Common Prosthodontic Procedures
Are you experiencing issues with your teeth, such as missing, damaged, or worn-out teeth? Do you find it challenging to smile, eat, or speak comfortably? If so, you may benefit from a prosthodontic procedure. Prosthodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on restoring and replacing missing or damaged teeth, improving the function and aesthetics of your smile.
At Amber Hills Dental, we offer several prosthodontic procedures that can address various dental concerns, such as:
- Missing teeth
- Broken or damaged teeth
- Difficulty in chewing or speaking
- Aesthetic concerns
- Jaw pain or headaches
If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants are an excellent long-term solution. Implants are artificial tooth roots made of titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth, such as crowns or dentures, and prevent deterioration of your jawbone. Dental implants restore the appearance of your smile and your ability to chew and speak naturally.
Crowns are tooth-shaped caps that cover damaged or weakened teeth. They can restore a tooth's shape, size, strength, and appearance, allowing you to bite and chew without discomfort. Dental crowns are commonly used to treat teeth with extensive decay, fractures, or large fillings.
Dentures are removable replacements for missing teeth that restore your ability to chew and speak while preventing facial sagging. They come in two types: full dentures, which replace all teeth, and partial dentures, which replace only a few missing teeth.
A dental bridge fills in a gap from a missing tooth with an artificial tooth that is anchored to adjacent healthy teeth or dental implants. The artificial tooth is called a pontic and dental crowns cover the adjacent teeth or implants.
