Have you been considering dentures or implants? Perhaps you have a number of missing teeth and need dental restorations. Overdentures could be the solution to your smile woes. Cunning Dental Group has more than 52 years of experience in general and cosmetic dentistry, having served thousands of patients in Montclair, Irvine, and throughout California. Our founder, Ronald Cunning D.D.S., built our practice on the experience of highly trained staff and the latest advancements in dental technology, allowing us to give everyone in need of overdentures the best experience.
Overdentures integrate prosthetic dentures with dental implant technology. They offer you all the benefits of dentures in addition to the quality and ease of dental implants.
Generally, implant-supported overdentures are similar to conventional dentures. These prosthetics include an acrylic base that resembles your natural gums. Our dentist will mount natural looking teeth to the gum colored acrylic base, mirroring your original teeth and acting as a replacement for your missing teeth. The difference, you ask? Unlike regular dentures that sit on your gums and usually require a special adhesive to remain intact, overdentures in Montclair, CA use implanted bases to secure the denture in your mouth. That’s right—no more slipping and sliding dentures!
From superior long-term results to improved quality of life, here’s why you should opt for overdentures in Irvine, CA:
If you are one of the 40 million Americans with missing teeth in one or both jaws, here are the types of prosthetics available at our practice:
Implant-secured overdentures are modern restorations that have revolutionized the way Cunning Dental Group restores a complete set of teeth. Traditional, regular dentures not only have a tendency to fall out and cause embarrassment, but they also come with inherent limitations. For instance, some dentures can cause discomfort when chewing and talking, restricting your diet and preventing you from speaking confidently.
Overdentures are far more secure and reliable than standard dentures. Since the prosthetic devices are attached or placed over an implant, you do not have to worry about dentures slipping and sliding. Overdentures also help prevent bone loss associated with traditional dentures, as they preserve the bone in the mouth by providing the stimulation your jawbone needs.
You might be a suitable candidate for overdentures if:
Implant-secured overdentures are low maintenance, requiring only occasional cleaning and a biannual or annual replacement of attachments. In between visits to our local dental office, you only have the responsibility of brushing for day-to-day upkeep.
If you have detachable prosthetics, ensure to remove them each evening. Occasionally, you may soak your overdentures for a few minutes in an approved denture cleaning solution.
Maintaining your gorgeous new smile is that quick and simple.
Missing teeth can be embarrassing, causing you to hide your smile and lose your self-confidence.
