OVER DENTURES

Over dentures in south eastern Melbourne


IS YOUR DENTURE LOOSE?

A traditional denture can be supported with implants. An over denture is a great solution for someone that already has dentures.

A secure denture provides freedom from clicking and unwanted movements of dentures, but without glue or denture adhesives.

Dental implants will allow you to secure your denture to speak and eat with confidence.

A removable over denture has implants under the denture. It can replace lost gum and bone and can vastly improve facial appearance. The cost of an over denture is usually a cheaper option as it can often be added to an existing denture. 
  • We can provide various solutions to over dentures such as

ADVANTAGES OF OVER DENTURES

1
Promotes better digestion

Removable dentures can move around in your mouth, reducing your ability to eat certain foods. Improved stability in over dentures allows you to chew food more thoroughly, helping your stomach break down food more efficiently and absorb more nutrients.
2
Maintains bone health

Implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep your bone healthy and intact. Dental implants will continue to stimulate your jawbone when you eat/chew, reducing the resorption (shrinkage) process that occurs when teeth are missing. Dental implants, like natural teeth, support the sinus floor level and prevents the sinus dropping into the oral cavity space.
3
Provides improved lip and cheek support and maintains your facial features and structure

Missing teeth and unstable dentures cause the jawbone to be under functioning and under loaded when chewing, resulting in bone resorption. This gradual loss in bone volume results in loss of facial height, causing the distance between your nose and your chin to shrink. This shrinking can make your face look sunken-in and prematurely aged.
4
Greater comfort and chewing ability

Over dentures reduce unnecessary movement during chewing and talking. Dental implants also preserve the bone so the nerves are maintained where they are. Gradual bone resorption from reduced function causes the nerves to lie above the jawbone, resulting in impingement from the dentures and causing pain.
