Even though dentures are a useful restoration, some people find them to be uncomfortable. They can slide, cause sores, and overall just feel unbearable. At Lake Park Dental, we have a great alternative to dentures in the form of implant-retained overdentures that will provide much more comfort.
Rather than being held in place by a messy, sticky substance, implant-retained overdentures are secured by dental implants. This locks them firmly in place, preventing the possibility of sliding. These overdentures can be either removable or fixed.
If you are without most or all your teeth, you will need some type of full-mouth restoration to prevent issues such as bone loss or facial sagging. If you are looking for an option that will leave you with natural-looking teeth that will help maintain good oral health, implant-retained overdentures may be the perfect fit.
Before we place the dental implants, we’ll examine the status of your mouth to ensure your jawbone is strong enough to support them. If not, bone grafting is a possible option.
