What Is Prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics is a dental specialty that includes all aspects of treatment planning and provision for patients with missing or deficient teeth and/or problems with the oral and maxillofacial tissues. Prosthodontics includes the design and fabrication of dental restorations, but it is not limited to those elements. It also includes diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation, and maintenance of oral functioning, comfort, appearance, and oral health in those who have dental restorations. As there is no separate specialty in dental implants, prosthodontics also covers this highly popular alternative to dentures and bridges.
At Scarsdale Dental Group, our talented dentists have both participated in and provided specialty prosthodontics training internationally. We have extensive practical experience in restoring natural teeth, replacing missing teeth, and rebuilding jawbones to support dental implants.
Why Is Prosthodontics Important?
Technically, any general dentist can create and place dental restorations. While some do excellent work, there is a great deal of clinical knowledge, skill, and experience involved in creating a restoration that is aesthetically pleasing, functional, and comfortable to wear. The bite, or the way the teeth come together, must be perfect. The restoration must be in harmony with your natural teeth.
