Implant Supported Overdenture In Deerfield, IL.

An Implant Supported Overdenture is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Standard dentures are unsecured prostheses with inherent limitations. Often times, dentures can lack stability and retention.  This is most common with the lower, or mandibular, dentures due to the surrounding muscles, tongue and ridge supporting the denture.  Such dentures can make chewing foods difficult, limiting the foods that you once enjoyed.

The Implant Supported Overdenture treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental prostheses supported by dental implants. These implants address the stability and retention concerns associated with traditional dentures. This treatment also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume.  Implant Supported Overdentures stay connected to the dental implants with bar and clip attachment methods or use a variety of abutment-based attachments (ball, magnets, and resilient stud attachments). At Burns Family Dentistry, we’ll discuss the most appropriate attachment system for your needs early in the treatment.

While a short period of healing time is necessary following implant placement, a temporary set of teeth can usually be placed on the same day of surgery. The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your dentist will attach the final bridge. Your quality of life is improved, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence.
Implant Supported Overdentures Offer You Many Advantages:

-- When compared to other implant supported restoration methods, your new replacement teeth require fewer implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is less.
Reduced Need for Bone Grafting -- The special angled placement of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, often making bone grafting unnecessary.
Faster Treatment & Healing Time -- Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion.
