Prosthodontics

Missing teeth can make it difficult for a patient to enjoy food, as well as creating a feeling of unease around smiling or laughing in front of other people.

These two factors can drastically reduce a person’s quality of life.

Prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the professional design, development, and fitting of prosthetic substitutes for missing teeth made from a range of materials such as composite resin or porcelain. The aim is to restore function while improving the aesthetic look of a patient’s smile.

Many dentists are trained to replace missing teeth with prosthetics, but prosthodontists are specialists in the field.

The ideal candidate for treatment with a prosthodontist is one with complex tooth restoration needs, including congenital issues, challenges such as cleft palates, or those with facial trauma resulting from injury.
