Dental implants are used to securely enhance the retention, stability and support of a complete denture. People often refer to this as the “snap-on” dentures. A unique advantage of this prosthesis, as compared with an implant fixed complete denture, is that the overdentures can replace soft tissue lost by designing “pink” flanges that will provide proper lip support and seal with gum. The prosthesis is connected to the implants through attachments, such as a locator, or a bar, such as Hader or milled bars.
