Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. Conventional dentures are removable (removable partial denture or completedenture).
An implant-supported denture is a type ofoverdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported byimplants. An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw tosupport implants.
