- Removable over dentures are the traditional dentures that are anchored to your mouth by fitting them directly over mini or conventional implants or over a bar that has been connected to the implants. These inplants are called removable over dentures because they fit over the implants. They are removable and must be taken out following a meal and for cleaning.
