What is prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a specialty in the field of dentistry that deals with resolving issues associated with missing or impaired teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues with biocompatible substitutes. Prosthodontists have graduated from dental school and then have had three additional years of advanced education and training in a post-graduate program that has been accredited by the American Dental Association.

Alicia Dental addresses these areas as a whole connected region to determine the potential causes and appropriate treatment of what is ailing you. Our process includes:

  • diagnosing the issue
  • planning treatment
  • establishing an appropriate rehabilitation routine
  • determining how to maintain oral functionality
  • managing comfort
  • addressing oral appearance
  • restoring and maintaining health and wellness

With our advanced technology and over 25 years in the field, we are able to deliver you with the best prosthodontic care Laguna Hills, CA has to offer.

Why do I need prosthodontic care?

When the conditions of your teeth, jaws, face and any oral tissues are compromised you may wish to seek a prosthodontic assessment.

Teeth may be missing or impaired due to an accident, poor oral hygiene and habits over the years, or certain genetic issues. Oral and maxillofacial – or jaw and face – tissues may need prosthodontic treatment for the same reasons.

If you believe that something needs to be replaced in your mouth, a prosthodontist is the specialized dentist you want to speak with to take care of your issue.
