What is an overdenture? An overdenture is a permanent type of denture designed to go over the teeth or Dental Implants. It is attached by specialized dental attachments that are secured in the roots or implants. Overdentures are often worn by patients who have lost all of their teeth due to tooth decay, illness, etc. Conventional Dentures can sometimes be uncomfortable and feel unnatural, while overdentures are often a good option if the patient still has teeth roots.
Benefits of Implant Overdentures
1. Saving your natural roots or having dental implants placed will preserve bone and will reduce bone resorption and deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height.
2. Implant overdentures will control facial contour changes that can make you look older.
3. Implant overdentures will allow you to chew your food better and speak more clearly.
4. Embarrassing loose dentures will be eliminated. Messy denture creams and adhesives are no longer needed with denture implants.
