Dental implants have revolutionized how we treat lost teeth! Implants are titanium roots that can be used to replace missing teeth. They offer a natural feeling and looking alternative to a bridge and can be used for denture stabilization. The best thing is that dental implants last longer than anything else I use as a dentist. - Continued -

Growing up in Santa Cruz, I loved getting out on the water and hitting the waves. When I had to get dentures I felt like my lower denture was the one surfing. I sought out Dr. Scherer because of his expertise in dentures and he placed 4 small implants and connected my denture to the implants the same day! I’ve never felt so much better out of the water in my whole life, thank you Dr. Scherer!
