Overdenture Smile

The implant-retained Overdenture Smile is a method of reconstructing missing teeth, using 4 implants and a full overdenture. It is retained by a titanium frame called a dolder bar, which is permanently attached to the implants. The solution restores occlusion and the aesthetic appearance of the smile. Compared to a conventional removable denture, an implant-retained overdenture provides better fixation and stability, allows to reduce the size of the prosthesis itself, which does not cover the palate, and thus increases taste sensation and overall comfort of use.

I am very pleased with the procedure and the effect. I can eat at a restaurant and not worry about what I eat. The surgeon and dental technician were wonderful. I would have no hesitation in recommending their work. Thank you again.

A week ago I finished treatment at Project Smile in Gdańsk and I am very pleased with the results. The entire process took place within 3 visits and was completely painless. Everything was stress-free, we were picked up at the airport. My sister and brother were also treated here and they are both really satisfied with the excellent quality of the work. I would highly recommend this to anyone as the prices are only a fraction of what I would pay in Ireland for implants.

Implant Overdenture Smile – for whom?

If, for various reasons, your smile is not complete, the Overdenture Smile method may be the right solution. This method is for you if you:

If  any of the above apply to you, make an appointment for a consultation at Project Smile where we will design a smile according to your current oral conditions and needs.

What is Implant Overdenture Smile?

Overdenture Smile is a type of denture that uses a titanium frame for stabilisation. It is permanently fixed to minimum 2 to 4 implants, depending on bone availability

An implant-retained overdenture is a dental prosthesis that is much more stable and comfortable to use than a conventional removable denture. Thanks to the overdenture being retained by a titanium frame fixed to implants, the denture does not move and provides high comfort of use during everyday activities, such as speaking or chewing meals.

An implant-supported overdenture is also an excellent option for those who have difficulty maintaining proper oral hygiene. It is a full denture that is retained firmly be the Dolder bar, but allows you to take it out when needed. This allows you to easily reach all corners of the prothesis, and makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene.

The implant overdenture smile method is used when there is no possibility of performing other treatment methods. This can be due to insufficient bone volume (despite bone augmentation) for implantation in the required positions in the jawbone which would allow for permanently fixed solutions. An overdenture is also a great solution for those who have trouble maintaining proper oral hygiene, due to the ease of cleaning in the case of this solution.

Prosthetic work is a device (prothesis) designed and farbicated by a dental technician in the laboratory, to be  placed on implants or own roots to restore missing or broke teeth.

A dental implant is a titanium screw ((like a tooth root)) with a special surface and shape. It is surgically positioned in the jawbone to integrate (“fuse”) with it so as to replace a missing root, restore bone stimulation and provide the basis for prosthetic work.

A fixed (non-removable) acrylic bridge is used for 6 to 12 months from the implantation until the implants integrate with the bone, soft tissue/gum heals and the final permanent prosthetic work can be placed. The acrylic prosthesis allows a patient after implant placement to leave the office with a full set of teeth and return to everyday life.

An acrylic bridge differs from a ceramic one in the material it is made of, and consequently its durability and aesthetics. Ceramic work allows for the most accurate reproduction of the appearance of natural teeth. Ceramics is also mechanically very strong, which allows you to bite hard foods. Prosthetic work made of ceramic is sometimes called the “permanent” or “final” one because it is the most aesthetic and durable solution, which serves its purpose and function for years.

The first stage of the treatment is a consultation with the dental surgeon and prosthetic specialist who decide on the patient’s suitability for the procedure upon performing a 3D CBCT (cone bean computed tomography) scan, comprehensive oral examination and taking into account oral and bone conditions to create a plan

After agreeing on a final treatment plan, the dental surgeon positions the implants and loads them with a fixed acrylic bridge , which is aesthetic and functional. Thanks to it, the patient can eat normally, feel comfortable and enjoy a natural-looking smile with replacement teeth in just one day.

After a period of 6 to 12 months ideally or longer, it is possible to replace the fixed acrylic bridge with a more permanent and durable ceramic bridge, which is prepared by a dental technician in the laboratory and custom made to the individual needs of the patient in terms of the materials used, colour and shape.

Prosthetic work used during the treatment at Project Smile can be divided into long term temporaries and more permanent prosthetics. After the first appointment, the prosthetic specialist fixes prosthetic work made of acrylic on the implants. This solution allows for a quick return to everyday, normal functioning. After a period of implant integration with the jawbone, the acrylic work can be replaced with the final, highly aesthetic and durable permanent ceramic work.

At Project Smile, we use Swiss Neodent implants, which belong to the Straumann Group. The manufacturer’s global reach ensures easy maintenance and the safety of our patients regardless of their current place of residence.

Prosthetic works are prepared by experienced Wiligała Lab which is an official Partner Laboratory of the Straumann Group. This cooperation allows us to create prosthetics individually designed to the needs of patients.

Is it possible to make a smile in a day? Yes and no! In the case of implant-supported prosthetics, thanks to proper preparation, it is possible to reconstruct teeth in a day. During the consultation appointment, the occlusion (i.e. the relation between the maxilla and the mandible) is registered, and a intraoral scan of the teeth and gums is being taken, so that the laboratory can prepare a  individually designed acrylic bridge. It is being fixed the implants on the day of the implant placement. For patients coming from abroad, we reserve time in the office for a consultation and bite registration and after a few days of lab fabrication to insert the implants and the acrylic bridge  work in just one day.

Treatment at Project Smile requires only a few simple steps:

  1. Contact

If you have decided to undergo treatment, all you have to do is contact us via the contact form, by phone or WhatsApp. You won’t have to wait long for a response, we will get back to you as soon as we receive your inquiry.

  1. Diagnostic Materials

Once we know your expectations, we will ask you to send diagnostic materials (3D CBCT scans or 2D OPG panoramic X-rays) and smile photos (close-ups of your upper and lower teeth). If you don’t have them, you can make them yourself based on sample photos that we will provide you.

  1. Treatment plan

After reviewing your case, we will determine the best solution. We will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs and then schedule a consultation appointment.

  1. Consultation visit and treatment

At your consultation appointment, your doctor will discuss your treatment plan with you and also offer you two options:

Option 1: consultation only, 1 day in our clinic

Initial consultation, during which the doctor will perform a three-dimensional computed tomography and  a comprehensive intraoral examination. Then, taking into account the bone and occlusal conditions, the dentist will discuss the treatment plan and prepare a quote. After the visit, you can go home and finish your treatment at our clinic in Gdansk at a later time.

Option 2: consultation and treatment, 4-5 working days in our clinic. The most frequently chosen option by our patients.

During the stay, the patient undergoes a free initial consultation, during which the doctor will perform a three-dimensional computed tomography as well as a comprehensive intraoral examination and, taking into account bone and occlusal conditions, will present the final treatment plan. Thanks to the interview conducted before your arrival to Poland, the patient will have a pre-booked time in the doctor’s schedule for the necessary treatment. The first stage of the treatment ends with a permanent acrylic restoration that is aesthetically pleasing and functional. Thanks to it, the patient can enjoy a beautiful smile and return home.

  1. Replacement of the acrylic restoration with the prosthetic restoration.

After a period of 4 to 12 months, it is possible to replace the acrylic prosthetic work with a more durable and aesthetic restoration.
