If you have one or more missing teeth, you are far from alone! In fact, you are one of over 100 million Americans with a similar problem. Some lack but a single tooth, while others are completely edentulous (without teeth). Dentures are generally the first solution considered in connection with tooth loss. However, over time a jawbone lacking natural teeth will shrink, causing dentures to slide and irritate the gums. If you have been wearing dentures for some time, you are most likely aware of their limitations and your increasing inability to enjoy eating, laughing, talking, and socializing. Dr. Nicholas Shubin is pleased to offer an alternative to traditional dentures—implant supported dentures—that utilize the strength and durability of dental implants. With implant supported dentures, he can provide a complete transformation in your quality of live, giving you a strong and stable bite, comfort eating, and confidence laughing and talking with others!
Dental implants take on the physical characteristics of tooth roots and act as anchors for dentures, producing an improvement in your day-to-day life and the long-term function and health of your smile. Implant supported dentures also eliminate the pain, discomfort, and inconvenience characteristic of wearing dentures for long periods of time. If you have a full arch of missing teeth and you value and desire these life-changing benefits, the initial cost of implant supported dentures will be worth it. With any option, the long-term success of implant supported dentures begins with dentists specialized and experienced in the surgical and restorative parts of treatment.
Function and aesthetics must work in harmony in order for implant supported dentures to last for the long-term. Creating this balance requires meticulous planning and careful implementation during every stage of treatment. It is wise to choose a dentist capable of maintaining this great level of detail and accuracy throughout your entire treatment process. With expertise in both the placement and restoration of implant supported dentures, Dr. Shubin holds himself to this high standard of care from your consultation till the day you receive your brand new smile. Furthermore, he and our team are pleased to be able to provide comprehensive care in the convenience of our San Juan Capistrano, CA office!
From placement to restoration, your entire treatment process, including all preliminary procedures like tooth extractions and bone grafting, are completed under one roof by a single, experienced team. By leveraging advanced technology, such as cone beam CT imaging, surgical guides, and stem cell therapy, we are also able to vastly improve the accuracy and precision during implant surgery, accelerate healing, and increase the predictability of long-term success. After Dr. Shubin has placed your implants, he will modify your existing denture or design a new prosthesis with a level of artistry and craftsmanship that creates unique, natural teeth and smiles for each of his patients. With your final and permanent prosthesis in place, you be able to enjoy a life full of health, function, and confidence in your beautiful new smile!
