A removable prosthesis (overdenture) attaches to a bar or ball in socket attachments, whereas a fixed one is permanent and removable only by the dentist.
A patient comes to us with dentures and wants implants. Treatment planning is performed, molds are made, and if additional bone or gum is needed, those procedures are planned for.
Once the implants are placed and allowed to heal, a removable full denture can be connected to either a ball or bar attachment. The implants help keep the denture in place and provide better function and comfort.
