What is an implant bar overdenture?
Many of us are probably familiar with the idea of dentures. These are removable teeth that are usually created out of acrylic and designed to look like natural teeth. They then fit over your gums. There is usually nothing really holding dentures in place when we’re talking about the traditional design. Instead, they are supposed to be held in place using suction created from the dentures and your gums. As you can imagine, this is not necessarily the most effective option out there. In fact, sometimes this kind of denture can even make it harder to talk and to eat!
Instead of the traditional denture, an implant bar overdenture is a denture that is designed to feel and work like a real tooth. They are held in place securely, in other words, and are not prone to sliding off. That’s because the use of dental implants helps ensure that your dentures are firmly anchored exactly where they need to be, and aren’t going to suddenly slide off of your gums at the most inopportune times. An implant bar is essentially a denture bar that is designed to have dentures fitted over it.
Why should I opt for overdentures?
If you want to maintain your ability to eat and speak well, then a good rule of thumb is to consider implants. These are one of the most natural and effective forms of tooth replacement out there. With that said, not everyone is necessarily a great candidate for implants right away. Sometimes you might have to undergo a lot of tissue or bone grafting in order to ensure that your mouth will be able to support the implants.
With a NobelProcera Implant Bar Overdenture system, that won’t be as much of an issue. Because the implant site can be moved further back from the front of your mouth, you are less likely to need to undergo extensive gum or bone grafting procedures. This means that you can get treated faster and with less pain. In addition, you are getting the NobelProcera guarantee with every system! Known as one of the most consistent dental manufacturers when it comes to high quality products, NobelProcera is the best option around when it comes to products that will retain their value and functionality long into the future.
