Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is the dental speciality which looks at the optimisation of your dental health often through the use of advanced crown and bridge based techniques. It goes hand in hand with dental implants and other dental specialties such as periodontics, where the specialty deals with the supporting tissues of the teeth (gums and bone).

 

Your prosthodontist will be able to provide you with a range of treatment options and they will also work closely with your general dentist as many parts of your initial treatment may be best carried out by your prosthodontist and/or your hygienist.

The initial stabilisation phase of treatment is required to ensure that the foundations of your dental health are secure before you embark on advanced dental treatment such as prosthodontics.
