When most or all teeth need to be replaced, it is common to use dentures as complete replacements in order to maintain smile appearance and function. At the Dental Implant Center, we offer multiple options for patients who require dentures, including effective and convenient implant overdentures.
With convenient locations to serve Colleyville, Dallas, and surrounding areas, the Dental Implant Center is led by Dr. David McFadden and Dr. Steven Branberg. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out if you are a candidate for implant overdentures to look and function like your natural teeth without having to be self-conscious about functionality.
What are Implant Overdentures?
Patients who require dentures often worry about their teeth slipping, becoming loose, or falling out while performing normal activities like talking and eating. There are many denture adhesives and creams on the market today to help secure these dental prosthetics to your mouth, but many of these fall short in providing a confident grip that lasts throughout the day. Implant overdentures at the Dental Implant Center can help.
As standalone treatments, both dental implants and dentures can effectively replace missing teeth, but these two procedures can also be combined to provide maximum comfort and convenience to patients.
How Do Implant Overdentures Work?
This is a multi-step treatment process:
- Biocompatible titanium screws will be placed into the jaw and left to adhere to the jaw bone for a few to several months in order to provide a secure foundation for your overdentures.
- A customized set of overdentures will be created for you to comfortably fit your mouth and replicate the shape and color of a natural set of teeth
- The overdentures will be attached to the implants and fixed into place for a secure, non-slip fit and worry-free teeth.
Am I a Good Candidate for Implant Overdentures?
The best way to find out if you are a candidate for this treatment is to schedule a consultation with either Dr. McFadden or Dr. Branberg at either of our locations in Colleyville or Dallas. Using advanced imaging and diagnostics, we will thoroughly examine your individual condition and help you determine whether implant overdentures can provide optimal results for you.
