Studies* show that patient satisfaction increases if the denture (especially the mandibular denture) is retained with an attachment as an implant overdenture. The current standard of care for a single tooth replacement has been accomplished with an implant crown. It is quickly becoming the standard of care that a denture be secured with implants or with attachments on natural dentition so that there are no clasps showing. We are fortunate to have several well-developed and predictable attachment systems to choose from today.These include Zest’s popular Locator line, Sterngold’s ERA, and other attachments.
