Our prosthodontists are highly capable of taking care of all your dental needs. But when it comes to replacing missing teeth and needing a fixed restoration, our team of specialists is who you’ll want to see.
What is a Prosthodontist?
After graduation, a dentist who aspires to be a prosthodontist must attend an additional three years of schooling to receive specialized education and training in the field of dental reconstruction and rehabilitation techniques.
More specifically, a prosthodontist is a tooth replacement expert and a specialist on jaw problems. Their intense background allows them to not only ensure you have a healthy and highly functional bite, but to give you a smile that’s aesthetically pleasing as well. Prosthetics should look natural, appealing, and be one of a kind.
Prosthodontists can perform a variety of procedures, design, and fabricate custom restorations that will improve the appearance and functionality of your smile. For example, they are experts in completing fillings, bonding, dentures, partial dentures, veneers, crowns, bridges, and dental implants. In addition to replacing missing teeth, our team of specialists can fill in gapped teeth and straighten misshapen teeth.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMJ, occurs when the jaw joint becomes inflamed. The pain associated with TMJ is severe and can restrict you from being able to completely open your mouth.
A prosthodontist can work with you to find a solution that will reduce or eliminate your discomfort. In most cases, we will recommend a nightguard (or splint) to wear while you sleep. On occasion, a combination of things is needed like taking part in a physical therapy regimen or being prescribed medication.
