The condition of your teeth has a significant impact on your health and well-being. Denture wearers understand this all too well. Implant-supported dentures from Kenneth Hovden DDS in Daly City are the most secure and stable denture option available anywhere.
The Drawbacks of Dentures
While traditional dentures are better than no teeth at all, they certainly come with drawbacks. They can irritate gums and make breathing, eating, tasting food, talking, and laughing difficult. And dentures are not a once-and-your-done solution for missing teeth. As the jaw shrinks, they call for relines.
Stop The Progression
But there is hope! Dental implant technology can improve the quality of life for men and women who have been wearing traditional dentures. To a certain extent, implants halt the downhill progression of declining oral health due to tooth loss.
Implant dentures are securely attached so they won’t slip or irritate gums. Small titanium posts (the actual implants) are inserted into the jawbone and fuse with the surrounding bone, creating a strong base for an overdenture.
Restore Chewing Ability
Implant-supported dentures can restore near-normal chewing ability. Improved chewing function with implants can result in better nutrition and overall physical well-being. The psychological benefits are equally valuable.
