Overdentures can be either complete or partial dentures that are attached to or placed on top of the tooth structure or implants. Generally speaking, they offer improved retention and function compared to regular dentures, which may require refitting after a certain period of use.
Implant-supported dentures are secured by a specific number of dental implants that serve as a sturdy base. These implants can either be interconnected using a metal bar or individually paired with attachments, which are then integrated into the prosthesis, enhancing its stability and function.
Tooth-supported overdentures can be anchored to healthy natural teeth, eliminating the necessity for tooth extraction. Typically, the canine teeth are utilised for this support. The dentist may either link the natural teeth using a metal bar or leave them unconnected, attaching an apparatus directly onto the tooth or bar. This apparatus then securely fits into the base of the denture. These are versatile, suitable for application in both the upper and lower jaws.
An overdenture is an excellent solution for patients who have lost teeth and seek to regain quality of life. They offer various significant benefits, such as:
- Improved Digestion: They provide more stability than regular dentures held in place by adhesives, facilitating more efficient chewing. This improved chewing efficiency aids the stomach in breaking down food.
- Jawbone Stimulation: Both tooth and implant-supported overdentures stimulate the jawbone during chewing. This stimulation helps reduce the bone loss that naturally occurs when teeth are missing.
- Retention of Facial Features: They can help in preserving natural facial features by minimising bone loss.
- Enhanced Comfort and Confidence: Overdentures fit more securely on the jaw, providing wearers with increased comfort and confidence while eating and speaking.
