Dental Implants, Dentures
Are you a denture wearer? Have you experienced the discomfort of an ill fit, or slipping and clicking that embarrasses you so much you don’t want to talk or smile? Implant-retained dentures could be the right option for you. Provines Dental Services serves the San Jose community, and regularly sees patients for implant-retained dentures.
An implant-retained denture is a set of prosthetic teeth that replace several missing teeth, or an entire arch of missing teeth, and that are held in place by dental implants. When dental implants are surgically inserted below the gum, into the jawbone, the body accepts them as the tooth root and the bone grows around the post. This creates a solid foundation on which to attach a denture. The dental implants stimulate the jawbone to stop atrophy and gum shrinkage, and hold your denture securely in place. Implant-retained dentures can be used to secure partial dentures as well as full dentures. The result of an implant-retained denture—a good fit, a stable prosthesis, and a new lease on life.
