An overdenture is a particular type of removable denture that has retentive components placed inside the denture, which are used to attach to either implants or teeth with attachments placed on them. These overdenture attachments give the denture additional retention and stability to hold in place.
If maintained properly, dentures or partial dentures may last years! It's important to remember, though, that the mouth can change over time and can affect the fit of the dentures. All removable dental appliances or devices are fragile devices and can easily break if not handled properly. They should be kept clean and handled carefully to avoid damage.
