Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant supported dentures / Implant supported Overdentures

Do you have a loose fitting denture?

A regular denture that rests on the gums will have a tendency to fit less firmly, rocking back and forth. A lower denture can be especially loose since it does not get any “suction” like a top denture does. But gone are the days where your only option was a traditional loose fitting denture. Implant supported dentures snap onto attachments on implants securely anchored into your jaw. This provides better stability and less mobility. In some cases, we can use your own canine teeth to support the attachments – saving you the cost of the implant. Click here to learn more about dental implants.

The implant-supported overdenture is a removable and affordable solution to those looking for the security of not having to worry about your “teeth” coming out in social situations.

An implant supported denture is a denture that is held in place with dental implants as well as your own bone.

No more worrying about your denture slipping or using an adhesive to keep it in place. Dental implants improve your quality of life. We have had multiple patients that were once hesitant about going forward with implants who tell us that they wish they had done it sooner.

While a fixed implant bridge is the best alternative, an implant overdenture still has many benefits:

  • Enables you to eat more types of foods
  • Enables you to speak more easily
  • Reduces your worry that your dentures may become loose or fall out
  • Feels more stable than traditional dentures
  • Gives you a more natural feel
  • Improves your chewing capacity vs. a traditional denture
