Prosthodontics: Just the Essential Informtaion

At Family Dental Associates, we get asked a lot of questions about some of the specialty treatments we offer- specifically Prosthodontics. It is for this reason that we want to revisit this topic, while providing good basic information, but at the same time, not overwhelming you with the gritty details of this type of dental work. So continue reading below as we give you more or less the essential information about prosthodontics you should know before you go to your local Margate, Coconut Creek, or Pompano Dentist.

Partial or Complete Smile Reconstruction

Prosthodontics is the replacement or repair of damaged or missing teeth and jaw structures using artificial materials. While general dentistry is great for keeping a smile clean and orthodontics is an ideal way to straighten misaligned teeth, when teeth are missing or significantly damaged, these two treatments are often not enough. And all too often, teeth do become irreparably damaged - either through congenital defects, traumatic injuries, surgery, or neglect. Prosthodontics is a powerful practice that can reconstruct a damaged smile by supplementing existing structures with prosthetic materials - or, in some cases, even replace them entirely. 

Prosthodontics has the power to give patients their smile back. Crowns and bridges can repair and replace damaged or missing teeth, complete and partial dentures can supplement an existing smile or create a new one altogether, and revolutionary procedures like full mouth restoration can give patients the hope and joy of a smile even after catastrophic damage.

While there are many functional and health benefits to prosthodontics - proper chewing, speaking, breathing, and even sleeping - its true power lies in the impact it can have on a patient's life. Our prosthodontics patients consistently tell us how wonderful it is to have a healthy smile again, and they report a boost of happiness and self-confidence that radiates through their personal and professional lives.
