What Are Overdentures?

Overdentures is the name given to the restoration dentures that are used to be secured on top of the dental implants you would of previously had placed. They are a secure way to replace full sets of missing teeth.

What’s The Difference Between Dentures and Overdentures?

The key difference is that dentures will be a removable option that is held in by the suction created between your bone ridges and the denture itself. The overdentures are a secure and stabile way at replacing teeth as they are fitted on top of dental implants. The implants will act like the roots of your new teeth and will help stabilise the region of your mouth.

Why Have Overdentures?

When you have lost your teeth or are in the process of losing your teeth, not only will the aesthetics of your smile be affected but it will also have an impact on the functionality of your teeth. Eating with missing teeth can cause problems and place further strain on your remaining teeth. There are a number of options that can be chosen to replace missing teeth. The gold standard is to have an implant retained option as this offers the most stability, ensuring you won’t have to worry about your teeth falling out when you are enjoying your favourite foods.

Am I Suitable For Implants?

Unfortunately not everyone will be suitable to have implants as there has to be sufficient bone in the jaw for them to be placed. We offer free consultations so we can assess your situation and suitability of treatments we offer.

Teeth Implants Vs Dental Bridges

Book your free consultation

Missing teeth can be troublesome for both aesthetic reasons as well as functional. Without all your teeth it can cause issues when eating your favourite food as well as affecting your speech. The obvious affects on your aesthetics is down to how it will appear to other people and it can also knock your self confidence.

When deciding to replace missing teeth there can be a number of different options that may be suitable.

Secure Tooth Replacement

Dental implants are a secure way to replace missing teeth. They comprise of a titanium or ceramic pegs that are placed within your jawbone. These then act as replacement roots that will hold the new tooth or teeth in place. The process of getting implants can take between 3-6 months as there needs to be a healing period to allow for the area where the implants were placed to heal.

Bridging a Gap

If you have a gappy smile and you are not too keen on the implant route, then a bridge may be a more preferred option for you. Depending on where the gap is or how many teeth you have missing, the type of bridge that will best meet your needs can vary from one patient to the next. A bridge is effectively a restoration that comprises of two main parts – the bridge, and the pontics. The pontics are effectively false teeth that are attached to the bridge. The way the bridge is then fitted in your mouth will depend on what type of bridge it is and where the gaps are. We will explain this in more detail at the free consultation once we have assessed your case.

It is possible to go for the best of both words and have an implant retained bridge, which will be more suitable for areas in the mouth that does not have adjacent teeth.

Are Dental Implants Safe?

When placed by a trained professional then yes. Dental implants are a tooth replacement option that offers stability and security. They are considered the gold standard method for tooth replacement due to the benefits they offer.

At our clinic we would never place implants unless we deemed you are suitable for them. Unfortunately not everyone will be suitable for this treatment and does depend on several factors. To successfully place dental implants there needs to be sufficient volume of bone to be placed into and for the bone and implant to fuse correctly.

If you smoke we wouldn’t offer implants as they have been linked with dental implants failing. We always advise smokers this would only be a viable option if they were to successfully quit, as smoking can lead to bone loss.

Is There A Guarantee With Implants?

There is no guarantee’s with implants or other dental treatments. They all have associated risks involved and we clearly outline what the treatment will involve and if you would be happy with proceeding. Our promise to the patient is that if they are viable to have implants and they go for the treatment, they will leave our clinic with a fully functioning replaced tooth or teeth.

The reason why there is no guarantee’s is because of all the environmental factors that can occur when you leave our clinic. For example accidents, trauma to the mouth, taking up of bad habits such as smoking. As a practice we will only ever place implants if we are happy they are going to be a suitable and successful option without any of the above happening.

It is also then important to attend your regular check ups to ensure that your teeth remain healthy. Your teeth are very similar to cars and with good regular care, they can last longer.

All on 4 is a system that works on the principal of placing 4 implants into the patients jaw for a full arch replacement. The locations of where these implants are placed (2 angled and 2 straight), means it is possible to place restorations on 4 implants (case dependant).

Am I Suitable For All On 4?

Like most treatments we are able to offer, not everyone will be a suitable candidate for certain types of treatments. When it comes to dental implants in particular, you will require sufficient bone dentisty and quality for implants to be successfully placed. Due to the nature and complexity of such treatments, they need to be carefully planned by the implant dentist, Dr Faresh Desai, before we move to the stage of placing them. The other thing to take into account is the anatomical structure of everyone’s jaw will vary from patient to patient. So a CT scan may be required during a full case assessment, so we are able to identify where the vital nerve structure is located in your jaw.

What If I’m Not Suitable?

When we meet new patients we will always explore all various options that will meet their needs. We will look at it objectively and will discuss with you what your are exactly hoping to achieve. From this, we will then identify various options and will inform you of what that will mean as the end result.

How Much Will All on 4 Cost?

We will always try to provide you with prices as soon as possible but implant cases may require further investigation to ensure everything is planned accurately.

Dental implants are a secure way to replace missing teeth. A tooth is made up of 2 parts – a crown and root. The crown is the visible part of the tooth, and the root is the part that is hidden by the gums and in your jawbone. When a tooth is lost (or needed to be extracted), it is important to look into the different types of gap management options that are available.

What Are Gap Management Options?

These are treatments that are designed to replace missing teeth and help manage your gaps in your mouth, giving you a fuller smile. Some of these options include:

Dental implants are considered the gold standard when it comes to replacing missing teeth. This is because it offers the most stability and support, allowing you to enjoy every day life without worrying about your teeth falling out.

Unfortunately, not every patient will be suitable for dental implants. If you have gum disease, this will need to be treated before you will qualify for implants. This is because the disease will actively eat away at the gums and bone in the jaw and will cause implants to fail, so the jaw and gums will need to be stabilised before they can be placed. We are also unable to place them for patient who smoke, as this can also cause them to fail.

In the first instance, we always offer a free consultation so we can explain all the options that are suitable for you and give you the facts that you need to make an educated decision on how you would like to proceed.

We understand dental treatments can be confusing as there are now so many different treatments, but we will work with you to reach your goal. Call us to book your free consultation today.
