What is an Overdenture?

Posted on 3/6/2023 by Platte Valley Dental Care
What is an Overdenture?Denture wearers frequently complain about their dentures failing to stay in the correct place. It is extremely embarrassing for an individual's dentures to fall out. It has a significant impact on a person's ability to speak, eat, and perceive themselves when their dentures slip. With overdentures, this humiliating slippage can be removed. To retain an overdenture in position, a dental implant is fastened to it. These are typically selected by people who have many missing teeth but are unable to have a complete mouth repair because there is not enough bone to support dental implants. After implants have been implanted into a person's jawbone, dentures are attached to the implants. While speaking, chewing, and eating, they remain securely in place.

Caring for Overdentures

Overdentures should be removed daily and cleaned. During this daily cleaning, bacteria that cause infections, plaque buildup, and bad breath are removed. A client wearing an overdenture must keep the tissues in their mouth free from the infection since infections can lead to the overdenture becoming loose, bone loss, and chronic infection in the future.

Getting an Overdenture

Dental implants may not be available to a patient for several months since the healing process must be carried out throughout the surgery. Even though it might take a lot of time, helping people feel better is worth the time and effort. With glueless dentures, patients may live a more carefree, low-maintenance lifestyle without having to worry about poorly adhering dentures or the need to clean them frequently. A comprehensive examination of your mouth will be performed by your dentist before an overdenture can be fitted. Furthermore, we may take X-rays and impressions of your mouth so that we have a clear idea of what we are dealing with. Providing you with the best treatment depends on each of these components.
