Understanding prosthodontics: a journey with our specialist dentist

Welcome to our specialist dentist Devon in the heart of the county. We pride ourselves on being a ‘Centre of Excellence’ at our dental Practice, offering a wide range of services, including general dentistry and specialist referrals. One of our key areas of expertise is prosthodontics, a field that we believe is vital to enhancing the oral health and overall wellbeing of our patients.

Delving into prosthodontics


Prosthodontics, for those unfamiliar with the term, is a specialised field of dentistry that focuses on the preparation, design, fabricating, and fitting of prosthetic replacements for teeth and sometimes parts of the jaw and gum line. These replacements, known as dental prostheses, can include crowns, bridges, and dentures.


The goal of prosthodontics is to restore function, comfort, appearance, and health to individuals who have missing or deficient teeth, as well as to those with oral and maxillofacial issues. It's a field that requires a deep understanding of dental anatomy, aesthetics, materials science, and biomechanics.


How we incorporate prosthodontics in our clinic


In our specialist dentist Devon, we use prosthodontics to help our patients regain their smiles and their confidence. Whether it's a single tooth that's been lost to decay or injury, or multiple teeth missing due to more complex issues, we're here to provide solutions that are both functional and attractive.


We begin with a comprehensive examination and consultation. This allows us to understand you as a person and your specific needs and to develop a personalised treatment plan. We then use the latest dental technology and techniques to create and fit your dental prosthesis.


Our prosthodontic treatments include crowns, which are used to cover or ‘cap’ a damaged tooth; bridges, which are used to replace one or more missing teeth; and dentures, which are removable replacements for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. We also offer implants, which are titanium screws that replace the root part of missing teeth.


The impact of prosthodontics on our patients' lives


The impact of prosthodontics on our patients' lives cannot be overstated. Beyond the obvious benefits of improved oral function and aesthetics, prosthodontics can also have profound psychological benefits.


Many of our patients come to us feeling self-conscious about their smiles. Missing or damaged teeth can affect not only how they eat and speak, but also how they interact with others. Through prosthodontics, we're able to restore their smiles and their confidence, allowing them to engage fully in their lives again.


Our promise to you


At our specialist dentist Devon, we're committed to providing high-quality, personalised dental care. We understand that every patient is unique, and we strive to meet your individual needs and expectations.


We're here to guide you through your prosthodontic journey, from your initial consultation to the fitting of your dental prosthesis and beyond. If you have any queries, we're here to answer your questions, explore your concerns, and ensure that you're comfortable and informed every step of the way.


In the end, our goal is to help you achieve a healthy, functional, beautiful smile that you can be proud of, because we believe that everyone deserves to smile with confidence. And with prosthodontics, we can make that a reality.
