Removable Implant Overdenture
Removable Implant-Retained Overdenture
An alternative to conventional dentures, is to use dental implants to stabilize a removable denture. Without implants, a conventional denture may feel secure and tight at the beginning, but it will become loose and uncomfortable over time due to bone loss. Without dental implants or natural teeth, there is no tension in the jawbone to resist bone loss.
Implants are give complete denture better function and stability.
What Patients Say
Long time denture wearers have generally accepted life with dentures but very few people love them. Over time, the bone absorbs the forces of biting and shrinks away. Dentures get loose and denture paste is needed. The introduction of implant-supported dentures changes everything for denture wearers!
Bone is preserved in two ways. First of all, the implants may be installed into the socket right away, so the natural resorption of the bone can be prevented. The incorporation of several implants also spreads the load evenly instead of letting it all fall on the bone. That way, much of the bone’s health is preserved. Patients are spared the embarrassment caused by loose complete dentures that get loose while you’re eating, talking or especially when you’re laughing! Implant-supported dentures are very stable and comfortable.
Why choose an implant-supported denture?
Implant-supported dentures are a perfect option for people who want teeth that is less expensive and just as reliable as a fixed bridge. Dr. Chao uses specialized attachments and the same (and oftentimes higher) level of sophistication in designing her own bars using CAD-CAM technology to fabricate her removable implant dentures. Here is an example of one of our dentures:
