care has improved considerably over the past few decades, many people have lost
all their teeth or are facing complete tooth loss. This might be due to advanced
periodontal disease or some other trauma. Whatever the reason, teeth are
necessary to help us eat and talk, and of course for appearance, and complete
tooth loss is a serious problem.
dentures have been used for more than a hundred years and are often the first
choice of tooth replacement. People who have lost all their upper teeth can
often comfortably cope with an upper denture, as it completely covers up the
upper palate which gives it pretty good retention. However it can be a struggle
to eat comfortably with a full lower denture due to its tendency to slip and
shift out of position. In the past there may have been a little option but to
put up with ill-fitting lower dentures. Although it is possible to remake them
and reline them to get them to fit a bit better, the main reason why they begin
to shift position is due to bone loss.
How a Removable Implant Overdenture Can Help Lower
are a great solution but conventional implant treatment often requires the use
of multiple dental implants to secure a lower denture. This is all very well,
but it can mean treatment is prohibitively expensive for some people. This is
where an implant overdenture can help. It is a denture that looks just like an
ordinary denture, but it has special fittings on the surface closest to your
gums that will clip onto dental implants. Over the past 20 years there have
been numerous scientific studies carried out into the benefits of having an
implant overdenture that is secured by just two dental implants. The results of
these studies show that often an implant overdenture should be the first choice
of treatment compared to a conventional denture.
With an implant
overdenture, bone loss around the dental implants is halted. In fact the stimulation
provided by the implant posts helps to keep the surrounding bone strong and
healthy, preventing any more bone resorption. Patients can benefit from a
denture that is stable and will not shift position. This makes it easier to
eat, potentially promoting better general health due to better nutrition. Then
there are the psychological benefits of having teeth that look and feel good.
Who Should Consider Having an Implant Overdenture?
If you have lost
all your lower teeth or are facing tooth loss, it’s worth booking an
appointment with a periodontist nyc. The
periodontists are highly experienced in planning and placing dental implants
and will carry out a detailed assessment to see if this treatment is the most
suitable option for you. Generally, it’s best for people who have reasonable
dental and general health and this is much more important than age. Other
factors that must be taken into consideration include any medications currently
being used and whether this treatment will provide the results that you desire.
overdentures are just one form of dental implant treatment that could be
helpful. If this solution isn’t quite right for you, our periodontists can
suggest something more appropriate.
