CAD-CAM bar over-dentures on dental implants
CAD-CAM bar over-dentures are very stable and solid with an excellent long-term prognosis. In contrast to "Locators" or "Ball-Attachment" overdentures these constructions are a great alternative to dentures. Locator or Ball attachment dentures are mostly used for geriatric patients or in some cases as a compromise. Atlantic Dental in Cornwall is one of the very few clinics to routinely offer this treatment concept.
Case Study 1
This patient could not wear a denture due to her "dry mouth syndrome". 2 implants were placed but the attempt to secure a denture with locator abutments failed. Therefore we constructed a milled bar overdenture which proved to be very successful.
Case Study 2

Case Study 3
Denture secured by Locator - and Ball Abutment Attachments on 4 implants
