Dr. Thiede has served Tustin, CA as an oral surgeon for over 20 years. His extensive experience in dental implant cases and bar-attachment dentures mean that we’re able to provide straightforward treatment to our patients and those referred to us by their general dentists.
Using state-of-the-art technology, we digitally map out where your dental implants will be placed, reducing the length and invasiveness of your surgery. Guided implant surgery ensures more accurate installation and faster healing for our patients. For added comfort, request one of our safe in-house sedation options. Mild nitrous oxide (“laughing gas”) may be all that you need, but Dr. Thiede is also certified to provide general/IV sedation without having to perform your procedure in an off-site surgical center. Your safety and comfort are extremely important to us. Don’t let dental anxiety stand in the way of having the healthy smile you deserve. We’ll do everything possible to ensure a relaxing atmosphere during your bar-attachment dentures procedure.
Instead of wearing a removable prosthesis, why not opt for implant supported dentures that are permanently secured into place? Our overdenture design is a bar-attachment denture prosthesis.
This is directly affixed to a thin metal arch that hovers over the gums, supported by four implants. When installed, the appliance is only removable by a dental specialist. You’ll never have to worry about taking your “teeth” out at night!
Dental implants add a tremendous amount of support to today’s bar-attachment denture designs, allowing our patients to speak and eat more comfortably (and confidently.) There isn’t a risk of a bar-attachment denture coming out of place, because it’s permanently connected to the implants underneath. Unlike overdentures, bar-attachment styles are a form of implant supported dentures that are not removable by the patient. When you choose this restorative design, you’ll have a restoration that’s with you all day, every day; not something that snaps in and out.
Request your consultation today to find out if you’re a candidate for implant supported dentures.
