Overdentures With Implants

For added security with the option of a removable denture, our overdenture implant option is a wonderful choice. Overdentures are conventional dentures that are stabilized by dental implant anchors but can still be removed at the end of the day. They snap snuggly onto your dental implant roots to prevent them from rocking, moving, or causing sore spots when you wear them.

partial dentures


Do you need to replace several missing teeth at one time? Removable partial dentures clasp into place around your existing teeth to free up space in your mouth.


Depending on the type of denture you choose, your treatment may take two to three dental appointments. It really depends on the health of your bones and other teeth in the mouth. For instance, some patients need to have teeth removed before having an impression made for their permanent prosthesis. When you schedule your San Diego denture consultation with us, we can discuss the process more thoroughly with you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do dentures stay in place?

Conventional dentures are designed to be supported by gums so initially adhesives may be required to keep the restoration in place. This can be practiced until the tongue and the cheek get used to dentures. The case is not the same with implant-supported dentures, however. These dental restorations do not require any additional support apart from dental implants.

How do I clean my dentures?

Oral hygiene plays a crucial role in the health of your teeth and gums, whether you have fixed or removable dentures. The artificial teeth set can be removed and cleaned using a toothbrush. The denture can be dipped in warm water before cleaning it. Patients should make sure to remove all food particles from dentures since any remains can increase the risk of dental infection. Dentures should be handled carefully since they may break if they slip and fall. Give True Design Dentistry a call if you have any concerns about your dentures and how to properly maintain them.

Denture Care and Maintenance

To get the most out of your removable denture or partial dentures, a good home care routine is important. Make sure you’re removing your prosthesis each night to brush it clean, soak it in an effervescent cleanser, and rinse it thoroughly the next morning. It’s also important to clean your gum tissues with a soft washcloth or toothbrush regularly to help prevent any infections.

Be sure to bring your denture with you to your regular checkups so that our San Diego dentist can inspect how it fits, make any necessary adjustments, and perform a full oral exam and cancer screening. With the right maintenance, your new denture can last for years.
