Removable Prosthesis for Replacing Missing Teeth.
Overdentures can be supported by the root of your natural teeth or by dental implants. They are considered an excellent solution to replacing missing teeth. By using an overdenture for replacing missing teeth, patients can preserve their bone tissue and have sensory advantages when the tooth root is still present.

Why Choose Overdentures?
It hasn’t been found that either option is better than the other; both work very well to restore the look and feel of a person’s smile.
There are upsides to both the implant-supported system, and the use of the natural tooth root for the purpose of overdentures. One feature that many dentists support is the fact that both options preserve the bone tissue.
Traditional dentures, those used to restore a full set, will ride on the gumline, causing bone loss over time. Overdentures, as the name suggests, go over the gum, but are attached similarly the way your natural teeth are.
Benefits to Choosing Overdentures Include
Overdentures aren’t right for everyone, but they are a suitable replacement for those missing multiple missing teeth on a single arch. For those that have enough healthy bone tissue, dental implants may be the best way to go for securing their overdentures. While overdentures are traditionally removable, they can be fixed into place by your dentist.
Perfect replacement for several missing teeth.
There are very few risks involved with overdentures. But it is essential to note that having dental implants placed can carry its own set of risks because it is oral surgery, the largest being the risk of infection. With overdentures, some risks include a fractured prosthesis, damage to periodontal tissue, tooth decay of the remaining teeth, and bone resorption.
Would You Like to Replace Your Missing Teeth?
Overdentures, no matter if you choose to use dental implants, or your natural root for support, are an excellent choice for anyone that desires a full smile. They can be more cost-effective than other solutions, long-lasting, and more durable, offering the wearer a greater sense of permanent replacement.
