Implant Overdentures

implant-overdenturesAn implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums.An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants. Your implant-supported denture will be more stable than a regular denture. You will find it easier to speak and you won’t have to worry about the denture becoming loose or falling out of your mouth.

You generally will be able to eat foods you could not eat before. The use of implant supported denture eliminates the use of denture adhesives entirely.  Sometimes your existing dentures can also be modified to fit in these implants and attachments thus making them retentive and comfortable.
Please come in for a free consultation with Dr. Singh or Dr. Trikha to find out the best possible treatment suiting you.
