Overdenture Attachments


Overdentures offer prosthesis retention for the patient suffering from retention problems
with the typical complete denture, particularly those patients with advanced ridge resorption.
Overdentures obtain their support from two or more abutments by completely enveloping them
beneath the fitting surface. (The use of only one abutment is not recommended.) Overdentures
offer these patients greatly improved retention and stability. “The overdenture attachment can
be placed in tooth roots that have been saved, or torqued into dental implants which have been placed to receive them.
