Our skilled dentist and compassionate team understand the significance of a confident smile. We take pride in offering top-quality overdentures, also known as implant-supported dentures to help you regain both the functionality and aesthetics of your smile, enabling you to embrace life with renewed confidence. Overdentures are a versatile prosthetic solution designed to provide stability and comfort by attaching to dental implants, offering an effective way to restore missing teeth.
When Are Overdentures Needed?
You might consider overdentures in the following situations:
- Implant Support: Overdentures are an excellent choice if you have dental implants, as they can securely attach to the implants, enhancing stability.
- Enhanced Comfort: Overdentures can alleviate discomfort often associated with traditional dentures, providing a snug and secure fit.
- Preservation of Bone: By integrating with dental implants, overdentures help in preserving the underlying jawbone structure.
The Process of Getting Overdentures
During your initial consultation, our dentist will carefully assess your oral health and discuss your restoration goals. If overdentures are suitable for you, dental implant placement will be coordinated with a specialist. Once the implants have integrated with your jawbone, custom overdentures will be crafted to attach securely to the implants. Adjustments will be made to ensure a perfect fit and optimal comfort.
Benefits of Overdentures
- Enhanced Stability: Overdentures anchored to implants offer a more secure fit, preventing slippage and discomfort.
- Natural Feel: Enjoy the sensation of natural teeth due to the stable foundation of dental implants.
- Preservation of Bone Health: Integration with implants helps maintain the health and density of your jawbone.
- Improved Chewing Efficiency: Overdentures provide better chewing capability, allowing you to enjoy a broader range of foods.
Caring for Your Overdentures
To ensure the longevity and comfort of your overdentures, follow these care instructions:
- Daily Cleaning: Clean your overdentures and the implant attachments daily to prevent plaque buildup.
- Use a Soft Brush: Use a soft brush to clean the gum area and attachments gently.
- Regular Dental Visits: Maintain regular check-ups with us to monitor the health of your implants and overdentures.
- Adhere to Oral Hygiene: Continue practicing good oral hygiene by brushing your remaining natural teeth and massaging your gums.
