Implant overdentures can change the way your dentures feel and the way you feel about your dentures. They increase your comfort and confidence, and they look completely natural.
What Are Implant Overdentures?
Implant overdentures are also known as implant-supported dentures or implant-retained dentures. Implant dentures are firmly secured onto titanium implants, or screws, that are surgically placed in your jawbone. Attaching dentures to implants allows for a great degree of retention—up to 20 pounds. While traditional dentures rest on your gums, implant dentures are retained by snap-on or screw-on attachments.
Better, more secure fit
Implant dentures lock in place and prevent movement while you eat and speak. They function like real teeth and allow you to bite and eat any type of food.
Improved eating experience
While traditional dentures cover your entire palate or roof of your mouth, implant dentures have a horseshoe design that leaves the palate exposed. They help you fully enjoy the experience of eating and tasting your food. Also, the design, along with strong retention, prevents food from getting trapped beneath your dentures.
The strong retention of implant dentures helps you feel confident during social interactions because they stay in place when you speak. You won’t be embarrassed by dentures that slip or fall out.
Preservation of bone
Dental implants stimulate and preserve the jawbone for the rest of your life. This prevents the bone from dissolving, which also promotes natural facial support and youthful aesthetics.
Better quality of life
Knowing that your dentures are always secured in place gives you the confidence to socialize, talk, sing, laugh, and eat your favorite foods again. Implant overdentures have become the standard of care for teeth replacement.
Insist on Quality
Quality implant overdentures can be a permanent solution for stabilizing your dentures. Although you might be able to find cheap implants from a dentist who takes shortcuts, implant mistakes can be costly and cause significant discomfort, including:

“Choosing to go with implant dentures was one of the best decisions I made in my life. My regular dentures were constantly loose, my gums were always sore, and I could only eat soft food. But now I can eat anything I want and feel confident that my dentures will stay in place. Thank you, Dr. Saleh, for giving my life back.” – Lisa J.
