An entire arch of missing teeth cannot be effectively – or affordably – replaced using bridges or dental implants alone. Therefore, many patients in the Phoenix, AZ area consider the benefits of overdentures.
What are overdentures?
Overdentures are made to fit over dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone to function as natural tooth roots. These are fabricated to fit with an overdenture. Instead of using a traditional full denture with dental adhesives or natural suction to eat and speak, overdentures utilize the implants for stability. The implants provide a solid foundation for the denture, ensuring patients don’t have to worry about their denture falling out.
What are the benefits of overdentures?
Overdentures with dental implants have many advantages over other tooth replacement options. Overdentures:
- Are affordable
- Provide a long-term solution
- Are natural-looking
- Are easy to clean and care for
- Are stable and strong
- Allow patients to enjoy their favorite foods
- Eliminate the worry of dentures slipping or falling out
Patients interested in overdentures may be worried that they are not proper candidates for treatment. The best candidate for overdentures is a patient with sufficient bone in the jaw for the insertion of the dental implants. The implants require a sturdy, strong foundation for support and durability.
