Prosthodontics and Periodontics
What is Prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics is the area of dentistry that specializes in mouth restorations. A prosthodontist assists with the restoration of natural teeth and replaces missing or removed teeth. Prosthodontists are skilled in dental work including crowns, bridges and dentures.
Dentists refer patients who have undergone surgery for oral cancer to a prosthodontist who will restore the portion of the mouth removed due to oral cancer.
The main goals a prosthodontist works to achieve for each patient include comfort, natural appearance and normal oral function. If you require oral restoration or have questions regarding the various prosthodontics options available, contact our offices today.
What is Periodontics?
For patients who have the advanced stages of gum disease, a dentist often refers them to a specialist in periodontics, which is the area of dentistry that focuses on the tissue that supports and surrounds the teeth. Periodontists specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating diseases of the gums, known as periodontal diseases. Periodontal treatments range from simple cleanings to bone and soft tissue grafting, and can also include more complex bone surgeries.
Periodontists are one of two dental specialists trained to surgically place dental implants.
If patients have lost a tooth that requires restoration, your dentist usually refers you to a periodontist for tooth replacement via dental implants.
Periodontists maintain the health of the gums and surrounding tissues, while addressing the aesthetics and function of those areas of the mouth. Learn more about periodontics by contacting our offices today.
