Benefit from Implants
Dr. Bauer can restore dental implants with a partial or full denture as well, allowing you to experience increased stability and improved oral health.
What does an implant-supported denture look like?
Dentures are made up of two parts: prosthetic teeth and a gum-colored plastic base.
At our Lakewood, CO, dental practice, our patients can choose from partial dentures, traditional removable dentures, and implant-supported dentures. While partial and full conventional dentures are held in place by clasps, dental adhesive, and natural suction, implant-supported dentures stay in place because they are secured to dental implants. For this reason, implant dentures fit, feel, and look more like your natural teeth.
Tooth Loss Is Very Common

Replace Your Old Restoration
Dentistry moves fast, and Dr. Bauer understands the importance of using the latest materials and technology in the creation of dentures. If you are unhappy with the look, feel, or fit of your old-fashioned dentures, it may be time to visit a modern dentist. Dr. Bauer can perform advanced imaging and collect detailed impressions to design a natural-looking, comfortable denture that better suits your needs.
Are You a Candidate for Dentures?
TraditionalIn general, most patients with widespread tooth damage or tooth loss are good candidates for traditional restorations. If you have outstanding oral health concerns like gum disease or loose teeth, our dentist can perform the necessary procedures prior to beginning your restorative dentistry treatment.
Implant-SupportedIn order to receive implant-supported dentures, you should be healthy enough to undergo oral surgery. Because dental implants also increase the cost of treatment, you will also need to be willing to invest in your smile. Lastly, be prepared to commit to a longer treatment timeline.
