Implant and Overdentures

Overdentures are attached and supported by dental implants. Ascent Dental Care Solihull's highly trained dentists will identify if there is enough bone for the dental implants to be successfully placed.

Why would you need Overdentures?

If you have lost most or all of your teeth
Extensive bone loss
Support for your existing dentures
Improve speech and ability to eat
Re-build confidence

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)


This elderly gentleman was very upset with his previous unsecure denture. Our dental technician Kevin custom made his denture which was then securely fitted to dental implants to give him a full and functional mouth.


How long does the Overdenture treatment take?

The Overdenture treatment will vary from patient to patient (discussed during initial
consultation) but can be completed in as little as 3-4 months.

Four implants – Overdenture

This patient suffered from gum disease affecting the upper teeth and wore an upper partial denture. The upper teeth were removed and 4 implants placed following Ct scan planning. The implants were splinted together with a bar and an overdenture was provided.


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)


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


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
