What Exactly Is
Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of patients with missing or deficient teeth and oral structures. Prosthodontists are highly trained dental specialists who specialize in the restoration and replacement of teeth to improve both function and aesthetics.

Here are some key aspects of prosthodontics:

  1. Dental Prosthetics: Prosthodontists specialize in the fabrication and placement of dental prostheses, which are artificial devices used to replace missing teeth or other oral structures. This includes the design and creation of dental crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants.
  2. Dental Implants: Prosthodontists are skilled in the surgical placement and restoration of dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone to replace missing tooth roots. They provide a stable foundation for the attachment of dental crowns, bridges, or dentures, offering a long-lasting and natural-looking solution for tooth replacement.
  1. Dentures: Prosthodontists are experts in the design, creation, and fitting of complete and partial dentures. Dentures are removable appliances that replace multiple missing teeth or entire arches of teeth. Prosthodontists ensure that dentures are custom-made to fit the individual’s mouth properly and provide optimal comfort, function, and aesthetics.
  2. Dental Crowns and Bridges: Prosthodontists use dental crowns (also known as caps) to restore and strengthen damaged or severely decayed teeth. Crowns are custom-made and cover the entire visible portion of the tooth above the gum line. They can also be used to support dental bridges, which replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants.
    1. Full Mouth Rehabilitation: Prosthodontists are skilled in comprehensive treatment planning and rehabilitation of patients with extensive dental problems, including severely worn, damaged, or missing teeth. They develop a personalized treatment plan to restore the function, aesthetics, and overall oral health of the patient.
    2. Cosmetic Dentistry: Prosthodontists have expertise in cosmetic dentistry procedures aimed at improving the appearance of the teeth and smile. They can perform treatments such as porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and gum contouring to enhance the aesthetics and harmony of the teeth and gums.

    Prosthodontists work closely with other dental specialists, such as oral surgeons, orthodontists, and periodontists, to provide comprehensive and multidisciplinary care for patients with complex dental needs. Their goal is to restore oral function, improve the appearance of the smile, and enhance the patient’s overall quality of life.
