OVERDENTURES SUPPORTED BY IMPLANTS In cases in which a patient cannot tolerate wearing traditional dentures, or bone loss prohibits traditional denture wear, a removable overdenture supported by implant anchors may offer the best solution. This prosthetic treatment begins with the implantation of several titanium anchors in the upper or lower dental arch or both. After five to six implants are anchored into the bone of the upper arch, and/or four or five are inserted into the lower arch, each group of implants is connected by a stabilizing bar. At the appropriate time, a customfabricated overdenture is placed over the bar by means of a silicone gasket, which comfortably holds the denture in place as an interface with the implants.
