Bellflower Implant Supported Overdenture
An implant supported overdenture is a revolutionary restoration procedure designed to help surgeons and dentists replace a full set of teeth. Standard dentures tend to be unsecured prostheses with some inherent limitations. Dentures tend to be painful, unstable, and frequently inconvenient for their wearers. Such dentures make chewing food difficult, which limits your diet and can leave you missing out on your favorite foods.
Now, modern dentistry has developed implant supported dentures which replaces missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by high quality dental implants. Fewer implants are needed, while the overall cost and time of the treatment is significantly reduced. An implant supported overdenture also ensures there is better stability in the bone, reducing the need for potential bone graft surgery to repair missing bone in the mouth.
Implant supported overdentures stay connected in the mouth through the implementation of bar and clip attachment methods or similar abutment-based features like balls, magnets, and resilient studs. The most appropriate attachment system for you will depend on your individual needs and when you start treatment. Typically, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the day of surgery, so you can lead a normal life right after. After a short healing period, your dentist can then place the final bridge so you can enjoy your favorite foods again and get back to your life.
Implant Supported Overdentures offer you many advantages:
- A cost effective solution. When compared to some other implant supported restoration methods, your new replacement teeth require fewer implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is lowered.
- Reduced need for bone grafting. The special angled placement of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, often making bone grafting unnecessary.
- Faster treatment and healing time. Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion.
Implant Supported Overdentures have had good clinical outcomes from decade long studies with favorable results, making these an excellent option for individuals who worry about the health and longevity of dentures and other implants.
