Are Overdentures A Good Option for You?

Posted on 5/29/2020 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Are Overdentures A Good Option for You?
There are a few types of overdentures available for those who are looking for a dental solution without having to remove more teeth from the mouth. Overdentures can help maintain the appearance of a natural smile without having to resort to further extractions. They can also reduce the shrinking of bone by redirecting the pressure of the jaw to a dental plate. Many people can benefit from the use of overdentures.

How Overdentures Can Help You

If you have an issue such as cleft palate, abnormal jaw development, extreme levels of occlusion, or are missing more than six teeth from your mouth, then overdentures may be something you can benefit from. They are removable like regular dentures, but can also help keep your jawbone strong. This may also ensure you do not have to have regular resizing such as you would with standard dentures, as it works with the teeth you already have. It can also preserve your bone structure and even prevent your teeth from shifting or becoming loose.

Types of Overdentures Available

Tooth-supported overdentures fit over the teeth you already have and reduce the likelihood you will have to have more teeth removed. Extraction can often make people anxious and they are also traumatic to your mouth, which is why we would prefer to salvage the teeth you already have if at all possible. The use of implant-supported dentures can also help preserve your jaw and may even prevent resorption, which is the cause of dental degeneration. This is an especially useful option for those who are missing several teeth on one side and may not have a tooth to use as an anchor.
Overdentures may be an effective means of giving you back your smile without having to resort to excessive surgery or removal of your natural teeth. If you would like to learn more about how overdentures could help you, please give us a call.
