Implant Overdentures and
A Great Alternative to Traditional Dentures
What is an Implant
overdenture fits over your own remaining natural teeth roots or
dental implants that have been installed by Dr. Dorfman . The implant provides
you with excellent stability and support for your denture implants.
How are implant
overdentures or denture implants different from regular dentures?
Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported
implant dentures are held in
place by dental attachments which provide the retentive strength that you
desire. An attachment retained implant overdenture will provide maximum
retention, increase in function, and added health benefits. Implant overdenture
attachments are composed of two working components; an implant abutment
that is threaded into your implant, and the denture cap which is retained in the
underside of your denture.
The most important consideration in your decision to choose
an implant overdenture
or implant denture is
the limited retention and stability of a traditional denture which relies on
suction alone. Over time, retention only worsens due to continual bone loss
(atrophy) of your dental arches from the lack of teeth. When a tooth loses bone
support through the years, its root can be saved and used to anchor an implant
overdenture. The significant concerns regarding function, retention, stability,
mastication (chewing), and speaking can be overcome by maintaining the level of
bone present in the upper jaw (maxilla) and lower jaw (mandible). These issues
can be successfully accomplished by having dental implants placed by Dr.
What are the benefits of implant overdentures or implant
dental implants placed will preserve bone and will dramatically reduce bone
resorption and deterioration that results in loss of jawbone height.
Implant overdentures will control facial contour changes that lead to premature
wrinkles and aging.
Implant overdentures will allow you to chew your food better and speak more
clearly. Studies have proven that overdentures contribute to improved chewing
efficiency and phonetics.
Loose dentures that cause embarrassment will be eliminated. Messy denture creams
and adhesives are no longer needed with denture implants.
