What is an implant supported overdenture?
Dentures get loosened over a period of time as the jaw bone shrinks continuously after loss of teeth.
Implants placed at ideal positions can offer support to the dentures making them stable thereby reducing the discomfort of moving dentures.
About 2-4 implants are needed in each arch to support the dentures. Abutments are fixed over the implants. Base of the dentures are modified to be fitted over these abutments thereby holding the implant firmly over the jaw
Implant supported dentures can offer high comfort for patients who have suffered with loose fitting dentures.
