Implant-supported overdenture

The implant-supported overdenture is an innovative restoration that has forever changed the way that dentists and surgeons think about replacing teeth. Traditional dentures have limited success, as they are not secured, inconvenient, and at times, painful. Traditional dentures can make it difficult for you to eat your favorite foods, and because they tend to be unstable, you can find yourself in an embarrassing situation if your dentures slip or shift while you’re speaking.

Why Choose an implant-supported overdenture

The implant-supported overdenture has been created to deal with some of these problems, as it will work to replace the teeth that are missing with a dental bridge, and the only thing that will support it are four dental implants. Since fewer implants are required, the cost and treatment time with this restoration will both be significantly reduced. You’ll also enjoy greater bone stability, reducing the necessity for bone grafting in order to improve bone volume.

Benefits of implant-supported overdentures

If you are considering an implant-supported overdenture, it is important that you weigh the pros and cons of this system. There are several benefits associated with choosing an implant-supported overdenture for your tooth loss:

•  Cost effective. As previously noted, your replacement teeth will only require four implants per jaw. Since you will require fewer implants than with traditional implants, the cost of your treatment will be reduced
•  Faster healing and treatment time. The replacement arch and implants will be attached immediately
•  Less chance for requiring a bone graft. The way that the two implants are tilted will ensure that they are properly anchored, and this generally makes it unnecessary to also pursue bone grafting, even if bone is limited

Best of all, the implant-supported overdenture has been getting excellent reviews, and outcomes from clinical trials over the last 10 years have come back with extremely favorable results.
