A denture magnet utilizes magnetic energy to increase the retention of dentures when only some of the tooth’s roots exist. A magnet and its mount are implanted in a denture and the gingiva. This is especially effective for a lower full denture, which does not have anything to hold down otherwise.
The first photograph of the upper denture magnet shows four magnets.
The second photograph shows the upper teeth of the patient after the treatment. Magnet keepers were implanted into the remaining roots.
