Affordable like traditional dentures. Stable like dental implants.
Overdentures are the ideal solution if you’re looking to upgrade your traditional dentures.
No more gritty or goey denture adhesives, no more awkward denture slip-ups while you’re eating or speaking, and no more painful chafing from loose dentures.
Instead, you get a beautiful set of teeth that fit securely, delivering seamless comfort and convenience that you’ll enjoy every single day – all at a price that’s much more accessible than a full set of dental implants.
While the individual qualities of a patient’s mouth can affect the process of getting overdentures, the basic process involves three parts – a consultation, the surgery itself, then follow-up appointments to fine-tune your overdentures for a perfect fit.
Getting your consultation
During your consultation, we’ll examine your mouth to see if you’ll need any other treatments before you can get overdentures, and also answer any questions you have about the process.
Placing your overdentures
This is where we’ll fit your mouth with the dental implants and connecting points that your overdentures will attach to. You can expect the surgery to take up to an hour to complete.
Adjusting your overdentures
As you get used to your new overdentures, you’ll come back for another three to seven 30-minute adjustment sessions where we’ll help you fix any comfort issues that you’ve noticed.
After Your Overdenture Surgery
Getting a CBCT scan isn’t absolutely necessary, but it’s highly recommended if you’re getting dental implants. The more information we have about your mouth and jaw, the more likely it is that you’ll be getting a beautiful set of worry-free implants that you can enjoy for decades.
Get a brand new smile without missing a beat
For about 3 to 7 days after your surgery, we recommend resting as much as possible, eating soft foods, and avoiding heavy cardio. Aside from that, you can still drive, go to work, and do most of your regular activities. If you have specific questions or concerns, be sure to ask about them during your consultation.
Taking care of your overdentures
You should remove your overdentures every night, clean them thoroughly, and keep them in water or a denture solution so that they retain their shape. Taken care of properly, your dental implants and overdentures can last for a long time.
We can’t say for sure they’ll last the rest of your life any more than natural teeth, as there’s always wear and sometimes repairs or replacements are needed.
However, with good oral hygiene, the implants themselves will often last well over 15+ years. We’ve been placing and restoring implants for just under 30 years, and we see most of those implants still in service after 25+ years.
New patients come to see us with existing implants that have been in place for 45 years, so you can feel confident that with the ideal treatment you’ll get many years of service and value out of your dental implants and prosthetics.
What our clients say about us
Friendly staff that makes you feel comfortable
I've been a patient of Dr. Balogh since 2011. I highly recommend VCCID, including Dr. Balogh and the other dentists, the hygienists, dental assistants, and staff. They go to great lengths to make you feel comfortable - especially in the case of those who suffer from dental anxiety and odontophobia, like myself. True painless dentistry. Everyone (especially Dr. Balogh) has a good sense of humour which makes the experience a joy. If you, like myself, fear the process, they offer sedation dentistry which takes the fear out of the equation. After awhile, I switched from oral sedation and nitrous oxide (NO, or 'laughing gas') to just NO: due in large part of the trust I built with Dr. Balogh et al. Two thumbs up!
End of embarassment
I was having trouble with my denture slipping, trouble with chewing and was never able to smile without my teeth (denture) falling out. But since I had my transplant (dental implants) everything is okay. I sometimes forget that these are not my own teeth and I have teeth again. I can smile without pain or discomfort and eat everything without problem. It is one of the best things that I have ever done.
Thanks to Dr. Balogh + associates. Job well done

One of the best crowns that other dentists have seen
I have been a patient of Dr. Balogh for over 20 years. When I moved away for a while, I was told by several dentists that the crown he did was one of the best they’d seen. He explains everything carefully and outlines your options while telling you what he thinks is your best option. His assistants and front desk staff are all very efficient and friendly. I recommend Dr Peter Balogh as a great dentist.
A complete approach to dental care
When you visit VCCID for your overdenture procedure, you can rest easy knowing that your oral health is in the capable hands of one of Metro Vancouver’s most experienced dentists.
With over 25 years of dentistry experience and thousands of hours spent placing dental implants, there are few dentists who understand implants and dentures as well as Dr. Balogh. All of that knowledge and experience goes towards one thing: making sure you have a beautiful, healthy smile that you’re proud to show off.
Plus, with VCCID’s holistic approach to dental care, you’ll know that Dr. Balogh and his team are looking out for more than just your oral health – they’re supporting the health of your entire body from head to toe.
