As prosthodontists, we here at Central Dental Specialists offer restorative, cosmetic, and reconstructive services. The type of treatment you need is dictated by your situation: the number of missing teeth, the number of damaged teeth, and the severity of the damage. Whether you need a full mouth reconstruction or a single crown, our job is to get your smile back on track!
One of our most common and conventional treatment options for patients with missing teeth is a removable denture. We offer both partial and complete removable dentures.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns and dental bridges are two of the most common restorations available today. We specialize in both of these appliances because they are time-tested and effective solutions. Whether you have a problematic or missing tooth, our restorative treatments can get your smile back on track!
When a tooth has a deep cavity, a crown and buildup are usually needed to restore the tooth. If the cavity extends too far below the gums, it becomes impossible to predictably make a crown that will last for any length of time. Performing crown lengthening where indicated improves the prognosis for the tooth.
The temporomandibular joint, or TMJ for short, is one of the most complex joints in the body. This complex series of ligaments, muscles, discs, and bones serve as a hinge-like mechanism that connects the upper and lower jaws. In other words, our TMJ allows us to move our lower jaw up, down, and side-to-side. Any problem that prevents the TMJ from working properly is known as a TMJ disorder or TMD.
Full Mouth Reconstruction
Full mouth reconstruction is a term that encompasses a variety of different treatment methods for restoring or replacing a person’s entire set of teeth. The goal of full mouth reconstruction is to not only restore the appearance of your smile, but the complete function of your mouth and teeth as well.
What Is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontics is a dental specialty concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving missing, misshapen, or insufficient teeth, jaw structures, or oral and maxillofacial tissues. Prosthodontists treat a wide variety of dental issues, from cleft palates to TMJ to cosmetic concerns.
