Overdentures

Implant therapy is prescribed for patients that have lost one, multiple or all of their teeth. Patients with multiple or all of their missing teeth have complete or partial dentures, this treatment option is called Overdentures. Overdentures are teeth replacement which retains dental implants. Overdentures are developed to help both partial and fully edentulous patients to regain quality life.

Procedures

There are different types of procedures for overdentures mostly used are :

  • Implant-Retained, Gum Supported
  • In this treatment, the overdenture rests directly on your gums and is retained by implants placed into patients upper and/or lower jaw. The overdenture, is secured to patient implants through retentive attachments incorporated into the denture. Implant-retained tissue supported dentures are currently recognized as the minimum standard of care for fully edentulous patients.

  • Bar-Retained, Implant Supported
  • In this treatment, the overdenture engages retentive attachments on the metal bar that connects to implants, which are placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The overdenture, is secured to the bar through adjustments fabricated directly into the denture.

  • Fixed, Implant Supported
  • In this treatment, the overdenture and bar are a one-piece framework using screws to implants placed into patients upper and/or lower jaw. The overdenture is only removable by a Dental Clinician and is the most natural teeth due to not having flanges and not resting on the gums.
