Implant Supported Overdenture
Tooth loss is a serious issue that impacts your entire life. Moreover, the more teeth you lose, the greater the effects. When you lose an entire arch of teeth, your abilities to bite and chew are significantly affected. In addition to losing the ability to enjoy all of your favorite foods, your digestion and nutrition suffer. Speaking becomes a major challenge, and you may find that others have a more difficult time understanding you. The quality of your smile suffers, which can significantly impact your confidence. If you are missing an entire arch of teeth, Optimum Oral Surgery Group can help with implant supported overdentures.
What Are Implants?
Implants, or dental implants, are a modern-day treatment designed to replace missing teeth. They are unlike any traditional type of tooth replacement procedure. This treatment uses small titanium posts to support your replacement teeth. The posts are surgically implanted into your jawbone, where the bone fuses with them to turn them into replacement roots. The posts not only support your new teeth, but they also restore stimulation to your jawbone to stop the bone loss that follows tooth loss. Implants can be used in some different situations, including replacing an entire arch of teeth.
Placing Implant Supported Overdentures
Placing implant supported overdentures requires you to undergo a surgical procedure. After receiving a local anesthetic and sedation, small incisions are made in the gums to expose the bone underneath. Next, small holes are drilled into the bone, and the implant posts are placed immediately inside. Your gums are sutured closed, and temporary teeth are placed. Once you have fully healed and your bone has fused to the posts, a process that can take several months to complete, your final restorations are created and placed.
