With this option a thin titanium bar follows the curve of your jawbone which will link the implants together, attachments on the bar, denture or both fasten the denture securely in place. This treatment is the most secure removable option.
Generally there are 2 types of overdenture available, stud/ball-retained and bar-retained. Both options require 2-4 implants placed into the jaw bone.
Implants are placed by our preferred dentist, with whom we work closely. The implants are given time to fully integrate (approx 12 weeks), during this time we may adjust your current denture or construct a temporary denture. Once healing is complete we begin to create your denture, the only difference being, once you are happy with the look of your new smile, we send that off to a laboratory which specialises In titanium bars, this can take a few weeks to be made. The fitting of the denture then takes place and this offers the most secure removable option for patients.
