How is an Overdenture Different Than a Traditional Denture?
Posted on 1/25/2020 by Dr. Chapko
When considering dentures, you might have seen the term “overdenture” somewhere. While an overdenture is different than a more traditional denture, most people are unaware of this. So here is some information on these dental constructions to help you decide which one is best for you. Traditional DenturesWhen most people hear the word “denture” they immediately think of more traditional dentures. These are constructions that fit over the gum tissue and mimic a set of natural teeth. These are the devices that you might have seen your grandparents using. Traditional dentures can be a bit of a challenge to get used to. They have to be carefully cleaned each day in order to minimize the chance of infection or other issues. They can be painful to wear, especially for those who have never worn them. And they sometimes lead to problems speaking and even eating correctly. OverdenturesOverdentures are different. They tend to be smaller than traditional dentures. Usually an overdenture has some pink tissue that looks like gum tissue. Affixed to this tissue is a set of prosthetic teeth. The device attaches to the gum using a set of dental implants. They snap onto the implants until you are ready to remove them, then they snap off. Overdentures have the advantage of being more stable than traditional dentures. Because they are affixed to dental implants, they are less likely to slide around than dentures that rely on adhesive paste to stay in place. They are also more natural looking, and many people find them easier to adapt to. If you have questions about dentures, overdentures, or anything else relating to your oral health, please reach out to us.
