Overdentures Treatment

Overdentures Treatment in Mumbai

Nobody will argue that your teeth are one of the most important part of the human body. They help us eat and digest food, they make our smile attractive and they keep the face and neck muscles strong and also help prevent untimely wrinkles.  Teeth are not the only thing that keep your smile in top shape, the bones that support them also play an important role. If you have lost any teeth in your upper and lower jaw then it calls for an immediate treatment because ignoring lost tooth can causes loss of bone, infection in nearby teeth and further decay.

If you too have been bothered by the loss of teeth then overdentures are the perfect rescue option. Overdentures are a type of implant that are suitable for edentulous or partially edentulous mouth. A missing tooth is not just a cosmetic problem but not getting it treated can causes some serious impact on one’s oral health and not to mention some serious psychological effects.

Overdentures are an advanced version of traditional dentures because they don’t slip when talking or eating. With good quality overdentures in place, you don’t have to worry about slippage at any point. At The Esthetic Clinics, Mumbai we offer the best options for over dentures.

What are Overdentures?

Overdentures are also known as implant retained dentures and they attach themselves to the dental implants. Overdentures can also be supported by natural tooth if the bone is strong enough. Top dentists in Mumbai will do an oral examination to gauge which overdenture treatment will work the best for you.

When you have been missing the teeth for a very long time, the bone shrinks and there is not enough space to place a denture. In such cases the stability and retention of the conventional dentures are not stable enough and cause difficult in chewing and swallowing. Overdenture treatments in Mumbai helps overcome this problem by giving a stable anchor to the denture with the help of natural teeth or a specialized implant.

  • Strong and dense jaw bone, that is capable of supporting the implant.
