Prosthodontics Q & A

What is prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics involves the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of oral conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and maxillofacial tissues. Prosthodontists specialize in the restoration of oral function and create dental restorations and prostheses, including complete dentures, implant-supported restorations, and crowns.

To become a prosthodontist, a dental degree and an additional four years of training in an ADA-approved program are typically required. Prosthodontists typically treat more complex dental cases.

A prosthodontist is specially trained in certain cosmetic dental treatments, such as dental implants, crowns, bridges, temporomandibular disorders, and dentures.

How is a prosthodontist different from other dental specialists?

A prosthodontist is the recognized expert when anything needs to be replaced in your mouth. This can range from a single tooth to multiple teeth, or all of your teeth in your mouth.

General dentists are more focused on dental cleanings, check-ups, and other more general dental treatments. Prosthodontists are the specialists dedicated and trained in restoring and replacing teeth.

The highly experienced Broadmoor Dental prosthodontists can help you determine if you need any prosthodontic treatments, such as dentures or crowns.

What’s involved with prosthodontics?

Prosthodontic care might involve several treatments or dental procedures to replace or restore your teeth and improve and protect your dental health. Depending on various factors, such as your individual concerns and dental health, your Broadmoor Dental provider might recommend a number of prosthodontic treatments.

Dental crowns

Broadmoor Dental offers the innovative Zirconia crowns that are derived from a very hard ceramic material and provide a strong base to cover or cap a broken, chipped, or damaged tooth.

Fixed bridges

Your Broadmoor Dental prosthodontist cements your fixed bridges onto your existing teeth or dental implants. Bridges are most commonly used to cover a space if you have one or more missing teeth.

Dentures and partial dentures

Dentures are prosthetic devices that are specially designed to replace your missing teeth. Dentures are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of your oral cavity. Traditional dentures are removable, but many different dentures are available, such as implant-supported, partial, and full. Some denture designs rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.

Porcelain veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the surface of your teeth to improve the aesthetics and function of your smile and protect the surface of your teeth from damage.
