Are you looking for a restoration to replace lost teeth that offers a more secure fit and eliminates the concerns of slipping? Look no further than overdentures. They provide unique benefits to patients who wish to retain their chewing ability. At Century Dental, we offer custom-made dentures that fit your mouth.
What Is An Overdenture?
This type of dental prosthesis replaces an entire arch or several missing teeth. It is one of the most practical measures utilized in preventive dentistry. The restoration matches the luster and color of your natural teeth; hence no one will tell that your smile is not entirely natural. Overdentures can fit one or more dental implants or remaining natural teeth. This makes them a unique solution for tooth loss.
Am I A Candidate For An Overdenture?
You may be a potential candidate for an overdenture if you have lost multiple teeth. To be a good candidate for an overdenture, the first thing is that you need to have good oral health. Your dentist will inspect your gums and teeth. If you have any signs of gum disease or tooth decay, the dentist must treat them first. If you have complete tooth loss, you will need to have several dental implants to support the overdentures. If you have several healthy teeth remaining, the dentist can fabricate an overdenture that can be incorporated into your natural teeth.
Benefits of Having an Overdenture
Overdentures have numerous benefits.
Enjoying the Foods You Love
With conventional dentures, it is challenging to manage complex and chewy foods. Overdentures enable you to chew and break down hard food more effectively. This will help increase the nutrients in your body and help in digestion.
Regaining Your Self-Esteem
Overdentures help to prevent the deterioration of the facial structure. This is because it will keep your jawbone stimulated. Hence it will not shrink, especially in areas with a missing natural tooth. Moreover, you will not get embarrassed due to your face structure change.
Eliminating the Need for Adhesives
Dentures can quickly become loose since they are held in place by adhesives. Moreover, the adhesive can become messy and affect the way your food tastes. Overdentures do not require adhesives and the related extra mess, cost, and hassle.
Improving Your Health
Overdentures will help you improve your speech and chewing function and enhance your smile. All of this will have a positive impact on your physical and psychological health.
Preventing Bone Loss
Overdentures are normally secured using titanium implants that fuse with the bone. This will significantly help you to preserve your jawbone. This makes it better when compared to regular dentures, which accelerate bone loss.
Overdentures fit better in your jaw than dentures which are held by adhesives. This eliminates or reduces unnecessary movement during talking and eating while increasing stability. This also lessens the possibility of gum sores and irritation.
