Implant Supported Dentures are dentures that snap onto implants. A special retentive part gets screwed into the implant, and at the same time the denture gets a complementary attachment imbedded into it, and when the two come into contact, they snap in. It’s like snaps on shirts – when you press them together, they snap in and stay in place; when you pull them apart, they come apart.

This is a great solution that is budget friendly, because often times patients are able to keep using their current denture (it gets retro-fitted/relined); people are able to use their dentures rather than paying for a new set. The drawback is that the thickness of the acrylic cannot be reduced, otherwise it has a high chance of breaking, and even while keeping the thickness of the acrylic, sometimes the denture can break because of the need to drill out indentations in the denture in order to imbed the snap attachments. If the denture breaks, it may be possible to reinforce it with a metal mesh, or make a new one.


COAR stands for Complete Oral Arch Rehabilitation. It is a dental procedure that aims to help in restoring smiles through dental implants. It uses four to six implant posts to support full and upper dentures. It is a very recommendable procedure for patients who have a more delicate health condition.
Provided that they are given proper care and maintenance, your implant-supported dentures can last between 10-20 years.
The COAR Implant Process has a unique way of positioning implants without resorting to invasive procedures. It utilizes four-to-six implant posts
Oral surgeons have the necessary skills and training to perform the procedure effectively. They have gone through additional training in order to specialize in oral and maxillofacial surgery.  General dentists can also place implants, if they posses the skills and the knowledge to do so.
