Overdentures

A Stable, Comfortable Solution for Missing Teeth

Your smile is one of your most valuable assets, and missing teeth can have a profound impact on your self-confidence and overall well-being. Not only do missing teeth affect your appearance, but they can also lead to difficulties in eating, speaking, and maintaining optimal oral health. Overdentures offer a stable, comfortable solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile.

Why Choose Implant Overdentures Over Traditional Dentures?

What are Overdentures?

Denture Convenience with the Stability of Dental Implants

Overdentures are a type of denture that is supported and held in place by dental implants. Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums and rely on adhesives for stability, overdentures are securely attached to implants, providing a more stable and comfortable fit. 

Overdentures can be designed as either removable or fixed appliances. Removable overdentures can be taken out for cleaning and maintenance, while fixed overdentures are permanently attached to the implants and can only be removed by a dental professional.

An overdenture consists of three main components:

Dental Implants

Small, titanium posts are surgically placed into the jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth. These implants fuse with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration, creating a strong, stable foundation for the overdenture.

Attachments

Special attachments, such as ball attachments or locator attachments, are connected to the dental implants. These attachments protrude slightly above the gum line and serve as anchors for the overdenture.

Denture Base

The overdenture itself is a custom-made prosthesis that fits over the dental implants and attachments. It is designed to look and function like natural teeth, with a gum-colored base and artificial teeth that are carefully crafted to match your unique smile.

Why Choose Implant-Supported Bridges Over Other Options?

When compared to other types of dental bridges or dentures, implant-supported bridges offer several key advantages:

Improved Stability and Functionality

Because they are anchored directly into your jawbone, implant-supported bridges provide unparalleled stability, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

Preservation of Natural Teeth

Unlike traditional bridges, which require the alteration of adjacent healthy teeth for support, implant-supported bridges stand independently, preserving the integrity of your remaining natural teeth.

Durability and Longevity for Years to Come

With proper care and regular dental check-ups, your implant-supported bridge can last for many years, making it a cost-effective, long-term solution for missing teeth.

Candidates for Overdentures

Overdentures are an excellent solution for a wide range of patients seeking to replace multiple missing teeth. You may be a good candidate for overdentures if you:

Have multiple missing teeth

If you are missing several teeth in one or both jaws, overdentures can provide a stable, comfortable, and functional replacement option.

Have difficulty with traditional dentures

If you do not want or have experienced discomfort, slippage, or other issues with traditional dentures, overdentures can offer a more secure and comfortable fit.

Have sufficient jawbone density for implants

Dental implants require a certain amount of healthy jawbone for successful placement and integration. If you have experienced some bone loss, a bone grafting procedure may be necessary before implant placement.
