Prosthodontists specialize in replacing missing teeth and esthetic restorations through complete oral rehabilitation. Extensive training and experience provide prosthodontists with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and the creation of tooth replacements. Serving as the architect of a dental treatment plan, a prosthodontist collaborates with general dentists, other dental specialists and health professionals to develop solutions to dental and oral health concerns.
Why see a prosthodontist?
Prosthetic dentistry focuses on improving and repairing the appearance and health of patients with missing teeth. Prosthodontists can assist patients with dentures, tooth loss, oral cancer, and much more. They can also help improve your smile with veneers, teeth whitening, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. Prosthodontists are skilled in oral health diagnosis and can restore your smile so that it’s as bright as ever.
When should I see a prosthodontist?
You should see a prosthodontist if you want to improve the quality of your dental appearance and functionality. If you have damaged or worn teeth, a prosthodontist can help restore a tooth’s appearance. They can also use a variety of modern, advanced techniques to replace missing teeth.
