First a little personal background information.
I have been a dentist in the Tampa area of Florida since 1988. My first Palm Harbor, FL dentist office was located in the 34683 zip code. My current and hopefully permanent location is: 3490 East Lake Road, Palm Harbor, FL 34685 727-789-1333. This month I will begin the 25th year of being a Palm Harbor dentist. I have noticed that may of the terms we dentists use routinely are either misunderstood or entirely unknown to the normal dental patient.
An overdenture as fabricated in my Palm Harbor, Tampa FL dentist office is a denture that goes “over” something. In this picture a denture will go over and snap into / be secured by the two silver balls seen. These attachments (balls) are anchored in teeth, but dental implants are used in the same way to secure a denture as an overdenture.
