What is prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a dental field recognized by the American Dental Association. It focuses on diagnosing, treating, restoring, and replacing missing or compromised teeth, oral tissues, or maxillofacial tissues. 

The goal of a prosthodontist is to design and fit oral prosthetics, like dentures or veneers, for looks, and more importantly, function, health, and comfort.

How are prosthodontists different from regular dentists?

To be called a prosthodontist, a dentist must complete (in addition to their regular dental program) a three-year prosthodontic graduate program accredited by the American Dental Association. 

During this time, they’re specially trained to identify oral problems and replace oral structures using dental crowns and bridges, dental implants, and dentures, among other methods, such as: 

  • Dental bonding
  • Enamel shaping
  • Fillings
  • Full-mouth reconstruction
  • Mouthguards
  • Maxillofacial prosthetics
  • Sealants
  • Splints
  • Veneers
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder treatment

Sharp Dentistry & Associates specializes in this type of dentistry, and the practice boasts numerous talented prosthodontists, including one maxillofacial prosthodontist.

Is prosthodontics right for me?

Do you think prosthodontics might be right for you? In general, prosthodontics may be right for you if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms or conditions:

  • Chipped, cracked, or broken teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • Loose or broken dentures

What will happen during a prosthodontics appointment?
