Implant Overdentures are also called “Snap-On Dentures” because the mechanism to
connect the denture to the implants is a male-female, snap assembly. This “Snap
Assembly” provides stability (prevents movement front to back and side to side) and
retention (prevents the denture from moving away from the tissues).
The implant overdenture is an affordable and effective option for restoring the edentulous arch, providing stability and function that are far superior to those offered by the traditional complete denture. This treatment option provides an economical means of enjoying the life-changing benefits of implant therapy, including improved bite force, chewing capability, comfort and phonetics.
Indeed, patients who receive implant overdentures report significantly higher satisfaction and quality of life than wearers of traditional denture.
