5 pros and cons of implant attachment

For many individuals who are completely or partially edentulous, implant-supported overdentures provide a life-changing choice. The stability of the restoration is improved when dentures are attached to an osseointegrated dental implant. This provides for better function and higher confidence that the dentures will stay in place while the wearer is speaking, chewing, or doing any other activity.

There are a variety of methods available for attaching the dentures to implants. Although the clinical scenario and the patient's anatomy influence the decision, the technician can make the best choice for the case at hand and design the restoration to fulfill the case's functional and cosmetic criteria by having a thorough understanding of attachments.

Magnetic Affixation

These attachments include equivalent magnets that are affixed to the denture and magnets that are attached to the implant abutment or screw-retained bar.
