What is Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a branch of dentistry that specialises in looking after both the appearance and function of your teeth and gums. Prosthodontists focus on highly specialised elements of dentistry and restoration and are often the dental professional who will lead your treatment journey from diagnosis, treatment planning, and rehabilitation and maintenance of oral function to achieve comfort, appearance and health.

Prosthodontists treat a variety of issues, whether it is a complete “smile makeover” to enhance your appearance, jaw alignment issues after trauma or even congenital conditions affecting maxillofacial tissues. Prosthodontists will work very closely with other specialties such as Periodontists, Oral Surgery and Endodontists, and laboratories to restore optimal aesthetics and function.

Most prosthodontists have a special understanding of the intricate dynamics that support a healthy, functional mouth as they undergo extensive specialised training in contemporary, state-of-the-art procedures and techniques, which allows them to successfully treat the most complex dental conditions.
