Restoration of Oral Function
Cosmetic dentistry, implants, and joint problems all fall under the field of prosthodontics, and it is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Prosthodontists specialize in the restoration of oral function by creating prostheses and restorations using:
- Cosmetic procedures to straighten teeth and restore normal bite patterns
- Implant retained/supported restorations
- Complete or partial dentures

For years, tooth replacement meant removable dentures or bridges. But today, a new breakthrough known as dental implants give you replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. A dental implant consists of a crown attached to an artificial tooth root, permanently replacing both parts of your missing teeth. Dental implants are supported restorations that have a very high success rate.
Advanced dental problems bring with them complex diagnostic and treatment issues, consequently, prosthodontists regularly lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other health professionals to develop solutions to more complex dental needs. Prosthodontists are frequently called upon to treat complex cases:
An immediate denture may be the optimal solution when complete extractions of your remaining teeth are unavoidable. An immediate denture will allow you to avoid the embarrassment of being without teeth. First, impressions are taken of your existing teeth and gums to create accurate duplicates. At your extraction appointment, your immediate dentures are inserted creating a natural smile.
