Over Dentures

Denture is a conventional method of restoring patients who have lost all their maxillary or mandibular teeth. Although this treatment may enhance esthetics and offers some improvement in function, it is inadequate for many patients. Chewing efficiency is drastically reduced. Plastic on the palate can be invasive, diminish the ability to taste food, and trigger a gagging sensation. Lower dentures are often uncomfortable and loose-fitting, and in many cases move freely about the mouth.

Fortunately, dental implants can be predictably placed to support an overdenture, providing retention, added stability and an affordable alternative to conventional dentures. Compared to traditional complete dentures, implant-retained prostheses excel in producing the bite force needed for effective chewing. In addition to improved speech and dental function, implant overdentures have been shown to dramatically increase social confidence, comfort and emotional well-being. This prosthetic stability afforded by implant overdentures elicits a positive psychological response and an improved quality of life.

Over Dentures Treatment

Following tooth loss, the bone regresses both horizontally and vertically. As these bone changes occur overtime , prosthetic support and stability decreases. Further, as bone resorption worsens, support for the mouth and face is compromised . The effect this can have on facial esthetics and self-esteem is difficult to overstate. By providing the edentulous ridge with continued stimulation, dental implants mitigate the bone loss that occurs in the absence of teeth.

Our team at Woodside Dental Care will provide you with a comprehensive plan to bring you back function and quality of life.

“Everyone in the office was incredibly kind and helpful during my visit today! I unexpectedly needed to get two fillings and the Doctor made it a priority to fit me into her already busy schedule and I didn’t even need to wait. Everyone from the hygenists to receptionist staff was kind and answered all my questions to make sure I was comfortable throughout my visit. I am so happy I found Woodside Dental Care, thank you!”

To Carla thank you so much for explaining me everything and made me feel like I’m just talking to a friend instead of being a patient. Thank you guys again!!”

“Very caring and knowledgeable doctors and staff. They have a beautiful office and state of the art equipment. Unlike other general dental practices, they can do most procedures in house, so you don’t have to be sent to another office. Really nice people and they make you feel at home, and well taken care of! :)”

“It was a very refreshing experience to visit a dentist office that actually takes the time for each of their patients. Dr. Melvin Velasquez & his staff are amazing!
Today I got my second-time Zoom Whitening with Karla & Paola were awesome, they really did a great job & took care of me every minute during the process. I came out with a bright smile. This Dentist office is always extremely clean & they are up to date with their technology and equipment. Highly recommended.”
