Recapture the health and appearance of your smile after tooth loss with Prosthodontics
Prosthetic dentistry is the replacement of missing teeth with either fixed or removable dentures. Tooth loss is something that affects millions of people every year; fortunately Prosthodontic Dentistry can help.
Natural teeth may have been lost due for many reasons, such as caries (dental decay), periodontal (gum) disease, or trauma. For people who are already edentulous (i.e. have no natural teeth), the objectives of prosthetic treatment are generally to improve: speech, appearance, chewing and biting, comfort and the ability to laugh, shout, kiss, etc., without the Denture becoming dislodged.
Along with the latest state-of-the-art technologies, Dentures have also improved in comfort, stability and longevity. Dentures are classified as partial or full:
Partial Dentures are made to replace a small proportion of lost teeth. They provide stability and support as they can be retained on adjacent natural teeth using the latest in dental technology.
A Complete Denture replaces all the teeth in one dental arch.
