Installation of Full Arch Implants with Overdentures
Implant Supported Dentures
Implants allow you to wear full dentures and partial dentures without worrying about slipping or falling out while eating or speaking. By having implants to support these dentures, the base of the denture can be made much smaller and more comfortable. For overdentures, screws will be placed in the jaw to serve as a foundation then can be attached with a metal bar, which will help support a removable denture.

Step 1: The dentist determines what needs to be done and prepares for the treatment procedure.
Step 2: The dentist installs dental implants to replace the lost tooth roots. In this case, two implants are installed. Four implants may be placed in case for added overdenture retention. Temporary dentures may be worn enabling you to eat and function like your natural teeth while waiting for the permanent overdenture to be installed.
Step 3: The dentist attaches a ball or bar on top of the implants and installs the overdentures over. The ball or bar acts as a clip enabling the overdentures to snap securely in place.
Step 4: The dentist clips the removable overdentures securely on top of the implant with the ball/bar. This gives the strength, stability and allows you to have an easier life comparing to conventional dentures.
