Ball attachments - After fitting the ball attachments to the denture implants, the dentist will place the denture on them to measure and mark the spots where the female connectors will be placed. The dentist will then make the denture and permanently connect the female connectors to it.
He will then make the final adjustments needed to get a firm and stable connection between the ball attachment and the female connectors on the denture. Once finished, the patient can leave the dentist's office with his new, safely secured, dental implant mounted dentures.
He will then make the clips that will fit on the denture and make the final adjustments needed to get a firm and stable connection between the bars and the clip connectors on the denture.
The final out come of this whole big process is a new beautiful confident smile!
