An overdenture is a type of denture that is secured by precision dental attachments to either tooth roots or dental implants. An overdenture fastens a denture to the jawbone, with multiple implants or bar joints, mimicking the way natural teeth are anchored. Bar joints support the dentures better than individual implants though implants are still required to support the bars. Some of the benefits of overdentures include the prevention of bone loss (dental implants actually strengthen the surrounding bone structure), esthetic appeal, improved speech (when compared with other types of dentures), proper jaw alignment, and improved chewing efficiency.
