Implant Overdentures By Steven P. Thompson on January 21, 2020

Losing your teeth? You have options!

There are many different options when you are looking at replacing your teeth. All-on-4® implants, which are new teeth secured permanently to implants, to traditional dentures to implant overdentures, Imagecare Dental can help you find the option that is right for you and your budget.

What is an implant overdenture?

An implant overdenture is essentially a denture created to snap into four implants. The implants act as "anchors" for the overdenture. The best part about the implant overdenture is the ability to still remove the denture from your mouth when needed, and then easily snapped back into place. 

Implant overdenture vs traditional dentures

The implant overdenture is more secure than a traditional denture since it doesn't rely on suction or adhesive to keep it in place. Patients are also able to eat easily without the fear of the denture shifting since it is securely snapped into the implants. The patient can maintain a more normal diet, while traditional denture wearers must stay away from chewy or sticky foods to avoid dislodging the denture. With implant overdentures, you can also maintain them by removing the overdenture and brushing them clean. They are a comfortable, natural option if you are faced with losing your teeth.

Is an implant overdenture a good option for me?

Imagecare Dental offers free consultations for patients to learn more about options to replace their teeth. For patients that are not candidates for All-on-4® dental implants or need a more budget friendly option, the implant overdenture is a fantastic choice that improves your ability to speak and increases confidence level as compared to traditional dentures.
