When you want the best, you need to go to the best. Most dentists are skilled in certain areas of dental work, but not to the degree a prosthodontist is. Much of the work we do is referred from dentists who cannot undertake such complicated surgeries. 


Why Visit a Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a dental specialist who focuses on the restoration and replacement of teeth, while a general dentist provides a wide range of dental services. Here are some reasons why you might visit a prosthodontist instead of a general dentist:

  1. Complex cases: If you have a complex dental issue, such as severe tooth loss, jaw problems, or a complicated dental restoration, a prosthodontist has the specialized training and expertise to handle these cases.
  2. Dental implants: Prosthodontists are experts in placing and restoring dental implants, which are a popular and effective solution for missing teeth.
  3. Cosmetic dentistry: Prosthodontists are skilled in creating natural-looking, high-quality restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and veneers, to improve the appearance of your smile.
  4. Dentures: If you need full or partial dentures, a prosthodontist can design and fit them to ensure optimal comfort, function, and aesthetics.
  5. TMJ disorders: Prosthodontists are trained to diagnose and treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, which can cause pain and difficulty with jaw movement.
  6. Collaborative care: Prosthodontists often work closely with other dental specialists, such as oral surgeons and periodontists, to provide comprehensive, multidisciplinary care for patients with complex dental needs.

While general dentists can handle many dental issues, prosthodontists have the specialized training and expertise to manage more complex cases and provide high-quality, customized dental restorations.

What are the benefits of prosthodontics?

Prosthodontists are the experts in correct diagnosis of the dental issues for the patient, which is the requirement for the right treatment. Prosthodontists can provide highly esthetic results as well as optimal chewing ability through different types of restorations. In some cases, treatments restore or replace teeth while leaving some of your natural teeth in place, meaning each tooth is structurally sound and supported by properly aligned adjacent teeth.

Replacing missing teeth improves your smile, enhances confidence and makes you more comfortable in work and social settings. A prosthodontist focuses on the forest behind the tree and provides the most cost and time effective option for the patient. Prosthodontists possess every possible treatment option and decide the best for each patient.

Oral appliances are also part of prosthodontic care. For those who suffer from conditions like sleep apnea or bruxism (teeth grinding), oral appliances are a non-invasive treatment option that truly delivers. Maxillofacial prosthetics is an area of highly specialized oral appliances for specific patients with missing oral structures due to trauma or previous surgery.

The main advantage of a prosthodontist compared to a general dentist is the experience and the knowledge in complicated cases and full mouth reconstructions. Those procedures can involve changing the dimensions of the face by opening the patient’s bite or restoring severely worn down teeth. In addition to the previously mentioned, the prosthodontist decides what other dental specialties will have to be involved in the treatment and at what sequence.

Why should you visit a prosthodontist?

Prosthodontists are specialty dentists with advanced training in implant, crown, and bridge work, providing expert care in complex reconstructive and cosmetic dental procedures. If you have missing teeth, severe tooth damage, or need comprehensive treatment to restore optimal oral function and aesthetics, visit a prosthodontist that has the specialized skills and knowledge to meet your needs.

What are some common prosthodontic treatments?

Many different treatments fall under the umbrella of prosthodontics. Some examples of prosthodontic treatment options include:

  • Complete or partial dentures
  • Dental crowns and bridges
  • Implant placement and restoration
  • Oral splints and nightguards
  • Maxillofacial prostheses
  • Cosmetic veneers

When you come for a face-to-face consultation, your dentist discusses all available treatment options, including what to expect if you forego treatment altogether. Patient education is an essential part of Novudentics, and there is always time for you to ask questions or express concerns as they arise.
