Prosthodontists are experts in the restoration and replacement of teeth – they make smiles look beautiful and function the way they should. After completing four years of dental school, Prosthodontists receive an extra three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate program. Prosthodontists are trained to manage the most complex dental restorations. From patients requiring rehabilitation after a traumatic injury to creating new smiles for those born with genetic facial deficits, Prosthodontists have the special skills and training needed to restore deficient dentitions.
The loss of natural teeth, whether from an accident or as part of the aging process, can be traumatic and affect your outlook on life. Simple pleasures – like smiling or going out to eat – become a source of stress or embarrassment. With the help of a Prosthodontist, there are many options, if you have lost some or all your teeth. Crowns, bridges, and full or partial dentures are just some of the procedures that can help you regain your smile and improve your appearance and self-confidence. Dental implants are a more permanent solution that has been improved greatly over the last ten years, thanks to the pioneering techniques of Prosthodontists. Whether you need to replace one tooth or many, a Prosthodontist will work with you through every step of dental implant treatment, from an initial consultation through follow-up care.
A healthy smile has a significant impact on self-esteem. If you are like many Americans and are unhappy about the “look” of your smile, you may want to consult a Prosthodontist. With their advanced training, Prosthodontists can improve your appearance by fixing broken, discolored or misshapen teeth and associated structures.
Reconstructing or restoring your teeth is necessary to stop the spread of disease in your mouth and preserve your remaining tissue. It’s important to visit us as soon as possible so you can prevent permanent damage to your natural teeth and gums. After we remove the damaged areas, we’ll use a variety of techniques to restore your mouth so it’s fully functional. If the damage to your teeth is minor, we may be able to cover it with a simple veneer, which is easy and painless to install. For more serious cases, you will probably require crowns or implants as well as surgery to repair damaged gums or bones.
