Implants Supported Overdentures
An overdenture is utilized for patients who still have some of the natural teeth intact. The natural teeth that remain in the mouth will be used to anchor the denture in place. This is usually done by removing the nerve in the tooth via a root canal (to reduce sensitivity) and then by placing a metal casting over the tooth that fits neatly into the overdenture.
Today's standard of care for restoring edentulous arches consists of two to four implants in the lower arch and four-six implants supporting complete dentures or known as overdentures.
Dr. Jackson can fabricate Locator supported complete dentures or implant bar supported overdentures.
