Implant overdentures provide support for your dentures and assist them in function, as well as help them to feel more like your own natural teeth.
What are implant overdentures?
Overdentures are replacement teeth supported by dental implants. Dental implants are surgically placed into your jawbone. Following a healing period, a full arch of teeth is secured to the implants, giving you a natural-looking smile.
Benefits of implant overdentures
- Better fit. Dentures will be stable and fit better than the removable denture option. They won’t rub on your gums, cause irritation, or slip or come out.
- Better function. Because your dentures will be more stable, your chewing efficiency will be better, causing your digestion to improve. It will also be easier to speak with dentures that are secure.
- Stimulated bone retention. When you are missing all of your teeth, your body resorbs the bone, a condition called facial collapse, causing your facial muscles to sag and make you appear older. Implants will stimulate your jawbone and prevent it this condition.
