If I get mini implants what material does my denture need to be made of?

Q.
hi
i,m thinking of having mini implants as have a nhs partial denture that doesnt fit very well so would need to replace denture as well could you please advise what material the denture can be made of or does it need to be the hard plastic that nhs dentures are made of
thaanks in advance
A.
Hard plastic is usually acrylic and would be the first choice in most cases, Flexible acrylics would not retain the clip component within the denture. a metal subframe is used with acrylic on some occasions where the bite is particularly hard.

Is there anyway you can receive dental implants after you already have had dentures put in?,
