Prosthodontics, Dental prosthesis


It is one specialty that aims to restore function and aesthetics as a result of the loss of one or more teeth. There are a variety of prostheses but we can divide them into two groups:

  • Fixed prosthesis: it is a prosthesis that can’t be removed by the patient, such as bridges. There is also a fixed prosthesis on implants either one or several implants. There is other reasons were we use veneers such as cosmetic reasons.
  • Dentures: those prostheses which can be easily removed by the patient. These prostheses returned masticatory function in addition to being withdrawn for rest of your gums and provide optimum hygiene. These dentures can be partial or total depending on the number of missing teeth.

It is very important to know that this specialty is working with the lab and is required a series of steps leading to the production of the prosthesis.

The American Dental Association does not recognize Cosmetic dentistry as a speciality. Prosthodontics is the only dental speciality under which the concentration of cosmetic/esthetic dentistry falls. General dentists may perform some simple cosmetic procedures. Consequently, there are questions regarding whether it is ethical for general dentists to treat “smile makeovers” or complex cosmetic and full-mouth reconstruction cases, as they are not qualified to address the complex needs of the patient. Likewise, there is no specialty recognized by the ADA for dental implants.
