    Implant Supported Overdentures

    How Do Implant-Supported Overdentures Work

    Implant-supported overdentures are an advanced form of conventional removable dentures. In this innovative procedure, we place 2 to 4 dental implants in the jawbone that act as supporting pillars for the denture, offering it long-term retention and stability.

    Unlike traditional dentures, the acrylic base of an implant dentures covers a lesser area of the gums, providing more ease and comfort.

    The treatment procedure is much less invasive than replacement with full-arch dental implants. It is an ideal solution for those who have lost most or all of their teeth and require a permanent replacement.

    Our custom-designed implant-supported overdentures in St. John’s, NL, can also benefit those who have suffered minor bone loss.

    The team at EPIC Dental did a great job on my 4 crowns and 1 implant. They were always pleasant, helpful, and professional. Dr. Chidella has a great personality and great skill in making your new teeth fit like a glove. You can't go wrong by going to EPIC Dental for your prosthodontic needs.

    ~ Don Deibel

    From the moment that I first met Dr. Chedella at his dentist chair, I knew I was in good hands. I had implants started in another country but not finished due to the pandemic. Dr. Chedella did a perfect job in completing the procedure. After waiting 20 months in limbo, I can't thank you enough Dr. Chedella.

    ~ Ken Wong

    Nice friendly staff. The doctor gave practical, easy advice on every day changes I could make to help my TMJ problem - and it worked! One of the few specialists I’ve seen in years who I didn’t feel was trying to push an expensive device or unnecessary procedure on me - it was refreshing.

    Treatment Process of Implant-Supported Overdentures at Our Clinic in St. John’s, NL

    The procedure of implant overdentures requires fewer appointments than other invasive treatments. During your initial consultation, our prosthodontist will evaluate the condition of your gums and jawbone. If a few teeth are remaining, we will need to extract them before considering full-arch replacement.

    The primary step of this treatment is implant surgery. In this procedure, we will surgically insert 2 to 4 titanium metal implants in your jawbone. The implants are placed at a certain angle for greater coverage and stability.

    We will place a implant dentures soon after the surgery. It will act as a temporary replacement until the implants fuse with the surrounding bone. Afterward, we will replace it with a customized permanent denture.
