Implant Bar Overdentures by NobelProcera Flower Mound, TX
Our teeth are an important part of our lives. Without quality dental care, you might find yourself with teeth that simply don’t do the job they were meant to. When this happens, sometimes the best option for your overall quality of life as well as oral health is to replace your natural teeth with artificial teeth, like dentures.
Do not make the mistake of thinking that every denture option and design are the same, however, as nothing could be further from the truth! At DFW Oral Surgeons, we are excited to offer our patients the NobelProcera Implant Bar Overdenture, one of the leading and most effective options in dentistry.
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 eat or talk!
Instead of the traditional denture, an implant bar overdenture (sometimes referred to as an implant-retained denture) is a denture that is designed to feel and work like real teeth. 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.
If you are just missing one to three teeth in a row, you may also be a candidate for a similar restoration known as an implant-retained bridge. On the other hand, if you are missing all of your teeth on a single arch, another great option is the All-on-4 treatment concept.
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.
