Prosthodontics - Dental Negligence Compensation Claim Solicitors


Prosthodontics is also called prosthetic dentistry. It is one of a number of dental specialties. It is the area of dentistry most associated with the diagnosis and treatment of people who have missing teeth, deficient teeth or oral tissues made from biocompatible substitutes. This type of dentist is a specialist in replacing and restoring teeth that have been damaged after dental caries or a dental injury. The goal of a prosthodontist is to restore your smile through the use of dental implants, to treat temporomandibular joint disease, and to fix problems with occlusion of the teeth with prosthetics.

Maxillofacial Prosthetics

There is a sub-specialty in the field of prosthodontics, known as maxillofacial prosthetics. Dentists who deal with maxillofacial prosthetics need extra training in order to deal with congenital diseases of the face, mouth and face cancer problems and traumatic injury to the face. These dentists are able to fit a patient for speech-aid prostheses and mandibular-resection prostheses. They also work with doctors in order to fit artificial eyes and noses on patients with cancer or severe facial injuries. They work alongside occupational therapists, physiotherapists, oncologists, ENT specialists and speech therapists as well as with plastic surgeons.

Jaw Reconstruction

A prosthodontist can reconstruct a jaw that has been damaged by penetrating injury, such as a gunshot or a knife wound. They can implant teeth and they can fit a person with dentures if they desire or need them. Prosthodontists can also handle jaw problems due to cancer. They can restore the jaw to its normal shape and can recreate the perfect smile.

Restorative Dentistry

Some prosthodontics treatments include restorative treatment for people who have no teeth or are missing one or more teeth. They place dental implants including the crown overlay. The results are usually excellent, with a 'fake tooth' that looks and acts like a real tooth.

Dental Crowns

Ceramic and metal ceramic dental crowns are also within the realm of a prosthodontist. They create tooth prosthetics that can easily look and feel as though you have a normal mouth. These crowns are put in whenever a tooth fractures or whenever there is severe dental caries. Crowns last about ten years before they have to be replaced. Most crowns are particularly aesthetically pleasing, especially when done by a prosthodontist.

Dental Bridges

Dental bridges are also in the realm of prosthodontics work. These can be used in a less expensive way to replace a missing tooth. Dental bridges can be removable or non-removable. The non-removable bridges are affixed to two crowns on each side of the missing tooth or teeth.
