Who Needs to Look into Overdentures?

Posted on 7/20/2019 by Dr. Shiotsu
Who Needs to Look into Overdentures?Overdentures are a mouth device that are overlooked more often than not. They can be helpful when a patient has an under-stimulated jaw or when they want something more permanent than dentures that slip in and out of the mouth.

They are much like dentures, except they do not come out of the mouth. They can be left in the mouth at all times, so you never have to worry about them slipping out of place. This is important when it comes to smiling and talking, while also being confident when you do either.

Who are Overdentures Good For?

Overdentures are good for those that require dentures. Anyone that needs to have dentures on either the top or the bottom arch, or both of their arches can look into this option. It is one that provides them with the smile that they want, that doesn't slip out of place, and that can help them retain their facial structure and features.

Those that have missing teeth are missing out on being able to chew their food and digest it properly. This causes problems with the digestive tract that you wouldn't have if you had a good set of teeth, whether permanent or temporary. Overdentures can help with this. They can provide more comfort to you, the patient, which is one of the biggest reasons why we recommend overdentures rather than those that move in the mouth. Comfort is a must.

Speak with our professionals here to find out how overdentures might be the best dental procedure for you to go through with. If you're missing teeth and you want to smile better than ever, this might be the best way to go about doing so. Smile with confidence, laugh with ease and make the most of our dental professionals when you give us a call and make an appointment to come out and see us.
