Bar Overdenture: Guidance on Space Considerations?

Last Updated April 04, 2012
Reviewed By:  OsseoNews Team

I am treatment planning my first bar overdenture and I would like to get some expert guidance from the experienced users. Â Here are some questions I’d like to get feedback on. How much interarch space do I need — measuring from the alveolar bone height to the opposing incisal contacts? How much space do I estimate for the thickness of the gingiva over the alveolar ridge? Â How much space is required for oral hygiene between the height of the gingiva and the bottom of the bar? Â How much space is required for occluso-gingival height of the bar itself? Â How much space is required for the denture teeth and acrylic saddle? Â Do I need more space if I have a metal framework in the saddle areas?
