Implant Supported Over Dentures

Implant Supported Overdentures

In cases where all of the teeth have been lost or need to be replaced, an over-denture or full arch bridge may be a more practical and economical solution to individual implants. They can be supported by a varying number of implants, depending on the condition of the bone and gum and other factors determined by a 3D Dental Tomography … So let’s take a look at the options

 

There are three main types of overdentures:

Implant-Retained, Gum Supported

With this treatment, the over-denture rests directly on your gums and is attached to implants placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The over-denture, which is removable, is secured to your implants through attachments fixed into the denture.

 

Bar-Retained, Implant Supported

With this treatment, the overdenture is connected to attachments on a metal bar that is in turn connected to implants surgically placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The overdenture, which is removable, is secured to the bar through attachments fixed into the denture.

 

Fixed, Implant Supported

With this treatment, the over-denture is secured directly to implants placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The over-denture is only removable by a dentist. This option gives the closest resemblance to natural teeth and gums
