Prosthodontic Dentistry

Prosthodontic Dentistry, or Prosthetic Dentistry, is concerned with treating missing teeth or treating existing teeth that have significant damage. The Prosthodontist deal with congenital defects as well as problems arising from trauma and neglect. The Prosthodontist can aid in the rehabilitation of a complete dentition or merely in the replacement of one or two teeth.

There are different ways to replace missing teeth, such as bridges or partial dentures. Bridges and Dentures may be fixed or removable.

At our dental clinic, we utilize IPS Empress porcelain, amongst other conventional materials, for natural looking teeth. Our dental center provides the full range of dental treatments services for bridges/crowns, complete or partial dentures and dental implants.

Benefits of Prosthetics

The benefits of fixing missing teeth using dentures and bridges include:

  • Prevents exisiting teeth from drifting into surrounding space of the missing teeth
  • Teeth out of position can damage tissues in the mouth
  • The difficulty of thorough cleaning between crooked teeth runs the risk of tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease that can lead to the loss of additional teeth.
  • Improves out your smile
  • Helps to properly chew food
  • May improve speech
  • Prevent a sagging face by providing support for lips and cheeks
