Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is the dental speciality that deals with the replacement of missing teeth with artificial substitutes known as prostheses.

A prosthodontist makes artificial replacements for missing or damaged natural structures. This can be as simple as making a crown for a damaged, decayed or malformed tooth, or it could involve the design and fabrication of facial parts for patients who have lost a nose or eye to cancer. Most of the time a Prosthodontist’s work lies somewhere between these extremes.

A Prosthodontist has completed an accredited specialist training program of several years that ensures a higher level of expertise in this field. Specialist training also involves knowledge of the other dental specialities to enable a specialist to integrate a patient’s treatment plan with other specialities to ensure the best possible level of care.

Prosthodontists have special expertise in dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, partial dentures, major reconstruction, traumatic injuries, oral cancer reconstruction, TMD (jaw joint problems), complete oral rehabilitation and complex care management involving multiple specialities.  
Prosthodontists will usually treat the more difficult dental problems such as people who are missing teeth or have significant functional or aesthetic problems. For example, when it comes to restoring an entire arch or the whole mouth, a prosthodontist is indicated for this difficult and complex type of dental treatment. Patients contemplating dental implants or major changes in their appearance should consult with a prosthodontist to assure that they are gaining the best possible care for their dentition.
