Over Dentures

Denture is a conventional method of restoring patients who have lost all their maxillary or mandibular teeth. Although this treatment may enhance esthetics and offers some improvement in function, it is inadequate for many patients. Chewing efficiency is drastically reduced. Plastic on the palate can be invasive, diminish the ability to taste food, and trigger a gagging sensation. Lower dentures are often uncomfortable and loose-fitting, and in many cases move freely about the mouth.

Fortunately, dental implants can be predictably placed to support an overdenture, providing retention, added stability and an affordable alternative to conventional dentures. Compared to traditional complete dentures, implant-retained prostheses excel in producing the bite force needed for effective chewing. In addition to improved speech and dental function, implant overdentures have been shown to dramatically increase social confidence, comfort and emotional well-being. This prosthetic stability afforded by implant overdentures elicits a positive psychological response and an improved quality of life.

Over Dentures Treatment

Following tooth loss, the bone regresses both horizontally and vertically. As these bone changes occur overtime , prosthetic support and stability decreases. Further, as bone resorption worsens, support for the mouth and face is compromised . The effect this can have on facial esthetics and self-esteem is difficult to overstate. By providing the edentulous ridge with continued stimulation, dental implants mitigate the bone loss that occurs in the absence of teeth.
