Prosthetic Dentistry

Prosthetic Dentistry or prosthodontics describes any dental procedure that is being performed on multiple teeth, if not entire quadrants or even arches. Procedures that fall under Prosthetic Dentistry include Fixed Bridges, Removable Partial Dentures and Full Dentures. Dental Implants actually fall also under this category, but we have a separate section for this particular field of dentistry. that is, the specialty area of dentistry that involves the restoration of broken down or missing teeth using crowns, bridges, veneers, dentures or dental implants.

Prosthetic dentistry includes certain procedures like, bonded composite restorations, porcelain veneers, dental implant, crowns and bridgework, full mouth rehabilitation, smile design, enhancements for aged teeth, removable, partial or complete dentures, treatment of jaw disorders, snoring and sleep apnoea appliances and whitening.

Patients preparing for prosthetic dentistry need to go through certain level of treatments. Before the first consultation with you doctor, it is better have a basic understanding about prosthetic dentistry.

Prosthodontists work closely with their patients to develop a comprehensive treatment plan and to help patients understand what improvements are possible. Using cutting edge technologies, the prosthodontist is often viewed as the “architect” of a restorative dental treatment plan. Particularly for partially or completely edentulous (toothless) patients, a prosthodontist is typically the key treatment planner.

For five to seven days after surgery, your diet should be confined to soft foods. If stitches are present, they may need to be removed by your dentist; however, self-dissolving stitches that do not require removal are typically used.

If provisional restorations were placed along with the dental implant, it will be important to clean them as you would your natural teeth to ensure the best possible healing and fusing of the implant.

Dental cares after the prosthodontics are gum and teeth should be given extra care. Revised brushing techniques, reduce intake of hard food items, however, a quicker relief will be attained when the medication course is completed.
