Are you a candidate for dental Implants?

Are you missing all or most of your natural teeth?

 Are you interested in learning about alternatives to traditional removable dentures?  If you or someone you know has lost teeth through an accident, disease or decay, dental implants may be an excellent tooth replacement option.  With the advent of predictable cutting-edge dental implant technology, there are many viable treatment options available to patients who previously had no choice but to wear dentures.  Now there are many fixed and removable options which utilize placement of dental implants in the jawbone to replace missing teeth.

Dental implants can be used when:

  • All of a patient’s teeth are missing
  • Several teeth are missing
  • A single tooth is missing

Are you a candidate for dental implants?  Every patient is unique.  General overall health as well as the health of your mouth are all important factors when considering dental implant placement and restoration.  Additionally, adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support dental implants.

Not only are traditional dentures sometimes difficult to adjust to, but loss of natural teeth causes bone loss and deterioration called resorption.  Placement of dental  implants in the areas where the original teeth were, minimizes this bone resorption.

The first step is to visit our office for a consultation and complete evaluation with Dr. Gulbransen.  Treatment options vary with individual needs.  For information on  your initial appointment, click here.  As a trained dental specialist in prosthodontics, Dr. Gulbransen is well equipped to provide patients with all of their treatment options.  There is no standard, cookie-cutter treatment modality–every patient has their  own individualized treatment planning process.  Successful implant placement involves a coordinated team approach composed of prosthodontic dental specialist Dr. Harold Gulbransen, the oral surgeon or periodontist who surgically places the implants, and the lab technician.  For information on our team approach, view our blog.

Please call or e-mail our office at staff@sdprostho.com with any questions or concerns.  We look forward to having the opportunity to assist you with your prosthodontic needs.
