The answer to the question “What is an overdenture?” may sound simple enough, an overdenture is a denture that goes over teeth or dental implants. An overdenture is seen in this picture being inserted into a woman’s lower arch. Most remaining lower teeth were extracted in my Palm Harbor, Tampa Bay area dentist officewhile the patient was sedated. Four teeth were retained, root canal therapy was done on these teeth, posts with ball attachments were placed in these teeth (can be seen in this picture). The final result is a cost effective way to completely restore health, function and esthetics without the use of dental implants or the discomfort of a lower full denture. This is true comprehensive dentistry.
