Implant overdentures are indicated for patients who desire a more stable prosthesis that improves retention, function and speech. The Locator® Implant Overdenture is indicated when there are at least two implants in place, and is most common in the mandible. The Inclusive® Locator CAD/CAM Milled Bar Overdenture distributes occlusal loads more evenly across four or more implants, making it ideal for patients with a heavy bite or when the implants have been placed in softer bone. The Mini Implant Overdenture offers immediate loading and long-term stabilization for patients with medical, anatomical or financial limitations.
Inclusive® Screw-Retained Hybrid Dentures are proven replacements for removable prostheses worn by edentulous patients. A custom acrylic framework is fabricated on your master model work and then scanned. The scanned data of the framework and the individual implant platforms are transferred to a design station where the one-piece bar framework is finalized. After design, it is milled from titanium for a precision fit of less than 20 microns. Then, the titanium bar is incorporated into the acrylic processing of the denture tooth setup. This is an affordable implant solution for edentulous patients that offers excellent predictability, esthetics and function.

Sometimes referred to as implant-retained dentures, implant-supported dentures are a permanent solution that is often better for patients, who do not wish to have the inconvenience of removing dentures to eat certain foods or to clean them.
They are often chosen by patients who have difficulties with manual dexterity and may find fitting their dentures tricky. Unsurprisingly, implant-supported dentures offer the aesthetic appearance of conventional dentures, but they are secured into the patient’s jaw using implant posts that have fused to the bone. Once they are in place, many patients quickly forget that they aren’t their natural teeth!
