On overdenture is similar to an implant-supported denture which sits on dental implants. An overdenture can be snapped into place on those implants. New dentures may need to be created or if you already wear dentures, they might be retrofitted for the implants. Usually, they are held in place by two implants that replace your canine teeth. The use of dental implants can also strengthen your jawbone by helping it to grow and increase in mass and density.
Another option is to place the overdenture on your on existing teeth, usually your canine or eye teeth. In many cases, those teeth receive a root canal and a metal bar is placed on them or they are given an attachment to hold the overdenture in place.
Overdentures can help you to speak and eat better, and can improve conditions such as a cleft palate. Contact our team today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Daroee.
