One of the drawbacks of conventional dentures is that they require adhesives to stay in place, which is not always reliable. Dentures can slip or come out when you are eating, talking or even when you unexpectedly sneeze. They can cause sore spots on pressure points since they are placed directly on the gums. An advanced option for complete smile restoration is removable implant-supported dentures from Pacific Sky Dental in Daly City.
Our dental implant dentist, Dr. Jone, is an experienced dentist that offers many dental restoration options at our clinic. Removable implant-supported dentures are one option that can enhance the function and comfort of wearing dentures. Dr. Jone can surgically place dental implants that can hold removable dentures in place. The implants are made from titanium screws that are inserted into the jawbone and fuse into place. This creates secure anchors for the dentures, keeping them stable when you chew, talk or laugh.
There are several benefits to implant-supported dentures over conventional dentures. Those who have had conventional dentures and upgrade to implants for support enjoy the confidence and comfort they experience. There are no worries about dentures slipping in public, embarrassing you in front of others. Plus, there is no need for gritty adhesives and the stability of implant support can reduce the chance of sores from dentures rubbing on pressure points. Another benefit is that implants promote bone growth in the jaw and help prevent bone loss, which can help maintain the shape of your face and mouth.
