Over Dentures - Dentures with a Difference
When a patient has lost all their teeth it can be an emotionally upsetting experience just showing up at the dentist. Some feel that they will just keep their original dentures for life. While this may be tempting it is not the right solution, nor is it going to help the the patient feel better.
There are ever changing and developing technologies and methods that are available to regain the smile once enjoyed with your natural teeth. Over Dentures are one of those.
What are Over Dentures?
Over Dentures are dentures specifically designed to go over Dental Implants. They use the implants and a series of bars to form a solid attachment point for a denture plate. So the Over Denture is a denture to go over Implants.
Typically made of plastic resin, Over Dentures are hard wearing and long lasting and less expensive than Full Bridges, but do not have the same aesthetic appeal as the full bridge. Each have their appropriate uses, and both make use of Implant attachment.
