What Are Overdenture Implants?
We know how hard it can be for patients to lose most or all of their teeth. Fortunately, overdenture implants are a great way to prevent the complications of jawbone loss and a loss of chewing, eating and speaking abilities.
Simply put, overdenture implants are also known as “snap-on” dentures. They are dentures that “snap” onto a set of implants in your jawbone. These implants offer a strong, stable anchor that holds your dentures firmly in place. However, the implants also help stimulate your jawbone like your natural teeth, preventing it from shrinking or wasting away due to a lack of teeth.
That means you can enjoy a long-term, quality solution to tooth loss with implant overdentures in Katy, TX requiring just a few basic oral hygiene steps.
Should I Get Overdenture Implants?
Millions of Americans endure life with missing teeth, and some don’t have teeth at all. But beyond it being an aesthetic issue, there are several problems it can cause:
- Loss of ability to chew, eat solid foods
- Inability to pronounce certain sounds correctly
- Communication and speech issues
- Sunken-in facial appearance due to jawbone deterioration
- Potential for gum disease, periodontitis, and other oral diseases
- Low confidence and self-esteem
If any of these issues affect you, you can benefit from overdenture implants available in our Katy, TX dental clinic. These implant-supported dentures offer a full set of teeth that look and feel natural, function identically, and are mated securely to your jawbone via the implants.

What Is The Difference Between Overdenture Implants and Dental Implants?
Essentially, both overdenture implants and dental implants involve a strong titanium post screwed into your jawbone.
The difference is that instead of attaching to a dental crown (an artificial tooth,) the implants hold a set of dentures firmly within your mouth, snapped into ball-shaped attachments. You also need less implants overall: a set of “All-on-4” dental implants requires eight implants in total; four on top, four on the bottom. “Snap-on” dentures need just six: two on the bottom, and four on top.
This is a great improvement over existing dentures, which are held in by suction alone and can be prone to slipping out. They let you smile and enjoy your teeth with confidence during daily tasks, as they can’t slip out and are held in tight.
