Implant overdenture is an excellent treatment for people who wear dentures. This treatment uses overdenture attachments directly attached to dental implants to achieve retention. Individuals who receive implant overdentures feel much better than those who wear traditional full dentures regarding mouth function and life quality.
Our dentist at Affordable Implant Choice Center recommends the best overdenture implant treatment if a full denture or a permanent implant denture is not sufficient to meet your needs.
An overdenture implant is a full and removable partial denture that uses one or more dental implants for support. These are also called overlay and superimposed prostheses because they cover and partially support implants. An overdenture attachment is secured in place using precise dental attachments.
Whether a patient is entirely edentulous or wearing traditional dentures, implant overdenture treatments are one of the best treatment options. They provide prosthesis stability and retention, stop future bone loss, enhance the patients’ cosmetic and functional needs, and improve quality of life. As a dental treatment, implant overdenture is better than traditional full dentures in terms of biting force, chewing efficiency, and force discrimination.
These can be referred to as an implant partial overdenture. Patients may require one way or both depending on the health of your teeth.
Patients who have implant overdentures can experience the following practical and cosmetic advantages:
Denture adhesives are no longer required to keep implant overdentures in place. The implants hold the dentures in place.
As the implants mimic the tooth’s original root and encourage bone preservation, the area across the missing teeth is maintained in good condition. Hence, bone loss is significantly decreased.
Implant overdentures don’t fully cover the mouth roof when implants are used to secure the denture. That means you can freely recognize the texture, warmth, and flavors of the foods you eat.
Overdentures secured with implants are made to last. Patients can eat and speak without being concerned that their dentures will slip or move in their mouths.
Besides these benefits, implant overdentures restore chewing power equivalent to natural teeth. Wearing implant overdentures makes the acts of eating and chewing more comfortable than conventional dentures since implants support them.
