You will undergo a consultation to see whether overdentures are right for you. If you already wear dentures, the process takes very little time and in one visit all of the dental implants can be placed. Dr. Koplon typically allows 12-16 weeks for healing of the dental implants before finishing your overdentures or modifying your existing dentures. After you have been fitted for the overdenture, you will be taught how to take care of them and set up on our hygiene protocol so they will last longer and be more reliable. Eating and speaking in general improve tremendously when your overdentures are fixed in place.
