Do you need a complete smile reconstruction? If you have lost most or all your teeth, you may have already considered dentures to replace your missing teeth. While dentures are an effective restorative dentistry treatment, they do have some drawbacks. Another option is a combination of dental implants and dentures. Implant overdentures can give you the stability of dental implants but are affordable like dentures. At Avalon Dental Group, we are pleased to offer our patients a wide variety of restoration options, including implant overdentures.
Traditional dentures are removable and are held in place with adhesives. They can slip out of place when you chew or talk, creating embarrassing moments in social situations. While many people use dentures, one of the biggest complaints is the need for the gritty adhesive and the possibility of movement. With implant overdentures, no adhesives are needed; the dentures are held in place with dental implants, creating a permanently secured new smile.
Are Implant Overdentures the Right Choice?
Dental implants are a phenomenal choice for replacing missing teeth, but they can be expensive. If you need a complete smile reconstruction, using dental implants requires adequate bone structure and a big budget to accommodate. For those who want the permanency of dental implants, but the affordability of dentures, implant overdentures are an excellent choice.
With implant overdentures, only a few implants are needed to secure the dentures in place. For those with limited bone structure to maintain dental implants, this is a viable solution. Plus, the use of implants helps stimulate bone growth in the jaw to help maintain the structure of the jaw, which is important for a more youthful appearance.
