If you are missing teeth and are not a suitable candidate for dental implants owing to bone degradation or loss, you may want to consider having dentures. However, if dentures are not your cup of tea, another alternative bridges the gap between dentures and dental implants: overdentures. Overdentures are removable implant-supported dentures that are attached to dental implants. Find out what these ingenious prostheses are and a suitable candidate for them in this informative article. Omni Dental in McMurray will provide overdentures for you at a reasonable price.
What Exactly Are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial teeth put in a natural-looking material that replicates the appearance of the gums. No one can tell that dentures are not "genuine" teeth since they are specially manufactured for each patient to appear precisely like their own set of natural teeth. Dentures are placed on top of the natural gums and are held using adhesives such as denture paste. Because these adhesives are detachable, the patient may remove their dentures for cleaning at the end of the day.
It is necessary to clean dentures by immersing them in a denture rinse solution and brushing them with a regular toothbrush and denture cleaning paste, just as you would natural teeth.
What Are Overdentures and How Do They Work?
You may have never heard the phrase "overdentures" until today - even though these advanced prosthodontics have been around for a long time, they are not generally recognized by the general public. An overdenture is quite the same as a standard denture in that it is designed to seem like a person's natural teeth and gums, rather than artificial teeth and gums. Furthermore, since overdentures are attached to the jaw bone with hooks, they remain in position and do not move about while you speak or eat.
Overdentures may be readily removed when necessary since they are just temporarily attached to the hooks and are not permanently attached to the teeth. They are the best of all worlds when it comes to dentures and implants in that they are permanent enough to remain in place yet removable enough to be cleaned when necessary.
Doctor Hanlon will be with you from beginning to end, from the placement of essential dental implants through the delivery of your final prosthetic device. Overdentures are a game-changer for those who are experiencing denture movement issues.
