Restoring Optimum Function and Appearance to Your Smile
Prosthodontics, also known as prosthetic dentistry, is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). Prosthodontists are qualified to offer service in state-of-the-art procedures and techniques to restore aesthetics, strength, and stability to your smile.
Prosthodontic treatment includes:
- Implants: When you’re looking for options to replace missing teeth, we offer many choices depending on your individual needs. Implants are a safe and proven way to replace your missing teeth without involving or compromising any adjacent teeth.
- Bridges: If you're missing one or more teeth, you may notice a difference in your ability to chew and speak. Bridges are a great option to help restore your smile.
- Crowns: A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over the tooth to restore its shape, size, strength, and appearance.
- Dentures: Gum disease, injury, and tooth decay can all cause a loss of your natural teeth. However, we can bring back the smile on your face with dentures to restore your missing teeth.
- Occlusal Disease Treatment: Occlusal disease is caused by a malocclusion, or improperly aligned bite. Patients with occlusal disease can experience symptoms of excessive tooth wear, sensitivity, muscle pain, and TMJ pain.
- TMJ/TMD Treatment: Millions of Americans suffer from chronic facial and neck pain as well as recurring headaches. In some cases, this pain is due to Temporomandibular Disorder, or TMD.
