Replace Missing Teeth Permanently
Our Duluth dental office is equipped with the latest in digital technology. Dr. Saltzman uses DEXIS X-rays to gain greater insight into the density, volume, and shape of your jawbone, supplying him with the information necessary to develop precise dental implants crafted specifically for each patient’s unique anatomy.
After an evaluation, Dr. Saltzman determines whether patients are eligible for dental implants and crafts a wax-up to give patients a preview of their new smile. Patients require good-standing oral health that includes sufficient jaw bone and surrounding gum tissue to integrate and support the new implant post.
Dr. Saltzman works closely with a trusted local specialist for placement. Together, they develop an implant treatment plan suitable specifically to the needs of each individual. Patients return to our office to receive their final restoration. Options we offer for rebuilding function and esthetic include:
Single-unit crowns replace a missing tooth anywhere in the smile. This alternative to a bridge preserves existing anatomical structure while supporting the surrounding hard and soft tissues.
Implant-supported bridges can form a row of teeth and replace several missing in a given quadrant. A dental bridge utilizes two to three implants strategically placed for optimal support and bite strength.
Implant-retained dentures stabilize the bite and give patients a completely restored smile. Patients utilizing implants to secure dentures in place benefit from improved function and oral health.
We utilize only the highest quality materials. Depending on each patient’s needs, we fit all-porcelain, porcelain-fused-to-gold, and porcelain-fused-to-titanium when necessary, always considering longevity and the final esthetic. Our local technicians visit our office every day to pick up new impressions and drop off hand-crafted appliances, ensuring the quality of our service.
