Partial or complete dentures are the most common forms of treatment with variations including implant-supported dentures and attachment-retained overdentures. **Implant Prosthodontics** incorporates principles from both disciplines of fixed and removable prosthodontics in conjunction with the use of bone-anchored implants.
