist will add an abutment to the end of the implant and, if possible, we modify your existing denture with attachments that snap onto the abutment. You will be able to snap the implants off at night to clean under the denture and snap them back in each morning. Your overdenture (the denture) will not slip once it is snapped on.
