Dr. Carl H. Smith has been practicing surgical and restorative implant dentistry since 1970.
He was trained as a "Super Generalist" for adults in:
- Endodontics (root canal therapy)
- Periodontics (gum therapy and surgery)
- Implant Dentistry
- Oral Surgery
- Fixed and Removable Prosthetics (crowns, bridges, dentures)
- I.V. Sedation
- Cosmetic Dentistry
Rather than "grind down" teeth to support a bridge, the use of implants to replace missing teeth eliminates the necessity to jeopardize healthy teeth.
Removable partial and full dentures can often be eliminated and replaced with permanent teeth supported by implants.
Loose dentures can be firmly stabilized with underlying implants and interconnecting attachments.
New grafting techniques can grow bone for implant and support where insufficient bone exists.
Dr. Carl H. Smith works in partnership with his son Randey C. Smith, CDT, one of only two Oral Design dental ceramists in California, in cosmetic dental restoration.
