Sometimes called the ‘architects of the smile,’ prosthodontists are highly trained specialists with a unique understanding of all the elements that go into a beautiful, functional and natural-looking smile. This does not just concern the teeth but also the gums, lips, and facial features.
As their name implies – taken from the words prosthesis, meaning addition or attachment – these dentists plan and carry out procedures related to the replacement of natural teeth, in part or in full, with biocompatible substitutes.
Prosthodontic treatments include:
Porcelain Ceramic Bonded-Crowns:
Like fillings, inlays fit inside the tooth.
This method is today’s gold standard when replacing an entire tooth (roots and crown). Implants consist of a titanium metal post implanted in the jaw during a minor surgical procedure.
This screw-like post becomes fused with the jaw bone, providing a solid anchorage for a lifelike crown. Implants can replace single or multiple teeth or support other types of dental restorations, such as dental bridges or dentures.
Dentures are available in many forms, including full, partial, and implant-supported varieties.
They can improve the aesthetics and functionality of an individual who is missing teeth—particularly when the dentures are manufactured to a high standard of workmanship and fitted correctly in the mouth.
