Fixed and Removable Prosthodontics
Caring for Missing Teeth
We provide high levels of care to patients who have missing teeth. Our prosthodontists work with patients who have birth or congenital defects and other problems that occurred due to trauma or neglect. A broken smile can damage a person's image, reputation and self-esteem. Missing teeth can be very traumatic and it can affect an individual's outlook on life. This can cause significant damage to an individual in a physical, mental and emotional way.
People who have dental problems may have difficulties chewing food, loss of underlying bones, insufficient facial support, dysfunction and pain in the joints or jaw, and have trouble adapting or getting their dentures to function properly.
Our prosthodontists can help you throughout this entire process. We will be able to introduce several alternatives that may be available to you. These options include crowns, bridges, partial or full dentures, and dental implants. These are just some of the procedures you may be interested in. You will be able to select from a range of choices including those that are temporary and permanent fixes. We will also help you develop a comprehensive treatment plan and find innovative ways to improve your smile.
Remember that we are highly-trained professionals, and that we deal with people who require complex care, need rehabilitation after traumatic events, and have genetic defects. We use our special knowledge and skills to help build and restore people's smiles every day. We will help you setup your initial consultation, walk you through your entire procedure, and assist you with follow-up care. We know how to provide our clients with complex care and manage the most complicated dental procedures.
Other things that we can do include putting caps or crowns over teeth, concealing defects by placing veneers in the mouth, utilizing bonding technology to transform the shape or surface of dentition, and bleaching teeth to brighten or whiten them.
We are a resource to the community because we can help people manage and fix cosmetic problems and diagnose dental issues. Some people are born with genetic and congenital failures in the face, mouth and neck. Others may have experienced some sort of trauma, which will require surgical interventions. Prosthodontists can help resolve all of these issues and make people feel better about themselves.
You should contact us if you are unsatisfied with your current dental treatment; surgical intervention has not met your expectations; you need an expert to provide you with more care; you have severe tooth decay or dry mouth; or you have unresolved dental problems. Keeping a healthy smile is a necessity for good dental care.
Regain your self-confidence, improve your appearance, and restore your beautiful smile by contacting our prosthodontists today! We will get you back on the road to a happy, healthy smile.
