What types of treatment are available from a Prosthodontist in Pasadena, CA?

Having a beautiful smile is not just about aesthetics, your smile is also important to overall health, confidence, and hygiene. Prosthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on teeth that are either functionally or cosmetically deficient. Prosthodontists receive additional training beyond general dental school that leaves them uniquely qualified to diagnose and treat patients with a variety of issues such as tooth loss, maxillofacial problems, TMJ, traumatic injuries, and more.  If you are looking for experts in the Pasadena, CA area to help you with complex restorative or cosmetic dental services, the team at Pasadena Prosthodontics & General Dentistry are here to help.

Prosthodontist treatment from Pasadena Prosthodontics & General Dentistry improves function of the teeth.

How does a Prosthodontist differ from a general dentist?

The term “Prostho” comes from Latin, meaning to add or replace. “Dentist” is derived from the Greek word for teeth. So, literally translated, a prosthodontist is an expert in replacing teeth (as well as gum tissue) in the mouth.

All prosthodontists receive the same training as general dentists but go on to complete several years of advanced training. The goal of prosthodontics, or prosthetic dentistry, is to focus on restoring form, function, and aesthetics to the smile.

Prosthodontists understand the various problems that can develop because of missing teeth and a deteriorating jaw structure. As such, prosthodontics involves many different types of treatments including:

  • Bridges – A dental bridge is used to replace missing teeth with natural looking artificial teeth, literally bridging the gap where natural teeth were one located.
  • Crowns – A dental crown can be used to improve the appearance of a tooth or strengthen a tooth that is worn, broken, or damaged by tooth decay. They are also part of a dental bridge.
  • Dental Implants – A dental implant is the only permanent solution for missing teeth. Implants replace the missing root and can be used for a single tooth or for an entire arch of teeth.
  • Malocclusion treatment – Treating misalignment of the upper and lower arches can improve oral health, strengthen jaw muscles, and eliminate symptoms of TMJ.
