Dental Implant Overdentures
Dental implant overdentures help patients with dentures to gain comfort, chewing ability, and confidence by securing their denture with implants.
Implants are a great solution for patients for loose dentures. Attachments are placed inside the dentures which can snap into the implants to provide better stability and anchorage for chewing, talking, and everyday use. The denture can still be taken out by the patient for cleaning purposes.
Generally a minimum of two implants (or posts) are required to stabilize a lower denture, and a minimum of four implants are used on the upper. Dental implants are made up of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body, and can last a lifetime if properly cared for.
In some cases patients do not need a new denture, and their existing dentures can be converted into implant overdentures. If you are having problems with your existing dentures, need new dentures, or are curious about dental implants to stabilize your dentures, set up a free implant consultation with Dr. Safer at our Taunton office.
