About the clinic

So, what’s a “prosthodontist”? Prosthodontics is a broad specialty encompassing a wide variety of treatments. It is a discipline of dentistry concerned with the impact of tooth or tissue damage as well as partial or complete loss of teeth on oral function. It deals this largely through prosthetic replacement, thereby maintaining functions of speech and chewing, comfort, appearance and overall health of our patients. This specialized approach does not just prescribe treatment based on what a patient may demand. It critically evaluates and assesses whether more good than harm is done by inserting artificial devices and prostheses made from alloplastic materials at all times. Prosthodontists are masters of complete oral rehabilitation as they are dedicated to the highest standards of care in the restoration and replacement of teeth. Postgraduate programs in prosthodontics include lectures and seminars, laboratory and clinical training in esthetics/cosmetics, crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, complete and removable partial dentures, dental implants, TMD‐jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the mouth’s structures, congenital or birth anomalies to teeth, snoring, sleep disorders, and oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care. Maxillofacial Prosthetics is a branch of prosthodontics that requires one additional year of fellowship training with a focus on treatment of patients who have acquired and congenital defects of the head and neck region due to cancer, surgery, trauma, and birth defects.
