IMPLANT OVERDENTURE

WHAT IS AN IMPLANT OVERDENTURE?

  • Dental implants are used to stabilize dentures and this has proven to be successful for many people. An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants and improves the quality of life for patients. An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.
  • Implant-supported dentures usually are made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there.
  • You should remove an implant-supported denture daily to clean the denture and gum area. Just as with regular dentures, you should not sleep with the implant-supported dentures at night. Some people prefer to have fixed (permanent) crown and bridgework in their mouths that can’t be removed. Your dentist will consider your particular needs and preferences when suggesting fixed or removable options.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DENTURE STABILIZATION WITH DENTAL IMPLANTS?

  • Poor fitting dentures are often held by adhesives where implant overdentures are anchored in the bone and allow patients to have better digestion due to proper chewing and allows for a better diet
  • Decreases bone loss by stimulating the bone in your jaw
  • Better ability to speak clearly
  • Increases comfort with less irritation of gum tissue
  • Ends the cost and inconvenience of denture adhesives
  • In some cases, can utilize your existing denture

AM I A CANDIDATE FOR AN IMPLANT OVERDENTURE?

The best way is to schedule an appointment for an exam and a CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) this will give our office the ability to produce three dimensional (3-D) images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways and bone in a single scan. This is a state of the art process that will assist in the treatment planning of your implant overdenture. From your initial exam and CBCT, the Purely Dental Surgery team will give you the best options to improve your overall oral health and quality of life.
