Implants – Implant retained OverDentures Have a smile that lasts a lifetime

Implant retained Over-Dentures

An implant-retained overdenture is a removable dental prosthesis supported by the residual oral tissues and retained by dental implants. This concept has been successfully used for over 30 years. Implant-retained overdentures demonstrate improved retention and stability when compared to conventional dentures.

HOW DO IMPLANT-RETAINED OVERDENTURES WORK?

There are a few different types of implant-retained overdentures, but they all have the same basic structure. At a glance, the overdenture looks like a traditional denture; it has a gum-colored base and a full arch of artificial teeth. However, when you look at the bottom side of the overdenture, you will find that it has small metal attachments there. The attachments allow the overdenture to “snap” onto and off of dental implants that have been placed throughout the jawbone at strategic locations. Thus, an implant-retained overdenture is much more secure than its traditional counterpart.

BENEFITS OF COMBINING DENTURES & DENTAL IMPLANTS

You can expect your implant-retained overdentures to provide you with some significant benefits:
❖ Because the overdenture is removable, it will be easy for you to maintain a clean mouth. Not only can you keep the denture itself clean, but you can also keep the area around your implants free of harmful plaque and bacteria.
❖ An implant overdenture retains its fit much longer than a traditional denture.
❖ Dental implants provide remarkably strong chewing power. You will not have to worry about your overdenture destabilizing, even when you are eating crunchy or chewy foods.
