What is an Overdenture?
An overdenture is a unique kind of “snap-on” denture that uses 2-4 dental implants for additional support. Overdentures are sometimes called “implant-supported” or “implant-stabilized” dentures. They have special locators under the base of the denture, which clip onto the corresponding dental implants underneath.
Overdentures in Parma Heights, OH, are ideal for anyone who has extensive bone loss and may find it difficult to wear a traditional denture. In some cases, Dr. Jaffe in Parma Heights, Ohio, may be able to retrofit a newer denture to snap onto dental implants.
Why Choose an Overdenture?
Are Overdentures Right for Me?
Following significant tooth loss, overdentures can help you regain your bite and facial symmetry. If you are missing all of your teeth or your remaining teeth are non-restorable and need to be extracted, dentures are a fast and effective way to restore your smile. Adding as few as 2-4 implants can provide you with increased confidence during daytime wear, preventing your denture from rocking, rubbing, or feeling uncomfortable whenever you’re biting down.
Overdentures are perfect for candidates who want a mid-range alternative between conventional dentures and a full-arch hybrid implant system. Because overdentures are fairly affordable, they provide a predictable upgrade from traditional removable dentures without adding too much to your smile investment.
