What is the practice of prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics is the specialized field of dentistry concerned with diagnosing, planning, and executing restorative and cosmetic treatments. A prosthodontist from our team can formulate a comprehensive treatment plan based on your desires and will inform you of your treatment possibilities. You and our trained prosthodontists can come to a decision about the best course of treatment for your unique needs and goals.
When should I see a prosthodontist?
If you have dental image concerns and would like to learn more about your options, it may be time to contact Implant and Comprehensive Dentistry to schedule a consultation with a prosthodontist.
If you are interested in dentures, teeth whitening, filling gaps, dental implants, or just improving the overall aesthetics of your smile, you could benefit from meeting with a prosthodontist.
What treatments can the prosthodontist perform?
Prosthodontic treatments are designed to be functional, long-lasting and pleasing to the eye. These procedures can only be completed on generally healthy teeth. If you have issues such as gum disease, these issues need to be controlled before prosthodontic treatments can begin.
Prosthodontic treatments available include:
- Dental Implants– replace natural teeth in the best possible way
- Veneers– porcelain/ceramic covers bonded to natural teeth to solve issues like uneven, stained teeth
- Dental Crowns– mimic the natural crown
- Dental Bridges– support a prosthetic tooth
- Complete Dentures– restore functionality and appearance for those with no teeth
- Partial Dentures– enhance aesthetics for those with missing teeth
What other problems can a prosthodontist treat?
In addition to performing the treatments above, a prosthodontist is also adept at treating various other problems you may have. A prosthodontist can help with the jaw (TMJ), alleviating severe snoring, managing sleep apnea, and reconstructing the teeth following oral cancer treatments.
Generally, the prosthodontist works in combination with other dental health professionals in order to ensure the best possible restorative results are achieved.
