Different from both traditional dentures and dentures over implants, overdentures can use root posts over your own tooth roots and caps to hold your new dentures in place. If you have lost your natural roots, an oral surgeon can install a dental attachment instead. The overdentures have better anchor strength, improved function and long-term health benefits.
We invite you to our denture clinic in Little Current or Espanola for a free consultation. Overdentures may be an appropriate approach if your natural tooth roots are still intact.
Unlike traditional dentures that use suction to stay in place, overdentures have stable retention in your upper and lower jaw that can offer these benefits:
Better digestion because of more thorough chewing
Stimulates the jawbone and slows bone loss
Reduces the sinking or shrinking of facial features
More comfort for both the upper and lower jaw
Fewer problems with gum irritation and sores
