Prosthodontics is a unique branch of dentistry that deals particularly with dental restorations. Prosthodontists are involved in the fabrication and bonding of various dental prostheses such as implants, bridges, crowns, veneers, etc. This branch of dentistry requires high proficiency as creating dental prosthetics that are visually and functionally similar to the natural teeth is very important to restore a beautiful smile.
Importance of prosthodontics
Prosthodontics involves the fabrication of tooth restorations that are mainly intended to restore a person's smile. With the help of such restorations, patients who have teeth that are chipped, broken, worn out, badly discolored, entirely extracted, etc., can get them restored to their healthy state and appearance. This can massively boost their approach and help them interact with people with more confidence. Also, most dental prostheses improve the mouth's functionality and allow one to bite and chew food effectively.
What oral conditions can prosthodontists treat?
Missing teeth: Missing teeth can be a massive letdown. It can make chewing and even speaking difficult. We can save you from trouble with missing teeth by offering tooth restorations such as dental implants and bridges. If you have lost multiple or even all of your teeth, we can fabricate customized dentures for you.
Chipped or cracked teeth: Teeth that are naturally out of shape, cracked, or chipped due to oral trauma can be brought back to their natural shape using dental crowns.
Gaps between adjacent teeth: The aesthetics of one's smile could be displeasing when there are large gaps between adjacent teeth. Gaps can be concealed by bonding veneers to the frontal surface of the teeth.
Worn-out teeth: When the cusp of teeth get worn out, they can affect the individual's biting and chewing ability. It is best to get them restored using crowns or onlays.
The restorations that we provide will be made from high quality, dental-grade ceramic material. They can be personalized to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth perfectly, thereby avoiding easy detection.
