Prosthodontic Treatment Q & A

What are prosthodontic treatments?

Prosthodontic procedures aim to restore proper function, support longevity, and improve the aesthetics of your smile. Numerous dental treatments fall under the umbrella of prosthodontics, and some common ones include:

  • Dental implants
  • Dental veneers
  • Ceramic or metal crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Full or partial dentures

Prosthodontics also include treatment for jaw problems, including temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, sleep apnea, snoring, and other issues. Another area of prosthodontic care involves full mouth restoration following treatment of oral cancers.

Why is it important to choose a dentist who specializes in prosthodontics?

Basic dentistry covers several preventive, restorative, and cosmetic treatments. However, prosthodontics are more specialized procedures that require additional training and experience.

Choosing a dentist who specializes in prosthodontics ensures the best results for your smile and your overall oral health. The specialty of prosthodontics is comparable to being an “architect” of the human mouth. In many ways, prosthodontics is as much an art as it is a science.

Dr. Barrera pursues ongoing educational opportunities to stay abreast of current innovations in prosthodontics. That dedication allows her to offer the patients in her care the most advanced procedures available.

What dental issues can prosthodontics improve?

Prosthodontics can address a wide range of dental problems regarding both form and function. Missing, broken, or otherwise damage teeth are not only unsightly, but they also lead to problems with eating and speaking. Restorations can bring back proper function in these areas.

Prosthodontics can improve numerous cosmetic issues, including:

  • Missing teeth
  • Broken teeth
  • Severely discolored teeth
  • Misalignment
  • Improper bite
  • Advanced decay
