Why You Need to See a Prosthodontist

Posted on 12/19/2022 by Front Desk
Why You Need to See a ProsthodontistThe dental faculty is divided into several categories, with a specialist for every level of dentistry medicine. A prosthodontist is among those who fall under this category since they are dentists who specialize in the treatment of complex facial matters and dental complications. This ranges from the replacement of lost or damaged teeth and restoration using various dental appliances. Prosthodontists are trained in bridges, dental implants, crowns, dentures, and many more.

If you need dental implants or other dental appliances, you will likely be referred to a prosthodontist. The services offered in prosthodontics can be compared to cosmetic dentistry since the restoration and replacement work help you avoid dental complications but also helps improve the patient's aesthetics.

What Does a Prosthodontics Do?

Although most people consider prosthodontists equal to general dentists, the reality is that prosthodontists have specialized in repairing your natural teeth and replacing extracted or missing teeth using artificial fixtures such as caps, implants, crowns, or dentures. Aside from improving your oral health and appearance, other specially trained prosthodontists work with patients with neck and head deformities, replacing missing parts of the face and jaw.

Reasons to See a Prosthodontist

There are many reasons why a person is inclined to visit a prosthodontist's office. Whether after a severe accident involving the patient's mouth, cosmetic cause, or congenital condition, you need to see a prosthodontist. Although general dentists can provide these services, a prosthodontist is extensively trained in the special techniques used to treat complex dental complications.

A licensed prosthodontist offers several services, including placement and fitting of implants, traumatic injury repairs, and the treatment of jaw, snoring, or sleep issues. A prosthodontist can also perform oral cancer reconstruction, addressing any cosmetic concerns that the patient has. A professional prosthodontist offers specialized treatment based on the assessment of your condition and the procedures required.
