Denture Anchors

Definition : Dental devices designed to support (i.e., anchor) a removable denture in the oral cavity. These anchors are usually fixed to a natural support such as a tooth (e.g., extracoronal anchor) or the gingiva acting as a retaining component; the anchors may be also fixed to dental implants (e.g., ball-and-bar anchors). Denture anchors usually include locking capabilities (e.g., nuts, soldering caps, castable threads); they are intended to support a variety of (either rigid or resilient) dentures and overdentures with different characteristics, provided that the denture-locking component matches the anchor design. Dedicated denture anchors may be used as the fixed component of a two-component dental attachment for dentures.
