Prosthodontics


Overview:

Reviewed by: Dr. Kristen Dority

Prosothodontics is the dental specialty that uses artificial substitutes or prostheses to restore and maintain oral function, comfort, and appearance. In particular, prosthodontists tend to be experienced in placing dental implants, as well as crowning and bridging teeth.

Detailed Information:
Prosthodontists, like orthodontists and periodontists, are specialists trained in a specific field of dentistry and have taken extended courses of training generally culminating in master’s degrees.

More adults are keeping their natural teeth as they age, and many of these will find that the field of prosthodontics is there to help them replace either single or multiple teeth in a direct and longterm manner.

While prosthodontics such as implants are expensive to install, over the long term they can bring years of satisfaction and promote self-confidence. If individuals are scrupulous with home care, eating habits and dental checkups, prosthodontic appliances can offer lasting solutions for impaired tooth function and appearance.

Yes it is worth it. As long as the result is that you have whiter teeth.
