An overdenture is a complete denture that has a number of implants usually 2, 4, or 6 that are used to stabilized and hold a denture in place. The denture has a snapping mechanism that allows the denture to be removed, but gives the patient confidence that the denture will stay in place, help with chewing and feel more like natural teeth. This dental treatment is the next step up from traditional complete dentures to feel closer to your natural teeth.
Advantages of the Overdenture:
- Feels and functions more like natural teeth
- Increased stability and function during chewing
- Implants will help prevent bone loss
- In some cases, the palate can be removed to allow better taste and temperature perception
- More confidence
- Easy to clean
- Less costly than fixed dentures with many of the same benefits
