The specialist area of dentistry known as prosthodontics deals with diagnosing, organizing, and carrying out restorative and cosmetic treatments. Following dental school, prosthodontists must complete three to four additional years of specialized training.
In essence, a prosthodontist is an architect who creates a thorough treatment plan and educates the patient on what is feasible. Self-confidence and self-esteem can be severely harmed by missing or damaged teeth. A prosthodontist can repair these gaps with functioning, realistic-looking teeth that improve the smile and confidence using the most recent technology.
A prosthodontist may be consulted for a variety of causes, including but not restricted to:
Making of partial or complete denture sets.
Aspire to make their teeth whiter or their smile more aesthetically pleasing.
Filling up the spaces left by a lost tooth or teeth.
Fascination with dental implants.
What procedures can a prosthodontist carry out?
Prosthodontic procedures are made to be durable, useful, and aesthetically appealing. Only teeth that are normally in good health can undergo these operations. Before beginning prosthodontic treatments, conditions like gum disease must be under control.
