What is Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is one of the branches of dentistry that deals with the replacement of missing teeth and the associated soft and hard tissues by prostheses (crowns, bridges, dentures) which may be fixed or removable, or may be supported and retained by implants.

Is prosthodontics the same as implants?

The field of prosthodontics relates to all dental procedures that involve repairing or replacing teeth with prosthetics. This includes things like dental crowns & bridges, dentures, and even dental implants.

Will the Prosthodontist complete all of my required Treatment?

Prosthodontists can be viewed as “architects” of your dental treatment. They have the vision of your final outcome, both the esthetics of your smile and the improved function of your bite. Often other dental specialists participate in treatment to help establish a solid foundation for your restorations. Every prosthodontist develops a treatment plan customized for each individual patient, and determine if treatment from additional specialists are necessary.
