Implant Overdenture in Philadelphia

What are Implant Overdentures?

Overdentures represent a transformative dental solution tailored to meet the unique needs of elderly patients who haven’t lost all their teeth. Implant Overdentures are thoughtfully designed prostheses that securely fit over your existing teeth or dental implants. They provide a comfortable and stable alternative to traditional dentures by utilizing the support from either the roots of your natural teeth that are still present or from strategically placed dental implants.

Types of Overdentures

  1. Implant-Supported Overdentures: With implant-supported overdentures, your dentist surgically places dental implants into your jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. They then anchor the overdenture onto these implants, providing maximum stability and retention. Implant-supported overdentures can be fixed permanently or designed as removable.
  2. Tooth-Supported Overdentures: For tooth-supported overdentures, your dentist attaches the overdenture to any remaining natural teeth you have. They use clasps or precision attachments to secure the overdenture. This type provides less stability than implant-supported ones if you have fewer natural teeth left. But it may work well if implants aren’t an option.
  3. Combination Overdentures: Combination overdentures use both dental implants and natural teeth for support. Your dentist anchors them to implants and remaining teeth using attachments. This combines the stability of implants with the retention of natural teeth. But the treatment time and cost are greater than tooth-supported options.
  4. Snap-On Overdentures: Snap-on overdentures attach to dental implants using a special snap attachment system. This makes them removable so you can take them out for cleaning. They offer better stability and retention than conventional dentures. But the implants and attachments make them a more expensive and lengthy treatment.

Benefits of Implant Supported Overdentures

Below are some of the key advantages of implant overdentures:

  • Cost-Effective Solution: When compared to other implant-supported restoration methods, Overdentures require fewer implants for each jaw. This reduces the overall cost making it a more affordable solution.

  • Reduced Need for Bone Grafting: The unique angled placement of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch. This often eliminates the need for bone grafting.

  • Faster Treatment and Healing Time: You can have your replacement arch attached to your implants immediately after insertion. This accelerates both the treatment process and the healing time.

  • Improved Stability: Overdentures provide greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.

  • Enhanced Quality of Life: With Overdentures, you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence. They allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery.

  • Scientifically Proven and Documented: Overdentures have good clinical outcomes from decade-long studies with favorable results. They are a proven and reliable solution for missing teeth.

  • Versatile Attachment Systems: Overdentures stay connected with bar and clip attachment methods or use a variety of abutment-based attachments (ball, magnets, and resilient stud attachments such as Locators). This allows for a tailored approach to meet your specific needs.
