Overdentures at Nova Implant Centre

In the past, traditional dentures were the go-to option for patients with failing natural teeth. However, overdentures offer a new and improved approach that could be a better solution for you.
Traditional dentures have been a time-tested approach, but they can eventually cause muscle and bone loss in the lower jaw, leading to changes in facial appearance that make a person look older.
Complaints of slippage are also quite common. Overdentures, on the other hand, don’t slip because they’re held in place by dental implants. Like traditional dentures, overdentures are removable and consist of faux teeth and gum tissue, but they attach to implants when worn. For a full lower jaw overdenture, just two implants are usually required, while the upper jaw requires more implants.
Overdentures are available in several varieties, providing patients the freedom to select the one that best suits their needs. An overdenture implant, however, is not suitable for everyone. The patient’s bone must be strong enough to sustain the required implants, and it may take many months for the implant site to heal.

Implant Denture Care

What is Involved in Overdenture Care?

The removability of overdentures, which enables them to be taken out at night for cleaning, is a key benefit from a hygienic perspective. In the long run, this approach is essential to preserving the durability and healthy condition of your denture solution.
Just like natural teeth, dental implants require regular cleaning to prevent infection. Therefore, it’s essential to maintain a regular oral hygiene routine, including cleaning your overdentures.
Regular checkups are also crucial to ensure the optimal condition of your overdentures. These appointments allow your denturist to monitor the condition of your overdentures and make any necessary adjustments to improve your comfort and appearance.


Answers to
Same-Day Denture FAQs

The main difference between Same-Day dentures and conventional dentures is that Same-Day dentures are only meant to be a temporary solution for missing teeth. 

Same-Day dentures, otherwise referred to as “Immediate dentures” are placed in your mouth the same day as your teeth are extracted. They will serve as a temporary set of dentures until the healing process is complete and you can then wear your permanent dentures.

Immediate dentures should be kept in for 24-48 hours after your tooth extraction surgery, without taking them out. Taking your Same-Day dentures out during this period can make it difficult to put them back in due to the swelling.

After the initial 48 hour period, you should continue to wear your dentures but you’ll be able to remove them for cleaning and to give your gums a rest.

The time it takes to make a set of temporary dentures varies from one dental clinic to the next. However, it will typically take a week or two to create your Immediate denture at most clinic. This may involve several trips to the dentist while they’re being made.

Since they are made before your tooth extraction procedure, your Same-Day dentures will be ready to go when you get your teeth out.


It’s important to note that Same-Day dentures aren’t necessary, however, they do make the tooth extraction process much simpler.

If you’re only getting a few teeth extracted, your dentist might not recommend Immediate dentures. However, if you’re doing a full extraction, your dentist will likely suggest Same-Day dentures. If you have a strong gag-reflex, Same-Day dentures might not be right for you.

Same-Day dentures, or Immediate dentures are designed to only be temporary. They are typically worn for a maximum of 6-8 months until the arrival of a permanent denture.

It’s important to note that your temporary dentures will likely need to be relined throughout the healing process to make your denture more comfortable. Although it’s a temporary solution, Same-Day dentures can last just as long as conventional or permanent dentures – we don’t advise on long-term use of Same-Day dentures.

The main benefit of getting Same-Day dentures is that they’re quick and convenient. Immediate dentures  protect your gum tissues and also help control bleeding.

One of the biggest reasons patients opt for getting Same-Day dentures is to avoid walking around in public with no teeth. A set of Immediate dentures will help you keep the function of your teeth to eat, speak, and smile confidently while you’re waiting for your permanent dentures.
