Prosthodontics

What is Prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics is the specialist field of dentistry that relates to rebuilding natural teeth and restoring missing teeth with artificial (prosthetic) replacements.

This may involve a routine procedure such as making a crown for a damaged tooth or it could involve more complex procedures, such as full mouth reconstruction or treating facial deformities.

If you’ve been in an accident that chipped or broke one or more of your teeth, you would see a Prosthodonist. Other possible reasons for damaged teeth include age, excessive wear, disease, and decay. A prosthodontic specialist will help you come up with the best way to restore the function and appearance of your teeth.

What is a Prosthodontist?
A Prosthodontist is a specialist dentist who deals with the replacement of missing teeth and related mouth or jaw structures by bridges, dentures or prostheses. They receive an additional three years of training after dental school to specialise in this field.

Treatments that fall under the care of a Prosthodontist include:

  • Aesthetic dentistry
  • Dental implants
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Re-treatment of failing dentistry
  • Complete and partial dentures
  • Tooth wear

I’d like to say thank you for sorting out and replacing my tooth. You are the kindest, most gentle dentist I have ever used and I would have absolutely no problems in recommending you

I recently had a root canal re-done which I was a little nervous about. Wilfred was so calm, he explained the procedure to me all the way, and he was so thorough.
