Ask Us About Denture-Stabilization Implants

San Mateo tooth implants

The condition of your teeth has a big impact on your quality of life. Denture wearers understand this all too well. At Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City, dental implants can replace a single missing tooth, or be used to anchor a set of dentures.

The Drawbacks of Dentures

While dentures are better than having no teeth at all, they certainly come with a host of downsides. They can irritate gums and make breathing, eating, tasting food, talking, and laughing challenging. And dentures are not a once-and-your-done solution for missing teeth. As the jaw shrinks, they necessitate relines.

Stop The Progression

But there is hope on the horizon! Dental implant technology can improve the quality of life for individuals who have been wearing traditional dentures. To a certain extent, implants curb the downhill progression of declining oral health due to tooth loss.

Dental implants can be used to replace several teeth and/or anchor overdentures. Mini dental implants (also called denture-stabilization implants) allow us to securely attach an appliance so that it won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts are placed into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a strong base for an overdenture.

Restore Chewing Ability

Some denture users retain only ten percent of their chewing capacity. Implant-supported dentures, however, can restore near-normal chewing ability. Improved chewing function can result in better nutrition and overall physical well-being. The psychological benefits are equally valuable.
