Implant Retained Removable Restorations
An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants. It has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.
You should remove an implant-supported denture daily to clean the denture and gum area. Just as with regular dentures, you should not sleep with the implant-supported dentures at night. Some people prefer to have fixed (permanent) crown and bridgework in their mouths that can't be removed. Dr. Nguyen will consider your particular needs and preferences when suggesting fixed or removable options.
