THE SCIENCE OF PROSTHODONTICS
Prosthodontists is one who restore esthetics, function and comfort to teeth through the use of artificial substitutes. These artificial materials constitute a wide variety of restorations used to restore damaged teeth, replace missing teeth, anchor dentures/crowns/bridges with dental implants, enhance patients’ esthetics (dental and facial) and correct orofacial problems.
You can call it cosmetic dentistry, or a mouth makeover, or mouth rehabilitation. But in each of these cases, you are talking about three main services: Dental implants, cosmetic dental veneers, and treatment of gum disease.
Dental implants provide you with new teeth to replace ones that are either missing or damaged.
Dental implants not only look like real teeth, they have the stability, comfort, and functionality of real teeth.
Dental veneers are custom-designed and manufactured shells that are attached to the surface of your real teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.

RESTORING DAMAGED TEETH
Damage to the teeth can occur during the development of teeth or caused by trauma, teeth grinding, exposure of teeth to acid (diet or disease) or reduction of salivary flow. The complexity of every dental condition is variable and could range from minor intervention to comprehensive treatment.
REPLACING MISSING TEETH
Prosthodontists offer their patients a wide range of options to replace missing teeth depending on each patient’s needs. Whether a patient is a candidate for complete dentures, a removable partial denture, dental implants, a fixed bridge or combination of treatment alternatives, Prosthodontists have an excellent understanding of dental laboratory procedures and are highly experienced to ensure custom-made prosthesis are attractive and comfortable for the patient.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason.
