Loss of natural teeth, whether in an accident or as part of the aging process, can be traumatic and affect your outlook on life. Simple pleasures – like smiling or going out to eat – become a source of stress or embarrassment. With the help of a prosthodontist, there are many options, if you have lost some or all your teeth.
Crowns, bridges, and full or partial dentures are just some of the procedures that can help you regain your smile and improve your appearance and self confidence.

Prosthodontics is the dental specialty pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes.
Full dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace all missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
Partial dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace one or more missing teeth; they are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.
A bridge is a fixed dental restoration (a fixed dental prosthesis) used to replace missing teeth by joining an artificial tooth permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants.
A dental crown is a tooth-shaped “cap” that is placed over a tooth — to cover the tooth to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.
