Dr. Bauer describes how to stabilize your dentures with dental implants
Removable dentures have helped countless patients regain a sense of wellbeing and basic dental function, but if you feel embarrassed or insecure in your dentures, you are not alone. We provide the permanent, fixed alternative to dentures—implant supported dentures—which blend the unique, beneficial characteristics of both dentures and dental implants. Overall, implant supported dentures provide a significant improvement in security, health, and long-term function, and are many patients’ choice for solving issues associated with missing teeth and removable dentures.
Our experienced dentist, Dr. Viorela Bauer has completed hundreds of continuing education courses in dental implant surgery and prosthetics. With two decades of dental expertise, she leads the Arroyo Grande, CA area as a provider of implant supported dentures solutions for patients struggling with the limitations of removable dentures. Under our experienced care, you can return to a life of confidence, security, and health with personalized, comprehensive treatment.
Implant supported dentures provide many benefits that removable dentures simply cannot achieve. This is due to the dental implants, which we surgically place into your jaw. These implants act as both an anchor and a foundation onto which we securely attach your modified denture or a new prosthesis. Implant supported dentures rely on the strength of the dental implants and no longer need the gums to remain in place. In fact, implant supported dentures will not rest on your gums at all, eliminating the need for messy pastes to keep them secure or any soft tissue irritation or rapid bone loss common with removable dentures. With implant supported dentures securely in place, you are free to enjoy eating a wide variety of foods without worry, laugh and talk with confidence, and find a renewed sense of wellbeing. All these benefits remain the same for each of our patients, but we are careful to customize each of our treatment plans to fit the unique needs and desires of each—including you.
If you choose implant supported dentures, we will personalize your treatment to give you the best possible functional and aesthetic improvements to your smile. We do this through our advanced imaging and planning technology, including our cone beam 3D CT imaging and custom surgical guides. From beginning to end, our in-house implant care is backed by this technology and the expertise of Dr. Bauer and our team.
Rarely do any of our patients need to be referred outside of our office for treatment, including tooth extractions and bone grafting. This streamlines your entire dental implants process, helping you achieve your best smile in less time. You will find that choosing implant supported dentures over traditional dentures is one of the best decisions you can make in terms of your oral health, the function and beauty of your smile, and overall confidence in yourself.
