A conventional denture that snaps into dental implants is often referred to as an overdenture. Overdentures can be life changing for denture patients that have loose or floppy dentures. As few as two lower implants can lead to an incredible increase in chewing ability. For patients that are tired of using goopy denture paste to hold their lower denture in, two lower implants offer the ability to get rid of denture paste and eat many of the foods that they couldn't previously. With an increase in the number of dental implants comes an increase in the amount of retention offered by the overdenture. If patients desire chewing ability more similar to natural teeth, four implants in the lower jaw and six implants in the upper jaw can offer this amount of chewing function. Every case is unique, so the best place to start is with a free denture consultation.
