Implant Supported Overdentures in Thunder Bay
In the past, when a person needed to replace all of their teeth on the upper or lower gums or both areas, there only option was complete denture plates. Today, that is no longer the case and people have a few other teeth replacement options to help restore their appearance and provide them with a beautiful looking appearance and smile.
Here at Oasis Family Dental, we are pleased to provide our patients with implant supported overdentures as a teeth replacement option. This type of denture plate provides several benefits over traditional denture plates, including:
- Securely held in place to allow you to eat most foods.
- Implant supported overdentures never slip or come loose.
- You do not have to worry about food getting underneath the plates and causing discomfort.
- Have a lower cost compared to entire sets of dental implants.
The procedure to get implant supported overdentures begins with a consultation with one of our dentists in Thunder Bay in our office. Next, titanium posts are installed in several locations to act as anchors to secure the dentures in place. Most patients leave with a temporary denture plate in place, while their actual plate is being custom made, which will be fitted and installed once their gums have fully healed.
