Prosthetic Dentistry

If you are missing a tooth due to an accident, tooth decay, or a congenital condition, you can receive an artificial replacement tooth through prosthetic dentistry. There are several types of prosthetics available, including solutions to repair teeth that are too damaged for fillings.

Fixed Crowns

Crowns are an option for teeth damaged by considerable decay. A crown will strengthen what remains of your tooth and improve appearances. Crowns can also replace missing teeth when attached to an implant.


Bridges work much the same way as crowns, the only difference is that they are fixed to teeth on either side of the missing tooth with crowns. This allows them to fill the gap of several missing teeth.

Partial Denture

Partial dentures are removable prosthetics used to replace a number of missing teeth. They consist of a plate of acrylic plastic or metal with artificial teeth attached.

Complete Denture

If you are missing all your teeth, you will need a complete denture. Again, this type of prosthetic is removable for cleaning, although it may be bonded to your mouth with a few implants.

Receiving a Dental Prosthetic

The process for receiving dental prosthetic differs according to the type of solution. Usually, you will require a few visits to the dentist for preparation and fitting. You may also need to return several times to ensure the prosthetic remains comfortable and to allow your dentist to check if it requires any adjustments. Most dental prosthetics last a lifetime, provided you maintain good oral hygiene and follow your dentist’s care advice.
