What is prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is the specialty of dentistry that deals with the design and manufacture of dental prostheses that will help the patient to recover the correct functionality and aesthetics of the teeth altered by the loss of one or more teeth.

Depending on the case, prosthodontists will recommend the most appropriate type of dental prosthesis and will ensure that it is made with the highest quality.

Therefore, they must have a good knowledge of all fixed prostheses, such as bridges and implants, as well as partial or total removable prostheses.

First, to rehabilitate a patient’s teeth, the prosthodontist performs the curative treatment of the damaged tooth or teeth (extractions, root canals, implant placement, and, once all the tissues are recovered, they start the process to restore both the appearance and the correct function of the teeth by replacing the missing teeth.

To do this, they work with trusted dental technicians, technicians who are responsible for the development of prostheses following the indications of the dentist.

What are the benefits of dentures?

Dental prostheses are the ideal treatment to replace lost natural teeth with artificial pieces to restore the chewing function of the dentition and, on the other hand, to improve dental aesthetics.

  • The prosthesis of such improve the quality of life of patients.
  • They make it possible to recover the functionality of the mouth: the patient will be able to chew food normally again.
  • Perform correct phonetics.
  • They integrate perfectly with the patient’s physiognomy.
  • They are hygienic and easy to clean.

How prosthodontics is performed

The dentist makes a mold of the bite and the area of the dentition to be replaced, so that the technicians can manufacture the appropriate dental prosthesis to replace the missing teeth or the entire dentition, using the technique of casting, so that it fits perfectly both in the place of the arch that corresponds to it and with the opposing arch.

It will also provide the prosthesis with a color that is practically identical to that of the piece it replaces.

After its placement, the dentist will define a protocol for monitoring and maintenance of the prosthesis to ensure its functionality at all times and, if necessary, proceed to its repair or replacement.
