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.

Are you looking for a tooth replacement solution that provides maximum comfort and stability? Overdentures may be just what you need. These removable dentures are designed to fit securely over dental implants or remaining natural teeth, providing a natural-looking and secure solution for missing teeth. Overdentures offer several benefits, including improved oral health and better overall quality of life.
Improved Oral Health
Overdentures prevent bone loss by stimulating the jawbone and gums, which helps to maintain the structure of the face and jaw.
Comfortable and Secure Fit
Overdentures fit securely over dental implants or remaining natural teeth, providing stability and comfort that traditional dentures cannot match.
Natural Look and Feel
Overdentures are custom-made to fit your mouth, providing a natural-looking and comfortable solution for missing teeth.
Overdentures can improve speech and pronunciation, as they are designed to fit securely and comfortably in your mouth.
With a natural-looking and secure fit, overdentures can improve your overall quality of life by increasing your confidence in social situations.
Would you like to replace your missing teeth?
Having missing teeth can be upsetting for just about anyone. It will impact your ability to eat, sometimes speak, and affect how confident you feel when smiling. However, there is a better solution to living with missing teeth, with overdentures. These dental fixtures can replace several missing teeth in the top or bottom arch, restoring the appearance of your smile, as well as give better external features.
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.
Why choose overdentures?
Overdentures are classified into two groups, as to how they are attached or the type of abutment used. The first is using the natural tooth as a means of support, while the other is using an implant-supported system to stabilize the restoration.
It hasn’t been found that either option is better; 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 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 to the way your natural teeth are.
Improved function with overdentures
We know that living with missing teeth can be difficult. But with overdentures, we can restore your smile and have you feeling like your old self again.

WHAT ARE OVERDENTURES AND HOW DO THEY WORK?
Overdentures are a type of denture that fit over existing teeth or dental implants. They are designed to be removable and can be taken out for cleaning. Overdentures work by fitting snugly over the remaining teeth or implants, creating a stable foundation for the denture. This can improve the fit and comfort of the denture, as well as help preserve the remaining teeth or implants.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR OVERDENTURES?
A good candidate for overdentures is someone who has lost several or all of their teeth, but still has some remaining teeth or dental implants. Candidates should also have healthy gums and be committed to good oral hygiene habits. People who smoke or have certain health conditions may not be good candidates for overdentures, and should consult with a dental professional to discuss alternative options.
HOW DO OVERDENTURES DIFFER FROM TRADITIONAL DENTURES?
Overdentures differ from traditional dentures in that they are designed to fit over existing teeth or dental implants. This can help improve the fit and stability of the denture, as well as preserve the remaining teeth or implants. Traditional dentures, on the other hand, rest on the gums and may require adhesives or pastes to keep them in place.
ARE OVERDENTURES COMFORTABLE TO WEAR?
Overdentures can be more comfortable to wear than traditional dentures, as they fit more securely over the remaining teeth or implants. However, it may take some time to adjust to wearing overdentures, and some people may experience some discomfort or soreness during the initial period of wearing them.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY OVERDENTURES?
To care for your overdentures, it is important to remove them daily and clean them thoroughly with a denture brush and denture cleaner. You should also clean your remaining teeth or implants and gums, and maintain good oral hygiene habits such as brushing and flossing. It is also important to schedule regular check-ups with your dental professional to ensure that your overdentures are functioning properly and to detect any issues early on.
HOW MUCH DO OVERDENTURES COST?
The cost of overdentures depends on the patient’s unique situation. Not everyone needs a full set of overdentures, and not everyone opts for using dental implants. The average cost per implant can be between $2000-$6000. A complete set of overdentures can roughly cost about $30,000.
