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.

Types of Implant-Supported Overdentures


There are several types of implant supported overdentures, which allows us to customize your treatment to your needs.
•  Fixed implant suppored crown and bridge. Fixed implant supported crown and bridges use 6 to 10 posts to support your teeth. Your new teeth are secured to the posts with small screws.
•  Removable implant retained overdenture or bar retained. Overdentures are sometimes used when you do not have enough bone mass to support 6 to 8 posts. Your dentures are clipped into a 2-4 implants or a titanium bar is attached to these posts, and your teeth clip into place.
•  All-on4® Treatment Concept. All-on-4 is another option for replacing a full arch of missing teeth when you lack sufficient bone mass. With this treatment, you can receive implants without requiring a bone graft first. The four posts are placed strategically in your jaw. Your dental restorations are secured into place using screws.
