Benefits of Overdentures

Overdentures are best suited for patients:

  • Wishing to have the benefits of dental implants, without the need for bone grafting
  • Wanting a dental solution for lower costs
  • Who want a secure denture that will not affect eating and chewing

Overdentures also prevent further bone loss, as dental implants supports the surrounding bone structure (compared to conventional dentures)

What will the procedure involve?

After the initial consultation to identify which treatment will suit you, the Overdenture procedure will involve:

Initial Diagnostic Stage

  • X-rays and impressions will be in order to produce study models which are a copy of your jaws
  • A CT scan may be taken, to help diagnose and visualise the jaws 3 dimensionally ensuring there is enough bone for the dental implants, also establishing where your sinuses and nerves are (to avoid during procedure)

(Temporary dentures will be made for the patient to be worn during this period below)

Stabilisation

  • Any other treatment required shall be completed before the implants are placed eg:
  • Scale and Polish
  • Gum Treatment
  • Removal of decay from teeth to kept
  • Replacement of failing restorations
  • Extraction of teeth which are of poor prognosis

Implant Placement

  • The implants will be placed into the jawbone based on the assessment of the x-rays and CT scans
  • Implants can be placed under local anaesthetic or intravenous sedation. This will be decided prior to starting the treatment by consultation with the dentist and yourself
  • Before the next visit can take place, the implants will need to heal up and integrate with the jawbone. This process normally takes 3 months, during this time you will have your temporary dentures so you can continue with your day to day routine

Restoration

  • After 3 months we will start restoring the implants. A healing collar is then placed onto the implants (under local anaesthetic) to form the connection between dental implants and overdentures
  • The newly created overdentures will be fitted and the temporary dentures can be disposed of
  • The dentist will show the patient how to look after their new overdentures
