Overdentures

Overdentures represent a revolutionary step forward in dental restoration technology for individuals who have lost a majority or all of their teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, Overdentures are designed to fit snugly over any remaining teeth or specially placed dental implants, providing a secure, natural feel while significantly enhancing oral function and appearance.

How are Overdentures Installed?

Overdentures’ installation involves a multi-step process, usually over several visits:

Initial Consultation: We begin with a comprehensive evaluation, including clinical examination, X-rays, intra-oral scans, and teeth impressions. Based on this, we create a detailed treatment plan customized to your needs.

First Visit – Implant Placement: If you lack sufficient natural teeth for support, your dentist may recommend dental implants. These small, screw-like devices are surgically inserted into the jawbone to act as sturdy anchors for the Overdentures.

Healing Period: A healing period of a few months is required for the implants to osseointegrate, or fuse, with the jawbone. During this time, a temporary denture may be provided for aesthetic and functional purposes.

Second Visit – Impressions and Fitting: After healing, impressions of your mouth are taken to custom-craft your Overdentures. The prosthetic is designed to match the color, size, and shape of your natural teeth for a realistic look and feel.

Final Visit – Overdenture Placement: Once your Overdentures are ready, your dentist will secure them onto the supporting teeth or implants. They’ll ensure the fit is perfect and make any necessary adjustments for optimal comfort and function.
