Avoid Embarrassing Moments with Overdentures
Jan 23, 2019

Do you wear dentures? Is your quality of life diminished or limited because of your dentures? Do you ever wonder if there’s another option besides traditional dentures? Traditional dentures rest on the gums and rely on suction alone to stay secure. Many of these dentures users struggle to keep their dentures in place, especially on the lower jaw. If you wear traditional dentures, you may know the hassle of messy adhesives and embarrassment and frustration of slipping dentures. You may find yourself over-applying or overusing adhesives, which the FDA recommends to avoid doing because it can cause nerve damage. Fortunately, there is a solution to those hassles: overdenture implants.

Dental implants are small metal anchors that are placed in your upper or lower jaw. Over time, the implant will assimilate with the bone to create a more stable, natural base for dentures. The overdentures fit over these implants or existing roots. Although the implants are permanent, the overdentures can be easily removed for cleaning and care! Overdenture also provide other advantages:

  • Have you ever been afraid to eat certain foods because of denture slipping? With implants, your dentures will stay firmly in place so you can thoroughly chew any food. This can aid in more effective digestion and absorption of nutrients. Many traditional denture wearers know how embarrassing it can be for dentures to dislodge while eating or talking. With implants, you can speak clearly and confidently because you know your dentures will stay in place.
  • Because the implants are integrated into your jaw they will continue to work the bone when you chew and talk. This can slow down bone loss and deterioration that is natural when teeth are missing.
  • Ends the cost and hassle of messy creams and adhesives!
