You need to get a full replacement of teeth but don’t like the idea of traditional dentures. Perhaps you just don’t want to have to deal with adhesives or having to remove your dentures. Overdentures may be the right choice for you!
WHAT ARE OVERDENTURES?
Like dentures, Overdentures are a full replacement of your teeth. Overdentures look like conventional dentures from the outside, but they’re actually secured in your mouth by titanium dental implants in your jawbone, which are more stable than traditional dentures.
WHAT DO OVERDENTURES DO?
Overdentures provide you with the benefits of implants and dentures at the same time. They are standard dentures that are supported by permanent implants in the jaw and typically offer a more comfortable and stable option for tooth replacement.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN GETTING OVERDENTURES
Overdentures are a great option and can restore proper chewing, allowing a better diet and improved health. This is a multi-step procedure that will require a few visits. Here is what to expect when planning your overdentures procedure.
Initial Consult and Planning: In this initial step, we’ll take x-rays and create a model of your existing teeth to determine implant position. At times, a bone or gum tissue graft will be needed to create an adequate site for your dental implants.
Placement of Implants: Dental implants are placed into the jaw bone in a relatively pain-free procedure. The bone and gums will be given time to heal before a denture is secured. Your current denture may be modified to fit over your new dental implants allowing the denture to function and the dental implants to heal.
Overdenture Attachment: Your new overdenture will “snap” onto your dental implants, for easy installation. If you are interested in a more advanced All-On-4 method, the denture will be secured in place using screws that fit into the dental implants.
