For anyone who has lost all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures from Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City may sound like a dream come true: dentures that are attached to the jaw, and surpass traditional dentures in appearance and functionality.
Implant-supported dentures are already worn successfully by hundreds of thousands of people. If you hate your conventional dentures, they be just what your need.
As you may know, a dental implant is a titanium post that is placed in the jaw, where it fuses with the bone. A single post can support a single artificial tooth. Multiple posts, strategically placed, can support a set of dentures.
Implant-supported dentures have a number of advantages over traditional dentures:
- More stable. Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
- Natural in appearance. They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
- Built to last. Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
- Prevents bone recession. With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. The titanium posts replace some of the tooth roots, so the bone is preserved.
Implant-supported dentures can transform your life, and they are among the procedures available at Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City. Patients from San Mateo, Pacifica, and Half Moon Bay also come to our office for complete general dentistry services. Call our office to schedule an appointment today!
