An overdenture is a partial or complete denture that are supported by one or more remaining natural teeth or implants; these supporting teeth or implants are called “abutments”. The overdenture may be attached to the abutments by 2 means: mechanical (ball and bar attachments) and magnetic attachment. Overdentures with magnetic attachments are called “Magnetic dentures“.
