Dentures Ask The Dentist Corinne Scalzitti Question:
I need your help. I have to wear a denture that is completely off the gum.

Is a High water permanent denture completely off gum that is attached to 6 implants? Is the appliance attached to the implants with screws or adhesive of some kind?

Also is there a website describing this type of denture for a patient trying to make a decision whether to get this type of denture? ...Visitor from NY

I can't answer your questions. I would guess that the denture will be attached by screws.

There is a chance that they would use "locators", which hook into the denture with a gasket. You need to ask the person who is doing the procedure exactly what happens and understand everything before having this done.

Some sources of information would be www.zestanchors.com.

A person who is making this kind of investment should have a clear understanding of what will happen before the procedure and this needs to come from the treating dentist, not somebody who has no idea of your situation or treatment.

Corinne Scalzitti, DMD, MAGD
