If your dentures are uncomfortable, loose-fitting, or make clicking sounds while you talk and eat, implant overdentures may be the solution you’re looking for!

What are Implant Overdentures?

Like traditional dentures, implant overdentures are removable appliances that include prosthetic teeth. Implants are placed within the premaxillary bone to provide a solid support for the overdenture and prevent any unwanted movement. The number of implants may vary based on the specific needs of each patient (usually between 2-4 for each overdenture) and is determined by the volume and density of available bone. The overdenture is then fitted on top of the implants like a cap.

Benefits

There are several advantages to the use of implant overdentures and patients consistently report better function, stability, and quality of life after their installation. One of the biggest improvements is the lack of movement when compared to traditional dentures. No more irksome clicks and wobbles, giving you comfort and confidence in your daily activities. They also eliminate the need for messy pastes and glues, a convenient upgrade to be sure. Overdentures are shaped like a horseshoe and allow open access to the soft palette, improving natural movement within your mouth, allowing clearer speech and heightened taste. Perhaps the most important consideration is that implants will significantly reduce the destructive bone-loss process — up to 75 percent less in the areas the implants are placed as compared to the use of dentures without implant treatment.

Who is a candidate?

Potential candidates include patients with severely compromised teeth and those who are dissatisfied with their current dentures. Generally, dentists are able to modify a patient’s existing dentures to fit the implants, providing all of the increased benefits at a much lower cost. In most cases, if a person is healthy enough to undergo a tooth extraction, then they are also a candidate for the implant overdenture treatment. Research has shown that neither increasing age nor osteoporosis is a barrier to successful healing or integration of implants.
