A new denture study based out of Toronto has the potential to revolutionize dental implants by increasing stability, retention and comfort. Overdentures refer to dentures which rest on your gums and are secured using implants in your lower jawbone. Overdentures are removable, and are secured to the implants using special attachments located on the underside of the dentures. They more closely resemble standard dentures in the sense that the teeth are secured to a full plate, not implanted individually. However, Implant Overdentures are much more secure than standard dentures because the titanium anchors in your lower jawbone and over time becomes fully integrated with the bone, acting very much like a natural tooth root. This integration makes the Implant Overdentures more secure than standard dentures, which rely on suction to keep them in place.

What are the benefits of Implant Overdentures?

  1. Promote better digestion
    By increasing stability through the use of implants you are able to thoroughly chew your food, which in turn makes it easier for your stomach to digest it. This also leads to an increased intake of nutrients, which improves your overall health.

  2. Slows bone loss
    The jawbone requires stimulation in order to slow or reduce bone loss. Standard dentures are divorced from your jawbone, so the jawbone is not stimulated by chewing. However, Implant Overdentures are anchored directly to your jawbone, so when you chew you continue to use your jawbone and help to keep it strong.

Tooth loss can be embarrassing, and while standard dentures can be a solution they are not as secure as Implant Overdentures. If you are constantly worried about what foods you can eat, or whether the suction will fail on your dentures you are not able to relax and enjoy life. Implant Dentures can return your beautiful smile to you, so show it off with confidence.
