Restoration and replacement of teeth

Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is the dental specialty for the restoration and replacement of teeth. Prosthodontic treatments include veneers, crowns, bridges, dental implants and dentures. Treatment can be for a single tooth at a time but it can also be on a more comprehensive scale where it involves several and sometimes all teeth.

The aim of prosthodontic treatment is to provide the patient with an aesthetic and functional set of teeth and treatment usually addresses specific dental concerns. Where cosmetic changes to teeth may be a choice on the part of the patient, prosthodontic treatment rarely is. Teeth are important in every aspect of our daily lives and worn, broken or missing teeth can be the cause of great concern and unhappiness. The outcome of prosthodontic treatment is therefore frequently described as life-changing by patients who no longer have to live with fears of public embarrassment and limitations.

PROSTHODONTIC TREATMENTS

Crowns

Dental crowns are restorations that protect damaged, cracked or broken down teeth. A crown strengthens your existing, damaged tooth so as to preserve its functionality. Dental crowns are also commonly known as caps (because a crown sits over your existing tooth, covering the entire outer surface).

Bridges

Dental bridges are false teeth, which are anchored onto neighboring teeth in order to replace one or more missing teeth. The false tooth is known as a pontic and is fused in between two crowns on either side. The crowns serve as anchors which sit on the natural teeth on either side of the gap, thereby bridging the teeth together.

Dentures

There are many types of dentures but they all share the common goal of replacing missing teeth in as comfortable and aesthetic way as possible. Partial dentures replace a few missing teeth while full dentures are used by patients who have lost all their teeth in either one or both jaws.
