Implants Supporting Dentures
Denture Base Options Offered in Doylestown, Meadowbrook, Langhorne, and Philadelphia
An Implant Supported Overdenture is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Standard dentures are unsecured prostheses with inherent limitations. Most often, dentures are painful, inconvenient and unstable. Such dentures can make chewing foods difficult, limiting the foods that you once enjoyed. Modern dentistry can help with implant supported dentures.
The Implant Supported Overdenture treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by dental implants. Fewer implants are needed and overall treatment time and cost is reduced.

An Implant Supported Overdenture solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume. Implant-supported overdentures stay connected with bar and clip attachment methods or use a variety of abutment-based attachments (ball, magnets, and resilient stud attachments such as Locators). The most appropriate attachment system for your individual needs relates to a variety of factors that is determined early in the treatment. Typically, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day of surgery. The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your dentist will place the final bridge. Your quality of life is improved, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence.
Implant Supported Overdentures offer you many advantages:
- A cost effective solution. When compared to some other implant supported restoration methods, your new replacement teeth require fewer implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is lowered.
- Reduced need for bone grafting. The special angled placement of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, often making bone grafting unnecessary.
- Faster treatment and healing time. Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion.
Scientifically proven and documented. Implant Supported Overdentures have had good clinical outcomes from decade long studies with favorable results.

Patient Review By Frederick G
On my initial consult in August, Dr. Sock reviewed the condition of the root of my tooth (#22) which was decaying below the gum line, and confirmed my dentist's conclusion that a root canal was not an option. The tooth required extraction. Dr. Sock then explained the entire process: after extraction, the tooth cavity is filled with ground up bone, and allowed to integrate into the jaw bone for several months. Then he carefully inserts a titanium implant, which, after healing several months, is then capped with a crown by my dentist. Prior to installing the implant, a 3-D conical beam x-ray is taken by Dr. Sock in order to accurately position the implant in the location where the tooth was extracted and bone graft was completed. What I really liked about this process is that Dr. Sock took his time to explain in detail the entire process, and go over the specific procedure he was going to perform each visit. What really amazed me was how "painless" he made the extraction and bone graft, and then the implant. I even told him that both the extraction and implant procedures were less painful than a tooth cleaning or getting a tooth filled at my dentist! I will recommend him (and this practice) to all my family and friends whenever they require an extraction, implant, or any other type of dental surgery. He and his staff are very caring and go out of their way to make the whole process as smooth and painless as possible!! Excellent work!!

I was able to get scheduled very soon after I first called in. And once I arrived at the office, the entire process from start to finish was prompt, professional, and expertly done. I am happy to recommend this practice to anyone.
