Overdentures

 

Overdentures offer prosthesis retention for the patient suffering from retention problems with the typical complete denture, particularly those patients with advanced ridge resorption. Overdentures obtain their support from two or more abutments by completely enveloping them beneath the fitting surface. (The use of only one abutment is not recommended.) Overdentures offer these patients greatly improved retention and stability. The overdenture attachment can be placed in tooth roots that have been saved, or torqued into dental implants which have been placed to receive them.

Please refer to the Root Cap Abutments, Stud & Bar Attachments, and Mini Dental Implants (MDI) pages of our website for more information regarding the different types of overdenture attachments.
