What Does a Prosthodontist Do?

A prosthodontist is in essence an architect, who formulates a comprehensive treatment plan and informs the patient as to what is possible. Missing or defective teeth can be extremely detrimental to self-esteem and self-confidence. Using the latest technology, a prosthodontist can fill these gaps with functional, natural-looking teeth that boost confidence and enhance the smile. There are many reasons why a prosthodontist may be consulted, including the following:

  • Creation of partial or full sets of dentures
  • Desire to whiten the teeth or improve the aesthetics of the smile
  • Filling gaps created by one or more missing teeth
  • Interest in dental implants

What Treatments Can a Prosthodontist Perform?

When visiting a prosthodontist in Houston, there are a variety of treatments you may be able to undergo. Prosthodontic treatments are designed to be functional, long-lasting, and pleasing to the eye. These procedures can only be completed on generally healthy teeth. Issues like gum disease need to be controlled before prosthodontic treatments can begin. There are an ever-increasing number of hi-tech prosthodontic treatments available, including the following:

Dental Implants

Implants are designed to replace the natural teeth in the best possible way. Titanium roots are implanted in the jawbone in the same way as natural tooth roots. Implants look and feel the same as natural teeth.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are porcelain/ceramic covers that are bonded to the natural teeth. Veneers can instantly solve problems like uneven teeth, stained teeth, and chips and damage caused by general wear and tear.

Dental Crowns

Prosthetic crowns are generally made from porcelain, metal, or a combination of the two. They have been designed to mimic the natural crown (surface of the tooth) and can last for up to a decade, and possibly longer.

Dental Bridges

Conventional and cantilever bridges are used to support a prosthetic tooth. The natural teeth can support the bridge if they are in good condition, or dental implants may be used as anchors.

Complete Dentures

A complete set of dentures can be created for people who have no teeth due to gum disease or trauma. Complete dentures restore functionality to the mouth and make chewing and speaking easier.

Partial Dentures

Where many teeth have been lost, removable or fixed partial dentures can prove to be an excellent option. They enhance the aesthetics of the smile in addition to improving chewing abilities.

What Other Treatments Can a Prosthodontist Offer?

In addition to performing the treatments described above, the prosthodontist is adept at treating problems with the jaw (TMJ), alleviating severe snoring, managing sleep apnea, and reconstructing the teeth following oral cancer treatments. Generally, the prosthodontist works in combination with other dental health professionals to ensure the best possible restorative results are achieved.
