What is an Implant Overdenture?

Losing all your teeth can be devastating and such can negatively impact on your confidence, comfort, and general wellbeing. On the occasion that you lose your teeth, there are some options you can choose to restore a few basic functionalities of your teeth. One such option is affixing dentures. Dentures are teeth anchors used to offer a patient with a little functionality and aesthetics of teeth. However, using dentures alone can be a bit disadvantageous.  Dentures can be a useful tooth replacement option. However, many who use this option are often faced with problems of securing the dentures especially when the dentures are on the lower jaw. Imagine how embarrassing it can be for your dentures to slip out of your mouth while in the company of your friends. Or, imagine the inconvenience of not being able to eat your favorite meal just because of your denture, how hurtful is that? Well, having dental dentures does not have to be that embarrassing or limiting. Some of the limitations of using dentures include reduced chewing efficiency, diminished ability to taste the food, gum invasions, gagging sensation, and sometimes they are loose-fitting therefore becoming uncomfortable. You can improve both the functionality and aesthetic value of your dentures by getting implants over dentures.

The Overdenture Concepts

Implant overdentures are removable devices that are shaped like horseshoes that are incorporated onto existing dentures to provide a more functional and comfortable support. Implant overdentures are with time becoming common especially in patients looking for more durable and comfortable solutions for their dentures.  The implants are usually, affixed onto existing dentures thereby making the dentures comfortable, durable, more beautiful and durable.
