Posted on 4/10/2023 by Front Desk
3 Questions to Ask Before Committing to Prosthodontic TreatmentIf you are considering prosthodontic treatment, asking yourself some questions first is essential. What are your goals for treatment? How much do you know about the treatment process? And how much time are you willing to commit to treatment? In this post, we will explain these questions and more. We will also provide information on the different types of prosthodontic treatments available. Thus, if you are thinking about getting prosthetic dental work done, read this post!

What Are the Goals for Treatment?

The basic step is to consult with a prosthodontist to discuss your goals for treatment. Whether you're looking to improve the function or aesthetics of your smile, it's essential to set expectations for what can be desired through prosthodontic treatment. For example, you may want the treatment for purely cosmetic reasons, or you may need it to improve the ability to eat and speak.

What Is the Treatment Process?

The dentist will take an impression of your teeth, which will be used to make a model. This model is then used to create a custom dental appliance specifically designed to fit your mouth and bite. The appliance is usually made of porcelain or ceramic and is attached to the existing teeth with metal clasps or bonding. The entire process usually takes several visits to complete. Prosthodontic treatment can correct various dental problems, including missing teeth, cracked or broken teeth, misaligned teeth, and more.

What Are the Different Types of Prosthodontic Treatments Available?

You can choose dental implants for a more permanent solution or opt for removable dentures. There are also fixed bridges, cemented in place, and partial dentures clipped to your existing teeth. Your expert prosthodontist will work with you to determine the best course of treatment based on your individual needs.

Our dentists have been trained for years to perfect their skills in dental prosthetics. You can consult with our board-certified prosthodontists before making final decisions about your treatment.
