Enjoy the security and improved function of an implant-supported overdenture! Patients who wear traditional dentures understand the struggle of using them. On some days, conventional dentures don’t seem to fit right. On others, they won’t stay put. That’s why patients love the custom fit of their new implant-supported dentures.
What Is an Implant-Supported Overdenture?
Unlike the old-fashioned type of dentures, implant-supported overdentures don’t use adhesive. Instead, they attach to several dental implants for a much more secure fit. The dentures offer a convenient, removable option that clicks into place when a patient puts them in each morning. Most patients can receive their implant-retained overdenture without the need for bone grafting.
The implant-supported dentures offered by our team at Stratman Family Dentistry look and feel like natural teeth. Our goal is to provide patients with a permanent dental solution that:
- Fits well
- Restores function
- Remains imperceptible
- Improves confidence
The Benefits of Implant-Supported Dentures
Implant-supported dentures represent a life-changing dental solution. If Dr. Stratman determines a patient to be a good candidate for implant-retained dentures, the patient can look forward to various health and lifestyle benefits.
As mentioned, implant-supported dentures offer superior stability when compared to traditional dentures because they click into place. Once secured, they also provide up to 300% of the bite force achievable with conventional dentures. Plus, implant-supported dentures’ proven stability alleviates any worry of the dentures accidentally shifting or falling out while speaking.
Bone Loss Prevention
One of the primary health benefits of implant-supported dentures involves the reduction of bone loss in the jaw. Patients with dental implants experience less bone atrophy because the implanted posts stimulate the surrounding bone, increasing the production of new bone tissue. As a result, patients enjoy a high likelihood of avoiding the typical sunken facial appearance.
Improved Speech and Mastication
Perhaps the most crucial benefit of implant-supported overdentures involves the restoration of vital speech and chewing functions. The secure fit of implant-retained dentures allows wearers to speak with confidence without the worry of spitting out their prostheses. Patients also enjoy the ability to chew harder foods that were previously impossible to eat.
Many of our current patients at Stratman Family Dentistry have reported improved sociability, enhanced self-image, and an increased willingness to smile. Those who have worn traditional dentures know the limitations of avoiding certain foods, worrying about a mishap, and constantly checking the stability of dentures. With implant-supported dentures, you can be yourself without any additional concerns.
Saves Time and Money
The fact that patients can quickly click-in their dentures saves a lot of prep time. Plus, never having to buy denture adhesive again also saves patients a significant sum of money over the dentures’ lifespan. Also, depending on your dental insurance coverage, at least a portion of the procedure may be covered.
