Fabricated by our experienced lab technicians to ensure an optimal fit and beautiful esthetics, Glidewell implant overdentures offer a cost-effective means of stabilizing your patients’ dentures, improving prosthetic retention, function and speech.

  • Implant-retention stabilizes denture
  • Customized prosthetic design ensures precise fit
  • Improved functionality with lifelike esthetics
  • Predictable implant lab fees and no hidden costs

A Stable, More Functional Denture

Implant overdentures from Glidewell are recommended for patients who desire a more stable removable prosthesis that improves retention, function and speech. Locator Overdentures are delivered over at least two implants, are most common in the mandible, are supported by the soft tissue and can be removed by the patient for cleaning. This removable implant solution is recommended when the patient doesn’t have enough bone volume to support the number of implants in the correct positions needed to provide adequate anterior-posterior (A-P) spread for a fixed restoration.

Glidewell’s Locator Overdentures are fabricated through a simple, predictable clinical workflow, and are an excellent option for patients looking for a low-cost implant solution for a poorly fitting, unstable denture. The Locator Overdenture provides for improved retention via retentive caps that seat over Locator Abutments connected to the implants. For patients who desire a palateless maxillary denture, upper implant overdentures can be fabricated in the shape of a horseshoe, addressing patient issues with comfort, speech and taste.

At Glidewell, we employ a dedicated full-service team of specially trained implant technicians to restore your case with the utmost care. Our all-inclusive pricing eliminates fear of hidden costs. When you prescribe removable implant solutions from Glidewell, you will discover an easy, predictable and profitable approach to dentistry.

Our other standard overdenture options include the Locator CAD/CAM-Milled Bar Overdenture and the Mini Implant Overdenture.

Clinical Studies

Locator attachments were connected to the implants. Note how the attachments are nearly parallel along the axial plane, allowing for a passive fit of the prothesis.

The maxillary implant overdenture was created with a palateless design for improved patient comfort and taste. At the final delivery appointment, the overdenture was seated over the Locator attachments, providing the patient with enhanced prosthetic stability and function.
