How Overdentures Work

Overdentures use strategically-placed implants to hold them in place throughout the day. In most cases, a minimum of two titanium anchors are used on the lower jaw and four for the upper jaw.

The process of installing titanium anchors is similar to getting dental implants. However, in this case, the overdentures are used when someone is missing most or all of their teeth.

Unlike traditional dentures that rest directly on your gums, overdentures clip onto the stabilising implants, which hold them in place all day.

How Are Overdentures Made?

Step 1: Consultation

Getting overdentures begins with a consultation where we visually assess your mouth and determine if you’re a candidate for the procedure.

Step 2: 3D Scan

Next, we send for a 3D scan of your mouth and create a surgical guide for the dental implants.

Step 3: Anchor Installation

After your surgical guide is ready, we place the titanium implant anchors and allow them to heal so that each one closely fuses with the bone surrounding it.

Step 4: Delivery of Your Overdenture

Finally, we attach the overdenture to your implants, providing stability and full function. Although overdentures look like traditional dentures, they have special locators underneath the plate, which snap onto the corresponding titanium anchors.

We’ll also provide you with careful instructions on how to maintain and clean your overdenture each day so that it lasts as long as possible.
