Whether it is one missing tooth or an entire dentition ravaged by years of disease and abuse, modern dentistry can provide you with the smile and function you always wanted.
Prosthodontists are the dental specialists with extensive education and training to manage the failing dentition case.
There is no “one fit all ” solution to complex dental problems. Each case is different and should be treated differently. Many clinics nowadays claim to offer a one day solution to complex dental problems with “Teeth in a Day” or similar treatment options. While this is a valued service for some patients, we strongly believe that each case should be assessed individually to determine the best possible and most predictable outcome.
When you schedule your FREE CONSULTATION, we will evaluate your case and determined your dental and medical needs which will help us develop a customized treatment plan that fits your condition and budget.
When it comes to FAILING DENTITION, YOU NEED TO SEE a PROsthodontist
The ability to change lives through comprehensive care is truly a wonderful part of prosthetic dentistry. Prosthodontists are THE dental specialists with the best training and knowledge to tackle these complex cases. There are many challenges that face the practitioner when handling such cases and this is why you should only trust your care to someone with the advanced training, knowledge , and skills required for full moth reconstruction. In addition to a thorough understanding of the medical and dental implications of such treatment, the chief concerns and desires of the patient have to be understood and addressed properly. Other considerations need to be made with regard to full-arch or full-mouth comprehensive care:
- Will the care being considered be tolerated and accepted physiologically?
- Can the desired treatment be provided within the financial constraints that many patients are presenting with in the current economic times?
- What will be the restorative material choice?
- Is this a case that requires a change in the patient’s existing bite ?
- If the bite needs to be opened, how much is enough? How does one know if it is too much or too little?
All these items need to be planned, controlled, and addressed carefully. Failure to follow a meticulous and disciplined treatment protocol can lead to undesired consequences and complications that are often times difficult to fix.
