Dentures refer to restorative treatments that replace multiple missing teeth. In the past, dentures may have been unstable and uncomfortable, but thanks to dental technology you can now enjoy eating the food you love and a reliable smile. At SF Perio & Implants, we offer implant-supported dentures for both your upper and lower arches. Experience the new era of dentures and reclaim your smile!
Missing All Lower Teeth
Missing All Upper Teeth
Your upper jaw bone is not as hard as your lower jaw so patients may require more implants to stabilize their bite. Our skilled San Francisco implant dentists offer a variety of options to restore the function of your smile.
Implant Retained Upper Denture
Implants can be used to hold a denture in place on the upper arch of your jaw. The implants are inserted into your jaw and the retained denture is attached. You will enjoy the ability to taste all foods and have a denture with a more natural feel. This denture is removable for cleaning.
Individual Upper Implants
Individual upper implants utilize the placement of single implants that are topped by custom-made crowns. Normally requiring between eight and ten implants, this permanent solution restores your bite’s function and look. During the process, your dentists will explain the need for healing and ongoing hygiene care.

How It Works
Implant-supported overdentures are attached to a series of dental implants. Each implant is topped with an abutment-based attachment to hold the overdenture into place. These dentures require a good amount of healthy bone and are removable. The connection for the implants to the denture could be a bar, ball, or magnet.
At SF Perio & Implants, we aim to provide you with a temporary denture on the same day the implants are placed. This is replaced with your custom-made restoration once the healing process is complete.
Benefits for You
The advantages of implant-supported dentures should not be underestimated. Losing your teeth is no doubt a worrying experience and can affect your confidence. With this style of denture, your San Francisco dentist is able to restore the look and function of your smile.
Also, this treatment uses fewer implants, which reduces time in the chair and saves you money. You can enjoy your favorite foods, resume your lifestyle, and smile again with a renewed confidence.
