Are Dentures the Only Answer for Extensive Tooth Loss?

Your teeth are meant to last a lifetime, and with proper home care and regular checkups at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA, they can. But sometimes things go wrong, in spite of everyone’s best efforts. Dental implants are an ideal solution for anyone who loses one or more of their natural teeth.

Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone, where they fuse with the bone. Once they do, they become rock-solid supports for one or more replacement teeth.

Multiple implants, usually four, can support a full dental arch. They have a number of advantages over ordinary dentures:

  • Increased Stability: Because they are attached to titanium posts that have fused with the jaw, people have much greater biting and chewing power.
  • Natural Appearance: They look more like natural teeth, and are easier to care for.
  • Durability: Because they are physically attached to the jaw, implants are long-lasting.
  • Prevent Bone Recession: With traditional dentures, the bone around missing tooth roots begin to deteriorate. These 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 restorative dentistry procedures available at Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Los Altos CA. Patients come to our office from Daly City, Milpitas, and Saratoga for implants and general dentistry. Contact us today!
