A precision attachment denture is a denture which locks into your own teeth. This ‘locking’ effect holds the denture in place very securely giving you the confidence to socialize normally, and smile self-consciously.
The attachment itself is made up of two components. The ‘male’ part is glued/cemented to your tooth, and the female section is incorporated into your denture. When the denture is in place the female and the male aspects lock together to yield a very stable prosthesis. Due to the type of attachments we use the amount of retention can be adjusted to suit your requirements.
As long as the attachments and teeth are cared for you should experience very few problems. Over the years the denture may need to be touched up and the attachments may need to be reattached.
Yes, you need to have at least two strong, healthy teeth and healthy gums.
