There are several attachment systems for implant-supported dentures, such as:
Ball, locator, bar-retained and screw-retained
Lower dentures supported by three implants with ball or locator attachments:
The prosthesis is retained by ball or locator attachments on the gums (in the posterior area), making the dentures more stable and improving chewing function. Sores and discomfort related to wearing a prosthesis are alleviated. The dentures are held in place with posts in the form of balls and nylon attachments, and show a bone stimulation rate of 70% and stability of 7/10.
