Why do I need prosthodontic care?
When the conditions of your teeth, jaws, face and any oral tissues are compromised you may wish to seek a prosthodontic assessment.
Teeth may be missing or impaired due to an accident, poor oral hygiene and habits over the years, or certain genetic issues. Oral and maxillofacial - or jaw and face - tissues may need prosthodontic treatment for the same reasons.
If you believe that something needs to be replaced in your mouth, a prosthodontist is the specialized dentist you want to speak with to take care of your issue.
What are some prosthodontic treatments?
There are many ways a prosthodontist may want to address your situation. Some treatments and procedures include:
inlays and onlays
temporomandibular disorders (TMJ)
