A Prosthodontist is a dentist that specializes in replacing missing or broken teeth and restoring smiles to their proper appearance and function.
The specialist dentist offers patients many solutions including dental implants, dentures, veneers, crowns, bridges and tooth coloured fillings. Some treatment solutions are removable and other fixed in the mouth. They use these treatments to restore the aesthetic appearance of the teeth. They also ensure that the top and bottom teeth work in harmony with each other. The Prosthodontist will advise the correct technique, system and type of treatment based upon their examination and assessment of each individual case.
In order to create stable functional and aesthetic teeth, the Prosthodontist needs to create a customized treatment plan involving the particular changes that the patient requires. This is different from a straightforward treatment planning. Often more complex treatment plans that involve many facets include cosmetics, bite, loss of teeth and loss of tooth structure require the expertise of a prosthodontist. It is common for a prosthodontist to work with other specialists to give the best end result to the patient.
