Prosthodontics Q & A

What is prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of oral conditions associated with missing teeth and maxillofacial tissues. Prosthodontists specialize in restoring oral function and creating dental prostheses and restorations, such as complete dentures, crowns, bridges, and implant-supported restorations.

In addition to a dental degree, a prosthodontist typically undergoes three to four years of training in an American Dental Association-approved program. Prosthodontists usually treat dental rehabilitative cases that are more complex. 

Why would I need to see a prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is the expert you turn to when you need to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of your teeth.

General dentists focus on checkups, dental cleanings, and other more general dental treatments. Prosthodontists are specialists who are trained to restore and replace teeth.

Your provider can help you determine if you need any prosthodontic treatments, such as crowns or dentures. Just For Your Smile can treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, restore missing teeth and jaw structures, beautify your smile, and more.

The providers also offer effective dental implants and bone grafting when needed.

What’s involved with prosthodontics?

Prosthodontic care might involve several dental procedures or treatments to replace or restore your teeth and enhance and protect your dental health, including:

Dental crowns

Just For Your Smile provides CEREC® crowns that are made from a beautiful ceramic material. CEREC crowns can usually be created and placed on the same day. A crown is a great way to cover and protect a broken, chipped, or damaged tooth.

Fixed bridges

Your dentist cements fixed bridges onto your dental implants or existing teeth. If you have one or more missing teeth, bridges are most commonly used to cover a space.

Porcelain veneers

Veneers are wafer-thin porcelain shells that cover the front surface of your teeth. Veneers can improve the function and look of your smile and help protect your teeth.

Dentures and partial dentures

Dentures are prosthetic devices that replace your missing teeth. Dentures are supported by the surrounding hard and soft tissues of your oral cavity. Traditional dentures are removable, but you can choose from many different dentures, such as partial, full, and implant-supported. Some dentures bond or clasp onto your dental implants or your teeth.
