While complete dentures rely on adhesives to hold them in place over the gums, “overdentures” are anchored to dental implants that are firmly embedded in the underlying bone. Overdentures are more stable than dentures that require adhesives, which leads to improved biting and chewing. In addition, the use of dental implants to hold overdentures in place stimulates the upper and lower jaw bones so that they will not shrink due to bone resorption. This effect helps avoid the “aging look” that may otherwise appear when the lower face takes on a “shrunken” appearance. All these advantages combine to provide a better fit that will both minimize gum sores and require less maintenance.
