Implant Supported Dentures In Stockton

What Is an Implant-Supported Overdenture?

Dental implants are a popular option for those patients with broken or missing teeth. Implant therapy is often prescribed to these individuals to help them have a more complete smile. Overdentures are replacement teeth that are retained by the patient’s dental implants. They can be developed for patients with just a few teeth, or even all teeth, missing to help them regain their confidence and a better quality of life. With the help of Dr. Stephen Nozaki, you can find out whether this is your best option for quality oral health.

There are two types of implant-supported overdenture treatments. With the bar-retained treatment, the overdenture engages the retentive attachments on a metal bar. This metal bar connects to a patient’s implants, placed onto the upper and/or lower jaw, and the overdenture is therefore removable. The overdenture is secured through attached that are fabricated directly into the denture. With a fixed, implant-supported overdenture, the overdenture and the bar are a one-piece framework. This framework is secured using screws to the implants placed onto the upper and/or lower jaw, and it is only removable by your dentist. This treatment is the closest a patient can get to having natural teeth.

There is also an implant-retained, sum supported type of overdenture treatment. With this treatment, the overdenture will rest directly on your gums, retained by the implants placed into your upper or lower jaw. This overdenture is removable and secured to your implants through retentive attachments incorporated into the denture. Regardless of the type of treatment, there are several benefits of using overdentures to replace missing teeth.

  • Promotes Better Digestion
  • Slows Bone Loss by Stimulating the Bone in Your Jaw
  • Helps Retain Your Facial Features and Structure
  • More Comfortable
  • Increased Confidence

If you are interested in implant-supported overdenture treatment, schedule an appointment today with Dr. Nozaki to discuss your personal situation. Once you’ve undergone an examination, he is able to explain why these treatments may be best for you.

Missing Teeth? You Have Options!

Feeling as if your smile is incomplete is tough to deal with it, and it makes it even be painful. Losing a tooth, or multiple teeth, is not only devastating to one’s confidence, but it can hinder your ability to speak or eat well. There are a variety of reasons that you may lose teeth as an adult:

  • Tooth Decay
  • Advancing Gum Disease
  • Trauma/Accident
  • Root Canal Failure
  • Excessive Wear
  • Congenital Effects

Regardless of the reason for lost teeth, the qualified dentists at Image Dental are not here to judge. We are here to help you solve the problem, complete your smile, and get your confidence back. Because there are patients who can walk in and out within hours and find their problems solved, it is important that you meet with Dr. Nozaki to discuss your individual needs and whether an implant-supported overdenture treatment or something else, is best for you.

Are There Alternatives to Dental Implants and Implant-Supported Overdenture?

Because there are alternatives to dental implants and implant-supported overdenture, this initial consultation is crucial. More than simply selling a patient on an implant-supported overdenture treatment, we want to make sure they are best for you and your situation. One of the most common solutions to missing teeth is dentures. Dentures are a set of false teeth that are held with dental adhesive and can be just a few teeth or more. However, they sometimes slip and make eating and speaking difficult or uncomfortable for the patient.

A patient may choose to undergo bridgework is a natural looking smile isn’t as important. A bridge is placed between two healthy teeth and its primary purpose is to keep these teeth in place and keep them from growing together. However, good bridgework lasts 10 to 15 years while an implant-supported overdenture may last over 25 years when installed properly. One prominent downside, of course, is that they do not look like natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Overdenture: Is This Treatment Right For You?

Because there are a few different implant-supported overdenture treatments, it is important for you to meet with Dr. Nozaki and speak with him about your individual situations.

Generally, if a patient is healthy enough to undergo a tooth extraction, they can undergo a two-implant overdenture treatment. It can often be completed in one visit, but there are pre-planning and careful assessment necessary to ensure a safe and successful surgical procedure – and a brand new smile for you.
