LOCATOR ATTACHMENTS AND OVERDENTURES

 
John Pietruszka DDS in Staten Island NY

Locator attachments are self-aligning resilient overdenture attachments.  This system is designed to provide a “snap” connection between the patient’s implants and the overdenture.

Often patients who have lost all the lower teeth have difficulty wearing a full lower denture. Lower dentures are usually a horseshoe shaped prosthetic device that allows for movement of the tongue and musculature.  Poor, worn-down ridges in the lower jaw usually do not provide adequate retention, sometimes not even a definite fit, for the lower denture.
