What is a Specialist Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontics or Restorative dentistry is a term used by dental professionals that covers a range of treatments that are used to replace missing or damaged teeth. Fillings, crowns (‘caps’), bridges and implants are all common types of restorative treatment options.
Restorative dentistry often involves being treated by more than one dental professional. That’s because restorative dentistry covers a range of specialisms which come together to form a treatment plan to restore or rehabilitate a patient’s oral and dental tissues lost as a result of disease or illness - inherited or acquired. Treatment can include anything from
The patients referred to us for restorative dentistry from across Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire often require complicated and multiple treatments in order to restore their teeth to a good functional and aesthetic outcome.
Our Specialist Prosthodontist, Dr Preeyan Patel, often facilitates the management of patients’ complex restorative dentistry plans. These plans often require a range of specialist input.
"I have an eye for detail but also thoroughly enjoy the artistic and technical aspects of creating natural and long lasting functional restorations"
Types of Prosthodontic or Restorative Dentistry treatment options
Some of the most common treatment options patients experience as part of their restorative dentistry plans include:
Traditional fillings involve managing a tooth which was affected by dental decay. With the improvement in adhesive techniques the same tooth-coloured restorative materials can be used to make subtle or comprehensive changes to front teeth to improve the appearance of your smile.
A crown is a tooth-shaped cap that is placed over a tooth. It is used to protect your remaining tooth structure or facilitate improved aesthetics. Your dentist prepares the tooth, takes an impression and the crown is made in a laboratory by our selected highly-skilled dental technicians.
A dental bridge "bridges" the gap where there are missing teeth. A bridge connects to teeth in your mouth and carries an artificial tooth. A bridge can keep your other teeth from moving out of place. Once a bridge is placed, it works just like your natural teeth.
The dentures we make at Audley are different to what you may expect. We aim to make stable, functional and aesthetic removable appliances that serve you for many years. The appliances we make can be used as a provisional device to replace missing teeth as we consider alternative fixed options or as your definitive replacement option.
At Audley Dental Solutions we strongly believe in preventative dentistry. When you sleep you can occasionally create impressive amounts of force on your teeth, over time this can cause teeth and jaw problems. Well-designed protective appliances can be used to maintain your natural teeth and restorations to reduce the likelihood of intervention in the future.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. An implant has 2 parts: a titanium anchor that is surgically fixed into your jaw and a false tooth, similar to a crown. A dental implant looks and feels like a natural tooth.
