Conventional dentures sit on the gums and rely on tissue and bone for support. Overdentures or implant-supported dentures, on the other hand, feature specialized attachments that fasten onto dental implants that have been installed strategically in the bone of the mouth for support.
Dr. Amin Samadian and his highly trained staff in San Francisco usually recommend implant-supported dentures to his patients because they can help with preserving the bone around the missing teeth, remove the need for denture adhesives, and permit for more effortless chewing and eating. It also inhibits bone loss, which is a common side effect of regular dentures.
An overdenture is a denture arch supported by dental implants that are surgically implanted directly into your jawbone. It may be held in your mouth by balls, bars, or screws.
Since overdentures rely on dental implants for support, they are much more durable than traditional dentures, which are held in by adhesive. Therefore, Dr. Amin Samadian and his team usually suggest them to his patients who want a more convenient alternative to conventional dentures. It may be an ideal option for you if you no longer have any teeth in your mouth, but enough jaw bone to support implants. Should you choose to, overdentures can evolve into All on Four implant-supported hybrid dentures that are fixed dentures that screw into the implants and function exactly like normal teeth.

During the overdenture procedure, Dr. Amin Samadian and his San Francisco team will install implants under your gum line inside the jaw bone, which will act as pillars to which your new set of teeth can attach. Once they are fully secured (which usually occurs after 2-4 months), they will lock in your dentures to the implants. You’ll discover with these implants, you don’t have to worry about your dentures falling out or causing you any discomfort.
Since the overdenture procedure is completed under general anesthesia, you won’t encounter any pain or discomfort.
Once you’ve received your overdentures, you’ll possess a strong and natural replacement for your absent teeth. You’ll have peace of mind appreciating that your teeth will be protected regardless of how active your lifestyle is. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about dentures rubbing against your gums and irritating them.

I could not recommend Dr. Samadian more – AND all of his staff, at that! No longer will I mind or be afraid of going to the dentist.
It’s a completely transformative kind of practice…it was a terrific experience.
Very informative, patient and sensitive to your needs. Very focused, and desires to ensure it’s done properly the first time.
