Overdentures Can Improve Your Health

The most important consideration in your decision to choose and overdenture is the limited retention and stability of a traditional denture which relies on suction alone. Over time, retention only worsens due to continual bone loss (atrophy) of your dental arches from the lack of teeth, and this can have a negative impact on your overall health.

There is an excellent alternative to wearing traditional dentures. AN OVERDENTURE fits over dental implants that have been placed by your dentist. The implant provides you with excellent stability and support for your overdenture.

The significant concerns regarding function, retention, stability, mastification (chewing), and speaking can be overcome by maintaining the level of bone present in the upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible).

These issues can be successfully accomplished by having dental implants placed by your dentist.

Benefits For You
  • Having dental implants placed will preserve bone and will dramatically reduce bone resorption and deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height.
  • Overdentures will control facial contour changes that lead to premature wrinkles and aging.
  • Overdentures will allow you to chew your food better and speak more clearly. Studies have proven that overdentures contribute to improved chewing efficiency and phonetics.
  • Loose dentures that cause embarrassment will be eliminated. Messy denture creams and adhesives are no longer needed.

Unlike traditional dentures implant-supported overdentures are held in place by dental attachments which provide the retentive strength that you desire.

An attachment retained overdenture will provide maximum retention, increase in function and added health benefits. You can be assured this treatment option is your best choice.
