Implant Supported Dentures
Voorhees, Moorestown, & Mullica Hills, NJ

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 supported 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.

Benefits of Implant Supported Overdentures

Implant supported overdentures provide several significant benefits. These include:
•  Looking, feeling, and functioning just like real teeth. Your smile is beautifully restored, and you can eat and speak confidently again.
•  Greater comfort.
•  Cost effective.
•  Care is much easier. You can brush and floss your implants just like real teeth.
•  Preserving the integrity and health of your jawbone.

Overdentures provide you with an incredible option for replacing missing teeth that restores the health of your mouth, the functions of your teeth, and the beauty of your smile.

What Are Implant Supported Dentures?

When adults lose their permanent teeth, opting for implant-supported dentures is a reliable and effective way to maintain their oral health and restore their smile.

Implant supported dentures look and feel like actual teeth and are the next best thing to natural teeth. These dentures sustain the mouth’s overall structure and aesthetic appearance.

Implant supported dentures are overdentures attached to and supported by dental implants, extending straight out from the gums.

Overdentures are complete or partial dentures sitting atop or attached to dental implants. They are removable and offer better retention and function than conventional dentures.

Can You Get Implant Supported Dentures After You've Had Dentures?

If you’ve worn dentures for a long time, you can still opt for implant supported ones.

Dentures improve the way your teeth look, but you can’t escape the hassle that comes with them. You need to remove them at night and wash and soak them so they don’t harbor bacteria or become deformed.

An implant keeps those dentures in place and eliminates the need to remove them every night.
Implant supported dentures are rapidly gaining popularity.
•  Dentures are not a stable prosthetic. They wobble and irritate the gums and tissues by constantly rubbing against them.
•  Speaking and eating while wearing dentures takes patience and practice.
•  Denture wearers often require the application of foul-tasting dental adhesives.
•  Chewy and sticky food is tricky to eat.
•  Prolonged use of dentures can loosen them, causing them to fall out and embarrass the wearer.
•  The daily cleaning time of dentures is nearly 20 minutes.

Implant supported dentures are better than conventional implants because the dentures are fused with implants attached to the patient’s jaw.

Can Implant Supported Dentures Be Replaced With Dentures?

Implant supported dentures are nearly permanent; hence they cannot be replaced with dentures.

What Are Mini Denture Implants?

Are you afraid you won’t be a good candidate for implants because you don’t have enough jawbone to support the conventional implant? Or maybe your health may not allow you to undergo a lengthy procedure such as restorative dental implants. In that case, mini dental implants might be your next best option.

These small implants do not require complete embedment within the jawbone. Mini dental implants are constructed precisely like regular implants but on a smaller scale. With a diameter of less than 3mm, they are screwed directly into the jawbone.

Mini dental implants offer the same advantages as traditional implants, but their relatively small size ensures little invasiveness.
