Overdentures

Dentures with added stability and benefits

Traditional dentures are a great way to replace a complete arch of missing teeth. Unfortunately, they do come with some disadvantages, such as shifting. If you are tired of messy dental adhesive and tired of the denture frustrations, the team at New Leaf Rohnert Park has the solution with overdentures. This removable dental prosthesis is similar to your traditional denture but secured into place, so you can say goodbye to adhesives and slippage. To learn more about overdentures, click below.

What Are Overdentures?

Overdentures are similar to traditional dentures but with a slight difference. Instead of using adhesives to hold your denture in place, overdentures attach to a remaining natural tooth or an implant-supported system to stabilize the denture, similar to a traditional bridge. The overdenture locks on to the natural tooth or implant screw and clicks into place.

In addition to making your denture more secure, the use of a natural stabilizing tooth or surgically implanted rods helps to reduce the typical bone loss in the jawbone seen after tooth loss.

At the end of the day, you simply snap your overdenture off the stabilizing locations and soak overnight, in the same way you do your traditional dentures.

Benefits of Overdentures

If you have lost your teeth, whether on the upper or lower arch, you know how tooth loss can affect your speech, smile and ability to eat. While traditional dentures can help, they often become loose and uncomfortable. Over time, you will also see changes in your face as bone loss occurs in your jawbone. Overdentures offer solutions to these problems and the benefits of overdentures include:
N

Greater Comfort and Fit – Because an overdenture is secured into place, you don’t have to worry about slippage.

N
Eat Like You Used To – Eating with regular dentures can be difficult and problematic. Chewing can loosen your denture and biting into something can be enough to pull out your denture. Because overdentures are secured into your mouth, you are able to bite and chew more effectively, helping to also improve your digestion and nutrition absorption.
N
No More Messing Adhesives – Because overdentures secure to implants in your jaw, you can say goodbye to messy adhesives.
N
Reduced Bone Loss – The roots of your teeth are what support bone stability in the jaw. When you lose your teeth, the bone tissue in the jaw begins to atrophy, often contributing to changes in facial features. Dental implants used to secure your overdenture bond with the jawbone and promote bone growth and stability.
