Overdenture

If you want to replace missing teeth, consider using an overdenture. An overdenture is a denture designed to fit over the remaining teeth or dental implants. This can provide additional support and stability, which can help to preserve the bone and gum tissue that supports the teeth.
Overdentures can be particularly helpful for those with missing teeth in the lower jaw. They can also be used in the upper jaw, although less common. The remaining teeth or dental implants are anchors for the overdenture, which can be either removable or fixed.

 

Who Needs Overdentures?

Overdentures are an excellent choice for individuals who have lost several teeth or struggle with poorly fitting dentures. They benefit those with weak bone density, as traditional implants may be challenging to insert.

If you're a senior citizen who finds it challenging to care for your dentures daily, overdentures may improve your quality of life. They can enhance your comfort level and confidence when speaking and eating.

Types of Overdentures

The two types of overdentures are implant-supported and dental bridge overdentures. Implant-supported overdentures require dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone to support them. The number of implants needed is decided according to the patient's bone density, bone quality, and the overdenture's size. The implants act as anchors, holding the overdenture securely in place.

Dental bridge overdentures are removable dental prostheses that attach to natural teeth crowned with dental bridges. The dental bridges are cemented onto the teeth and are anchors for the overdenture.

Manufacturing of Overdentures

To make overdentures, the dentist will examine you to determine whether you're a suitable patient. They'll evaluate your dental and medical history, take X-rays and teeth impressions, and assess your bone density.

A 3-D surgical guide is then created to ensure the accurate placement of the dental implants. After the implant, your dentist will take an impression of your mouth to create a custom-fit overdenture. The overdenture is fabricated in our dental laboratory and fitted to your mouth.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Overdentures

Overdentures are removable dentures that are supported by implants or remaining natural teeth. They are a prominent treatment method for patients with missing teeth, especially those not good candidates for traditional dental implants. Overdentures have their advantages and disadvantages, which we will discuss below:

Advantages of Overdentures

The following are the advantages of overdentures:

  1. Better retention and stability: Overdentures are more stable and have better retention compared to conventional dentures. The implants or remaining teeth are anchors for the overdenture, preventing it from slipping or shifting while talking or eating.
  2. Improved comfort: Overdentures are more comfortable than traditional dentures. Because implants or remaining teeth support them, they do not put pressure on the gums and bone tissue in the mouth, reducing the risk of sore spots and discomfort.
  3. Better chewing ability: Overdentures offer better chewing ability than traditional dentures, which can improve a patient's diet and overall health.

Disadvantages of Overdentures 

The disadvantages of Overdentures include:

  1. Cost: Overdentures can be more expensive than traditional dentures, requiring implants or remaining teeth to support them. The price of implants or other supporting structures can add to the overall cost of the treatment.
  2. Surgical procedure: The placement of dental implants required for overdentures involves a surgical procedure that may not be suitable for all patients. Some patients may need to be better candidates for surgery due to medical conditions or medications.

Suppose you are looking forward to replacing a missing tooth. In that case, it's integral to work with a dental professional to determine whether an overdenture is the right choice for you and to ensure the best possible outcome for your needs and preferences.
