Implant supported dentures have offered great improvement in restorative dentistry to the way that dentures fit inside the mouth. They are considered to be an “overdenture” that is supported by anchors that have been implanted into the jaw bone. Traditional dentures rest on the gums, and people often have a difficult time getting a good fit because of how they shift and move in the mouth. Implant supported dentures are held in place because their anchors stabilize them. This stabilization also prevents the clicking noises, slipping, and discomfort that many people experience with traditional dentures. With implant supported dentures, denture wearers are also more freely able to enjoy eating a variety of foods because their dentures are securely held within the mouth.
