If you’ve had trouble adjusting to your dentures, you’re not alone. For many, traditional dentures are uncomfortable and make speaking difficult. And while they may restore your appearance for awhile, they ultimately can’t prevent you from losing more bone mass in your jaw over time.
That’s why, if you live in the Los Angeles area, you should consider implant-supported dentures from Westside Dental Associates. With implant-supported dentures, you can reclaim your quality of life and your winning smile!
What Makes Implant-Supported Dentures Different?
Whereas traditional dentures rely on suction or adhesives, implant-support dentures are anchored by dental implants. That means they come in two parts. What your friends and family will see are your beautiful, natural-looking dentures. What they won’t see are the dental implants anchoring them.
Dental implants are made from a biocompatible metal that works with your existing bone tissue to creating a firm foundation for your dentures. It’s this strong foundation that gives implant-supported dentures their advantage over traditional dentures.
But as great as implant-supported dentures, not every patient is a candidate for dental implants. Which is why, if you live in Los Angeles and have been considering implant-supported dentures, you should call us today. We’d be happy to schedule a consultation visit for you with Dr. Latner.

Have you ever put off important dental care because of fear, anxiety, stress or physical discomfort? At Westside Dental Associates, we don’t want anything to stand between you and a healthy smile.
If anxiety or pain is standing in your way, Dr. Latner would like you to know we can help. Safe and effective oral conscious sedation makes it possible for patients to feel relaxed and at peace while receiving the care their smile needs.
What Is Oral Conscious Sedation?
Oral conscious sedation uses a combination of nitrous oxide and a mild oral sedative. With these combined, patients who have felt restless or anxious in the past can achieve a level of calm that may have seemed impossible in the past
How Does Oral Conscious Sedation Work?
If you’ve chosen to use oral conscious sedation for your procedure, Dr. Latner will prescribe a mild oral sedative for you to take prior to your next appointment. Then, once the sedative has taken effect, Dr. Latner will administer nitrous oxide to enhance the soothing effects of your pill.
While you’re sedated, Dr. Latner will be able to complete hours of dental work while you relax in our Los Angeles office without you even noticing the passage of time. Some patients even become so relaxed that they fall asleep.
