Implant Supported Dentures
Do you like your dentures? Do you have dentures that sometimes slip out of place or need an adhesive to fit more securely? Then you might be a good candidate for implant supported dentures.
Implant supported dentures use traditional dental implants or mini-implants to provide some stability to your removable denture. The denture is sometimes called an overdenture, because it is placed directly over the dental implant. When you wear an overdenture, it feels like you are wearing a regular denture but it fits more securely.
Removable Implant Overdentures
Your overdenture should be removed at night and during daily oral hygiene. This prevents bone loss and keeps your gum tissues healthy. After you soak your overdenture over night, simply brush it clean and then place it back into your mouth.
If you’ve struggled with traditional dentures, an implant supported denture is your best option. It is ideal for people that do not want a fully implant retained denture or are not traditional implant candidates. Instead, all that is needed is enough bone for just a few implants to be placed to provide extra stability.
Start Wearing Your Dentures the First Day
After your implants are installed, you do not need to wait any longer before you begin wearing your dentures. Some types of implants require several months of healing before the prosthesis is installed. With implant supported dentures you can have them delivered with your implants on the very same day.
