Prosthodontics Can Help in Many Ways
As dental experts in state-of-the-art procedures and techniques, prosthodontists are able to treat many different types of dental conditions such as:
Complex care management involving multiple specialists
Post-oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care
Children born with missing teeth
TMJ - jaw joint problems
Snoring and sleep disorders
The prosthodontist's goal is integrating natural-looking replacement materials with the patient's original facial structure into a comfortable and pleasing appearance. Prosthodontists are exceptionally skilled in "creating generations of smiles." Whatever your age, you owe it to yourself to see how a specialist in tooth restoration and tooth replacement can help you.
Dentures are an appliance that replace the missing teeth in the mouth. Full, or complete dentures consist of upper and lower prosthetic teeth. They are usually reserved as a last resort. They have greatly improved from their original designs. Better materials and technologies have allowed dentists to fit them comfortably with a completely natural appearance.
Who Can Benefit From Dentures?
Dentures were designed for people who have lost all of their teeth. These types of dentures are called complete dentures being placed in the bone under the dentures. In some cases, complete dentures can be given additional support by the use of implants.
