Implant Supported Overdenture

Do you have missing teeth and
struggling with dentures?

Implant-supported dentures – or overdentures

An Implant Supported Overdenture is a modern restoration that has changed the way dentists think of replacing a complete set of teeth. Standard dentures can be uncomfortable, unsteady and it can make it hard to chew food preventing you from eating foods that you enjoy most. Contemporary dentistry can aid with implant-supported dentures. To replace missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by dental implants, Implant Supported Overdenture treatments have been evolved. The least implants are required and the total treatment time and cost are lower. An Implant Supported Overdenture solution assures better stability in the bone, diminishing the requirement for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume. Implant-supported Overdenture stays connected with bar and clip attachment methods or uses a variety of abutmentbased attachments. The most suitable attachment system for your personal needs is based on various factors specified earlier in the treatment. Usually, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day of surgery. The temporary teeth let you live a normal life promptly following surgery. Following a short healing period, the dentist will place the final bridge. Your quality of life is improved, and you can begin enjoying your favorite foods again.

What is the process for implant-supported dentures or overdenture?

By employing modern diagnostic imaging equipment that incorporates Cone Beam CT Scanner, the treatment is scheduled in advance. This is a special kind of scanner that creates thorough 3-D images of your jaws, as well as all your facial structures like muscles, nerves, blood vessels.

The 3-D images created during a CT scan allow our dentist to precisely place the implants for your new teeth. He will accurately determine where to place each implant to produce the best outcomes using computer simulation to digitally position the implants in the jawbone.

The implants must be positioned in an appropriate way that will aid to balance each other. The detail given by the computer simulation is utilized to make a surgical guide which is a special kind of template and which is used during dentures in a day surgery to remove error while placing the dental implants. This kind of in-depth planning is necessary because it is crucial to miss all the significant structures in your jaws while making sure your new, same-day dental implants are in exactly the right position to support new teeth that will appear great and also fully functional.

After the implants are placed, they can be restored with temporary implant crowns or a bridge. Despite having a set of temporary teeth, it’s still vital to allow time for the same-day dental implants to heal and to bond with your jawbone. At the time of this healing process the new teeth dental implants must not move, so your temporary teeth will be made to ensure that the implants are all either locked in position in the case of implant bridges. In the case of single crowns, they will be made up in such a way so they do not get in touch with your opposing teeth when you try to chew. After the implants are fully healed and integrated with your jawbone, you can return to our clinic to have your permanent new teeth prepare.

Are implant-supported overdentures suitable for you?

Treatment using implants is most appropriate when there is sufficient bone density in the underlying jaw to support them safely. If not, bone grafting surgery may be needed to solve this issue. Implant-supported Overdenture allows the length, width, alignment, and shade of the artificial teeth to be managed, so this choice is normally suggested when aesthetics are a prime concern. Implants may not be appropriate in cases of insufficient bone density, in the existence of diabetes, or where the implant would possibly contact the sinuses. An oral & maxillofacial surgeon can normally pay attention to all these problems and will usually work together with a specialist prosthodontist who will develop the denture component. Due to the complexity of this treatment, we think specialist care is the best approach to make sure the quality of your implant treatment is not compromised. However, this approach does raise expense, so implant-supported dentures may not be suitable for patients who are price sensitive.
