Dental Implants, Life Like Dentures & Implant Overdentures


Rittenhouse Dental Group specializes in restorative dentistry for seniors by offering Philadelphia dental implants, dentures and overdentures.

Dental implants are root devices, typically made of titanium that dentists use to support restorations that serve to replace a tooth or set of missing teeth. Surgically placed below the gums, implants fuse to the jawbone and serve as a base for individual replacement teeth, bridges or a denture.

Patients with healthy gums and adequate bone structure to support the implant are prime candidates for the procedure. An examination by your dentist will determine if implants are right for you. If you select to have the implant procedure, you will have three appointments. First, the dentist will implant a titanium screw into the jaw bone beneath the missing tooth. Once the implant has healed, your dentist will take an impression of the implant site and send it to the lab, where the crown is made. Finally, the crown is returned to the dentist and he places it.

Dentures are prosthetic devices that are used to replace missing teeth. When worn, they are held in place by the soft and hard tissue of the mouth. To make sure you have life like dentures, they must be custom fitted to your mouth and gums. Properly constructed dentures will restore a natural smile and provide a secure bite.

Implant overdentures are structures that combine the technology of dental implants with removable dentures to create a secure fit. Used when a patient does not have any teeth in the jaw, but still has sufficient bone structure to support the implants, implant supported dentures rest on the gums and snap onto the implants.

Overdentures are applied over four appointments. First, the dentist will place the implants in the jaw. After they have healed, the dentist will uncover the tops of the implants. In your next appointment, the dentist will cast a metal framework screw it onto the abutments. Finally, in the fourth session, the dentist will apply the overdenture.
