If left untreated, the loss of one or several teeth can not only affect one's appearance but can also lead to various oral and systemic health issues as well. If you are missing your teeth and are seeking to replace them, there are various tooth replacement options available.

In the earlier days, dentures were the most common go-to solution when someone had lost their teeth. Partial dentures have been used since the 7th century B.C, while full dentures have been in use since the 16th century. 

However, traditional dentures offer a slew of drawbacks that include the following: 

  • Physically uncomfortable in the mouth.
  • It can cause sore gums.
  • It can affect one's ability to eat food.
  • Dentures can affect the wearer's ability to speak. 
  • Dentures can slide around or make a clicking sound when the wearer opens their mouth. 
  • Denture replacements are expensive. 
  • It is important to remove dentures every day to clean them.
  • Even if you wear dentures to replace your missing teeth, it can't prevent the deterioration of the bone.

Modern Removable Implant Dentures

Modern implant removable dentures, one of the innovative methods to replace teeth, offer several advantages over traditional dentures. 

If someone has lost a few or all of their teeth, one of the best tooth replacement options is Implant Overdenture or "Snap-On-Dentures." They are apt for those who have jaw bone loss and need bone retention. Implant overdentures do not permanently connect to dental implants but offer a stable anchorage for the teeth. They are fabricated to stay safely and securely in their place with the help of dental implants, offering stability, thus eliminating various disadvantages associated with traditional removable dentures. 

Removable Implant Overdentures - Benefits

Traditional dentures may often slip, become loose, or fall out often while doing even normal activities. Though various denture adhesives are available that claim about securing the dentures to the wearer's mouth, the grip is never strong, nor they may not always last throughout the day. With implant overdentures, these disadvantages are eliminated.  

The major benefits that are offered by implant overdentures are as follows:

  • Lower cost 
  • Easier to clean and take care of as these prostheses can be removed while cleaning. 
  • For the ones who suffer from severe bone loss, implant overdentures add extra facial support. This advantage is achieved by the denture extension that goes under the lips and fills in the space where bone loss happens. 

How Does Implant Overdentures Work?

Implant overdentures involves a multi-step treatment procedure:

  • Our dentist will place the dental implants into the patient's jaw and is left to attach to the jaw bone for about two months. This period allows the bone to grow and develop to the implant at a cellular level.
  • Implant overdentures are custom-fabricated in our dental office to comfortably fit the patient's mouth to match the shape, color, and appearance of the natural teeth. 
  • Since overdentures are attached to dental implants, they offer a secure and non-slip fit, thus preventing any tension and worries.
