Implant Supported OverdentureAn Implant Supported Overdenture is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Standard dentures are unsecured prostheses with inherent limitations. Most often dentures are painful, inconvenient and unstable. This can make chewing food difficult sometimes limiting the kind of food that you are able to eat and perhaps you once enjoyed. Modern dentistry can help with implant supported dentures. The Implant Supported Overdenture replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by dental implants. Implant supported overdentures stay connected with a bar and clip type attachment methods or use a variety of abutment-based attachments (ball, magnets and resilient stud attachments called Locators). The most appropriate attachment system for your individual needs relates to a variety of factors that is determined early in the treatment .Typically, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day of surgery. The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your dentist will place the final bridge. Your quality of life is improved and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence.
