Dental Inserts, Intramucosal
Definition : Dental devices designed for attachment to the lateral sides (i.e., inserts) of a denture to improve denture retention. These inserts typically consist of small metal buttons (typically resembling a mushroom) that face toward the tissue and can engage the surgically created indentations at diverse angles in the patient's soft tissues bearing the denture. Intramucosal inserts are intended to provide stability and holding power to movable dentures.
