While traditional dentures have tremendously improved the lives of many tooth loss patients, denture wearers are often frustrated with keeping their synthetic teeth securely in place – particularly in the lower jaw. As a result, you might be less inclined to wear them, thereby returning to the start of your restoration journey.
When you are replacing your missing teeth, you want the replacement to be complete in every way, and we understand that. That is why you can count on the Carlsbad Village Dentistry team to provide you with the revolutionary overdentures at Carlsbad, CA.
What are Overdentures
Overdenture are removable dentures that fit over a small number of remaining natural teeth or strategically placed dental implants. Beneath the traditional structure of synthetic teeth and gum tissue, overdentures feature a specialized attachment that latches onto the abutments above the implants.
The unique structure keeps the overdenture securely in place, yet allows you to remove it for cleaning or during sleep. Unlike traditional denture adhesives, this also increases the stability of the overdenture, thereby decreasing or even eliminating uncomfortable movement during meals or speech. This, in turn, reduces the risk of mouth sores and embarrassing expulsion of the denture.
There are numerous other benefits to overdentures, including but not limited to:
- Improved chewing ability and digestion
- Improved speech and confidence
- Stimulated jawbone decreasing bone loss
- No perpetual purchases of denture adhesives
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Existing denture may be used – varies from case to case
Stabalize Your Smile
Overdenture candidacy is similar to the candidacy for dental implants. If your health condition allows you to undergo a tooth extraction, it should allow your mouth to accept an overdenture. Patients who are dissatisfied with the fit of their dentures are welcome to return to our office for the stabilization treatment, where we have the tools and advanced technology to help restore your faith in tooth restoration.
