What are overdentures in Battersea?

Overdentures, also known as implant retained dentures, combines wearing dentures with dental implants.

If you have missing teeth or no teeth at all, you can opt to wear removable dentures. Overdentures fit securely on to dental implants during the day to give teeth a natural and strong feeling.

Implant retained dentures will not slip which can happen with regular dentures. Plus, there’s no need for adhesives with overdentures. Your new, removable teeth are held firmly in place meaning you can eat, chew and smile with absolute confidence.

Patients from Battersea, Stockwell, Clapham, Brixton, Wandsworth, and throughout London are choosing overdentures as an affordable and secure way to replace missing teeth.

How do implant retained dentures work at The Cosmetic Dental Gallery in Battersea?

Initial consultation
At your first consultation with our dental implantologist, we’ll talk to you about the process and benefits of implant retained dentures. We’ll also talk through any questions or worries that you may have.

Next, we’ll assess your mouth, checking on your teeth, mouth and gums. We’ll use x-rays and possibly a CT scan to make sure that you have a sufficient jawbone to place the dental implants. It’s important for the success of your dental implants that your mouth is in optimum health before we start the next step.

Dental implant surgery
At your next appointment in Battersea, we will give you a local anaesthetic to numb your mouth. We will then gently place the dental implants, consisting of titanium screws, into your jawbone.

This may sound drastic but is a straightforward process. Pain is minimal and whilst your gums may feel sore after the surgery, it is manageable with paracetamol.

Healing
We allow a period of time for your gums to heal and for the dental implants to fuse with your jawbone. This process is called osseointegration and is essential for the success of your dental implants.

During this time, The Cosmetic Dental Gallery in Battersea will make your bespoke over dentures.

Fitting of your dentures
Once your healing period has finished, we will invite you back to the dental practice in Battersea to fit your overdentures. We will show you how you can easily snap your overdentures on to your dental implants in the gums, so that you can remove them at night and wear them again during the day.

You can now enjoy and show off your brand new smile!

Maintenance
it’s important to maintain a good oral hygiene to promote the longevity of your dental implants. You will need to clean your overdentures daily and keep your gums and dental implants clean.

I recently visited the practise for my composite bonding treatment. I was very nervous for the result but Dr Tej and the staff made me feel very comfortable. Dr Tej took so much care in perfecting my smile, as if my teeth were an art piece! I am so happy with the result, I used to be afraid to show my teeth whilst smiling and now I get so many compliments for having a beautiful smile!
