Prosthodontics

Please select a topic below for animations and to learn more about each aspect of Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is one of nine dental specialities recognised by the General Dental Council of Great Britain and the American Dental Association. It is the branch of dentistry specialising in the restoration and maintenance of oral function, comfort, appearance and health of the patient via the restoration or replacement of teeth.

Extensive training and education provide Prosthodontists with the skills for restoring optimum function and aesthetics. The techniques used include provision of dental crowns, dental bridges, dental veneers, dental inlays, and full or partial removable dentures (plates). The speciality of prosthodontics also includes the treatment of TMD-jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the structures of the mouth and teeth, snoring and sleep disorders, oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care.

A detailed analysis of dental problems is made with particular attention to the concerns of the individual patient as well as the history of previous dental treatment. Diagnostic information is gathered including examination, radiographs, photographs and casts of the mouth. Collation of this information allows a comprehensive evaluation to be made in coordination with the referring dentist, and other dental specialists as required. The Prosthodontist will explain the various treatment options that are appropriate to the diagnosis. A written report is usually provided outlining the nature of the dental problem and the treatment options, including an estimate of all fees and the anticipated outcome.

The development of predictable integration of titanium implants has provided major advantages for the secure retention and support of fixed false teeth. These are used where appropriate, however it is often possible to achieve substantial advantages without implant placement, by careful application of specialist prosthodontic techniques.
