Removable Implant-Retained Dentures

Overdentures
Enjoy affordable, pain-free implant Overdentures, which are replacement teeth retained by dental implants.

For years denture wearers have suffered from loose and uncomfortable dentures. Most patients we see with dentures have to wear dental adhesives under their dentures to keep them from coming loose or falling out. Now there is a simple and reliable way to keep your teeth “In Place”! This revolutionary system uses narrow diameter dental implants to hold reinforced overdentures in place so you can laugh with confidence and chew worry free. Schedule your appointment today and Dr. Lomartire can help you decide if overdentures are right for you.

About Overdentures

What are the benefits of Overdentures?

Overdentures are ideal for those seeking more affordable ways to replace missing teeth. Dr. Lomartire can also repair and secure loose dentures that have made it harder to speak, eat or smile with confidence. Conventional dentures typically fit over the gums and an upper denture may provide some suction by using the palate. But a lower denture is almost always a nightmare to eat with and tends to flop around. Overdentures allow the doctor to “snap” your teeth in and also by reinforcing the appliances with a hidden metal reinforcement it can make them less bulky and cumbersome. Top overdentures can have the palate removed which allows you to again taste all different types of food and enjoy your meals. Overdentures can also provide you with a more youthful appearance and suppor the structure of the face.
Provide you with a more youthful appearance
Promotes better digestion because your teeth are more stable and allows you to chew food more thoroughly, helping your stomach break down food more efficiently, and absorb more nutrients
Feel more comfortable and fit more securely than dentures held in with only adhesives

What is the process for getting Overdentures?

You will undergo a consultation to see whether overdentures are right for you. If you already wear dentures, the process takes very little time and in one visit all of the dental implants can be placed. Dr. Lomartire typically allows 12 weeks for healing of the Locator® dental implants before finishing your overdentures or modifying your existing dentures. After you have been fitted for the overdenture, you will be taught how to take care of them and set up on our hygiene protocol so they will last longer and be more reliable. Eating and speaking general improve tremendously when your overdentures are fixed in place. 

Who typically gets Overdentures?

Overdentures are more widely accepted by patients that have worn removable appliances like dental partials and dentures in the past. This new technology is the perfect step for someone who is on a strict budget but wants to be able to be confident that their teeth will not embarrass them or make them uncomfortable when eating. 
Overdentures

Overdentures are replacement teeth retained by dental implants. Overdentures were developed to help both partial and fully edentulous patients regain a quality of life, which most likely has been missing since they lost their teeth.
