Why You Should Seea Board Certified Prosthodontist

If your teeth and gums are strong and healthy, a general dentist can usually provide the care you need. However, if you are missing one or more teeth or suffer from decay, excessive wear or dental-related pain, working with a prosthodontist might be in your best interest. You see, this is what we do.

Prosthodontists have completed at least three years of additional training (beyond dental school) to become specialists in the esthetic restoration and replacement of teeth. There are around 30 prosthodontists in San Diego County, and they have unmatched expertise in creating beautiful, functional smiles with dental implants, crowns and bridges, porcelain veneers, dentures and other treatment options.

To take things one step further, a handful of prosthodontists have gone through the extensive process to become Board Certified. In fact, Dr. Johnson is one of only six Board Certified Prosthodontists in San Diego County.

Changing the Lives of Kids

Helping any one of our patients restore their smile is incredibly rewarding. At the same time, we are truly honored to be able to utilize these same skills to change the lives of a small group of amazing kids and adults. Ectodermal Dysplasia is a disease that is diagnosed about 2,800 times per year in the United States. Missing and malformed teeth are one of the most common affects. Fortunately, Dr. Johnson and his team have pioneered techniques to allow kids as young as age 4 to wear dentures, eat real food and grow-up with smiles on their faces.

Helping Thousands Sleep Better

As it turns out, the skills Dr. Johnson has learned as a prosthodontist enable him to help patients (and their loved ones) across San Diego get a better night’s sleep. Serious medical complications often accompany a consistent lack of sleep. And, we are fortunate to work with a group of leading medical and sleep experts across Southern California to provide oral appliances as part of the overall treatment of patients with obstructive sleep apnea. These comfortable, affordable and non-invasive devices are often very effective for patients with mild to moderate (and even severe) sleep apnea.
