Orlando Cosmetic Dentists Offer Mini Implants to Support Dentures

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwired - January 25, 2016) - Overmeyer Family Dental, a comprehensive general dentistry practice, has a solution for patients struggling with slippery or ill-fitting dentures.

Mini dental implants are placed much like traditional dental implants in that they naturally fuse to the jawbone but are smaller in diameter. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer, who operates Overmeyer Family Dental, said mini dental implants are cost-effective solutions to replacing missing teeth or fixing sliding dentures. The implants are also ideal for patients who have thin jawbones.

"Mini dental implants are great for stabilizing loose, uncomfortable dentures and replacing missing teeth," Dr. Overmeyer said. "This quick, minimally invasive procedure gives our patients back their ability to chew and smile while still fitting their budget."

Both Dr. Thomas Overmeyer and his daughter, Dr. Jessica Overmeyer, are trained to place mini dental implants, and the office has offered the service for the past 10 years. A mini dental implant can be used to replace single missing teeth or to secure full arches of dentures.

Typical dental offices do not offer dental implants, and rather fabricate removable dentures or place dental bridges for missing teeth. To place a bridge, the dentist must shave down two healthy adjacent to the missing tooth to support the restoration. Then the patient is fitted with a series of three dental crowns.

Dental implants address only the missing tooth and do not require the dentist to prepare nearby teeth. Additionally, the implants eliminate the need for denture adhesives and cost about half as much as conventional dental implants. "When patients get their dentures stabilized with the mini dental implants, they are ecstatic that they won't have to use denture adhesive anymore," Dr. Thomas Overmeyer said. "They also liked the fact that their dentures don't move anymore especially when chewing their favorite foods."

Overmeyer Family Dental, 3221 S. Conway Rd., Ste. C, provides preventive dentistry, affordable cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry for patients 3 years old to 103 years old. Individual services include fillings, extractions, wisdom teeth extractions, root canals, partial dentures, full dentures, mini and standard implants, porcelain veneers, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign, sleep apnea treatments and general dental procedures. The practice provides mouthguards for patients who grind or clench their teeth, as well as the "Silent Nite" anti-snore device.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer was born in Fort Wayne, Ind., and graduated high school in Ohio in 1974. In 1977, he graduated cum laude from The Ohio State University, receiving his Bachelor of Science degree in microbiology in just three years. He then graduated from The Ohio State University School of Dentistry in 1980 and attended a general practice residency program at the Medical College of Ohio at Toledo. After dental school and his residency program, Dr. Thomas Overmeyer moved to Florida and spent seven months as a dental associate before buying his own practice. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer has advanced training in mini and standard implants, Six Month Smiles, Invisalign and LANAP laser gum treatment.

Dr. Jessica Overmeyer, a Florida native, received her Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Florida, where she also minored in business and Spanish. She also attended The Ohio State University School of Dentistry, graduating in 2014. Dr. Jessica Overmeyer holds certifications in mini dental implants, Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

Dr. Thomas Overmeyer bought the Orlando dental office that is now Overmeyer Family Dental in June 1982. Overmeyer Family Dental moved to a new office building in February 1984. The 1,500-square-foot facility was recently remodeled and includes six treatment rooms and state-of-the-art dental equipment. Dr. Thomas Overmeyer uses the PerioLase laser to treat periodontal disease, a method he has found to be more effective than traditional gum surgery. He also uses digital X-rays to diagnose and educate patients about oral health issues.
