Overdentures: A Great Alternative to Traditional Dentures
Have you been thinking about dentures or considering implants but are concerned about the cost? Maybe you are suffering from multiple missing teeth and need recurring dental repair. Overdentures might be the solution to your problems.
Overdentures are a cost-effective method that combines prosthetic dentures with implant technology. They give all the benefits of dentures plus the quality and ease associated with implants. In other words, an overdenture is a removable denture that is attached to dental implants by the dentist. This procedure is quickly becoming preferred by patients, as it provides a long-term, secure solution compared to traditional dentures.
Overdentures are more secure and reliable than traditional dentures. Since they are attached or placed over an implant, gone is the worry that the denture will loosen and fall out. Overdentures also help reduce long-term bone loss that can be associated with dentures. This procedure helps preserve the bone in the mouth by providing daily stimulation to the jawbone.
Overdentures also eliminate much of the worry that comes along with eating. With traditional dentures, there is always the concern that eating could cause the dentures to loosen. Because overdentures are attached to implants, that concern is gone. You are free to confidently eat the foods you love, and you no longer need to worry about biting and chewing foods.
When comparing standard dentures to overdentures, there are numerous benefits:
- Overdentures are more comfortable and attractive than traditional dentures and have more of the look and feel of natural teeth.
- There is no longer the need to rely on adhesives.
- Overdentures require simple maintenance.
- They help to regain self-confidence and improve quality of life.
- Overdentures are a reliable and cost-effective option.
