Our dentist and team specialize in advanced restorative solutions, including the provision of overdentures, to offer our patients improved quality of life through enhanced dental care. This modern solution combines the benefits of conventional dentures with the stability of dental implants, providing a secure, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing option for those experiencing tooth loss.

Understanding Overdentures

Overdentures are a type of removable denture that is supported by and attached to dental implants. A more stable alternative to traditional dentures, overdentures clip onto attachments on the implants, which have been surgically placed in the jawbone. This design offers a snug fit, reducing the movement of the denture and enhancing the wearer’s comfort and confidence.

The Process of Getting Overdentures

We ensure a seamless and supportive experience for patients opting for overdentures, guided by the following steps:

  • Initial Consultation: Our journey begins with a thorough evaluation of your oral health to determine your suitability for overdentures.
  • Implant Placement: Strategic placement of dental implants in the jaw serves as the foundation for the overdentures, requiring a period for the implants to integrate with the bone.
  • Custom Design: While the implants are integrating, we design your overdentures to match the natural appearance of your gums and teeth, focusing on achieving optimal aesthetics and functionality.
  • Fitting and Adjustment: Once integration is complete, we fit your custom overdentures, making any necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.
  • Care and Maintenance Guidance: We provide comprehensive instructions for the care of your overdentures and schedule follow-up visits to monitor your progress and adjustment.

Benefits of Overdentures

Choosing overdentures offers several significant benefits:

  • Improved Stability and Comfort: The implant support minimizes denture slippage and irritation, enhancing comfort and ease of use.
  • Enhanced Chewing and Speech: With a secure fit, overdentures improve your ability to chew and speak compared to traditional dentures.
  • Preservation of Jawbone: The stimulation from the implants helps maintain jawbone density, supporting facial structure and oral health.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: Custom-designed to complement your facial features, overdentures restore the natural beauty of your smile.
