The denture supported by osseointegrated implants is connected to abutments by gold screws. If the denture was damaged and required repair, it could be removed by unsrewing the gold screws. If a single implant fixture failed to osseointegrate and was not able to withstand occlusal forces due to soft tissue formation, the denture could be removed to gain surgical access to the fixture site.
The denture could be maintained and supported by the remaining fixtures. At a later time, another fixture could be placed and may require fabrication of new denture. This kind of dental implant system allow retrievability which is convenient for dental implant maintenance. A lot of patients express strong desire for a fixed type denture and the fully bone anchored denture could be the treatment of choice in implant dentistry.
