What to expect
During your procedure for over dentures, implants are secured in the jaw. During the healing phase – usually between three and six months – your denture is modified to allow it to sit correctly over the implants.
Once healed, abutments or posts are are connected to the implants. Your denture is modified so it fixes to these posts with ease. The denture is removable, making it easy for cleaning.
