A Prosthodontist undertakes the process of rebuilding or replacement of missing teeth. They are trained to deal with the aesthetic and functional challenges that replacement of teeth present.
A Specialist Prosthodontist can be required for more complex restorative cases. For example, those involving severe tooth wear, replacing multiple missing teeth, or in aesthetically demanding cases. A specialist prosthodontist will be able to plan and execute very complex cases in a structured and predictable manner.
Examples of fixed options involve the use of white fillings, crowns, onlays, veneers and bridgework that can be placed on teeth or dental implants. Removable options involve partial or full dentures that can also utilize dental implants to enhance their retention and support (if required).
As expected with all types of prosthetic work, Prosthodontists also address and deal with complications that can happen.
