For this procedure typically screws are mounted in the bone structure and your new dentures are made to attach to those screws. The reason these types of dentures are so ideal is because, they never have to be removed.

Standard – standard dentures are the most typical type of dentures available. Standard dentures are commonly used with a denture paste to hold them to the roof of your mouth. These types of dentures are the most common, most affordable, and can be made to fit every individual.
