Understanding the Basics of Overdentures
Posted on 8/10/2020 by Dr. David Wanserski
Understanding the Basics of OverdenturesLots of patients try to find a replacement for missing teeth. Nowadays it's hard to find an affordable solution. Luckily, overdentures are the answer.

What Are Overdentures?


Overdenture implants are dentures that are supported by implants. They are also called implant dentures. The first thing your dentist will do is place the implants in your mouth. Later on, fake teeth are put on them, providing you with a real smile. After a patient gets the dentures installed, they have to maintain proper care and hygiene like natural teeth. Patients still have to floss and brush every day.

Advantages of Overdentures


The implants are more reliable than typical dentures. Your dentures won't leave your mouth. The dentures fit very comfortably. They also help support your mouth whenever you talk or eat to prevent the likelihood of getting mouth sores. You don't have to worry about clacking sounds while chewing. You are free to eat whatever you want. The implants allow you to manage food more effectively, which improves your digestion and nutrition. Once it is secured, the implant will help your teeth stay in the right place, and it can handle any type of food. They can last most of your life, and you won't have to worry about extraneous costs. You will have a beautiful smile as long as you keep up with good hygiene. The implants can protect your teeth for a very long time. With the implants, the patient's face won't change shape at all, and the person's jawbone is supported by the implants. You won't experience any gum irritation.
