Dr. Bauer Offers Dental Implant Restorations  The Latest & Greatest Way to Replace Missing Teeth

Many of us might know friends or family members who are missing teeth. But did you know that missing teeth can hurt your overall health and self-image?

  • Changes in Face Shape: If you are missing teeth, your cheeks and lips won't have the proper support and your jawbone can recede, which can make you look older.
  • Poor Nutrition: Missing teeth can make it difficult to properly chew tough proteins and crunchy veggies. This can impact your nutrition and overall health.
  • Lower Self-Esteem: Lastly, missing teeth can make you feel less confident when you smile, forcing you to cover your mouth when you laugh or eat.

Is It Time to Visit the Dentist? Ask Yourself:

1) Do you have pain or discomfort?

Toothaches, sensitive gums, or jaw pain–even headaches–could all be signs of infection, disease, or misalignment. Without proper care, your symptoms can worsen, requiring more expensive care. If you are experiencing any discomfort, our dentist can review your concerns, perform an exam, and determine the right treatment.

2) Are there aspects of your smile that you wish you could change? 

In today's world, there are more and more opportunities for up-close and personal interactions in-person or over the phone. If you've always been self-conscious about crooked, discolored, or misshapen teeth, now's the best time to visit our dentist and learn about your options. At our Lakewood practice, we have virtually unlimited treatment options available to help you discover your best smile.

3) When was the last time you visited the dentist? 

If you can't remember, don't be embarrassed. Whether you have a busy schedule or dental anxiety, we understand that there are a variety of reasons why you might skip the dentist. Dr. Bauer offers flexible weekday hours and the latest technology to make your next visit as efficient and comfortable as possible. We recommend that patients schedule exams every six months to keep their oral health in check.

I am a new patient, and I am extremely pleased. I have had many negative dentist experiences in Denver over the past few years, and I am finally so relieved I found Bear Creek Family Dental. Dr. Bauer is so friendly and professional and really talks you through everything. It feels really nice to know I have found a dentist I can stick with and bring my children to.

When I first arrived Fay and the other wonderful ladies helped me understand how my health insurance works (new college student) and got me in as soon as possible. The dentist here replaced his uncle after two years of being with them, he is just as friendly and has the ability to make anyone comfortable. Highly recommend this quality office!
