Overdentures are the appliances that hold dentures in place. It helps in attaching the denture in the mouth to the remaining nearby teeth or dental implant. Dentures are customized according to the structure of the mouth and jawbones. Missing teeth can wear them off, which means there can be a change in shape and size. With overdentures, the dentures would never ill-fit into the mouth and would grip tightly over time.

Benefits of overdentures

Overdentures are basically supported by canine teeth and can be done for both upper and lower jaws. In case you have missing canine teeth then you can opt for implant-supported overdentures. They are connected with a metal bar with an attachment that fits into the overdenture. Some of the benefits of overdenture are:

  • They help in reducing the shrinkage of jawbones
  • They redirect the pressure in the mouth helping the denture to be stable
  • For certain dental conditions like oligodontia, overdentures prove to be really helpful
  • Being made from acrylic, they help in preserving the surrounding bones and hence helps in retaining aesthetics.
