Overdentures are a type of dentures that fit over your remaining teeth, dental implants, prosthetic teeth, or even the roots of natural teeth. Implant-Supported overdentures attach to implants rather than resting directing on the gums.
Who are Implant-Supported Overdentures good for?
Overdentures are a great solution for people who may not have any teeth in their jaw or have only a few natural or prosthetic teeth but have enough bone in their jaw to support an implant. This is also a good option for those patients who have experienced difficulty in denture stability on their lower jaw. Even if you need to have a bone graft so that you can strengthen the area of the jawbone where the implant will be set, you can still be a candidate for implant-supported overdentures.

Implant-supported overdentures have a number of advantages over other forms of implants, and they may be the best match for you and your situation. Implant-supported overdentures give a greater degree of stability and comfort for people who need dentures, but still have remaining teeth or tooth roots. The implant process is relatively quick and the recovery time often takes less than a year, and only requires two small surgeries.
How do I care for Implant-Supported Overdentures?
Implant-supported over-dentures are also easy to care for and far more durable than other kinds of dentures. This means that you can expect to experience less denture-related stress and frustration, better and improved speech, a stronger bite, and an improvement in your life.
Implant-supported dentures are also very easy to care for, and they do not typically require much more maintenance apart from regular healthy dental health habits, however the attachments must typically be replaced once or twice a year.
