Prosthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with creating, designing, and restoring missing or damaged teeth. Dental prosthetics can treat various dental concerns ranging from missing a single tooth to the whole arch of teeth. Prosthodontics is also used to enhance the appearance of your smile.
Our Prosthodontist - Dr. Maryse Manasse
Dr. Manasse graduated from New Jersey Dental School in 2006, and went on to pursue Prosthodontic specialty training for three more years. She has been awarded as the Top Dentist of 2019 in Morris and Essex countries for her excellent work in specialties such as dental implantation, all-on-4, crowns, bridges, dentures, and full mouth reconstruction.
They are one of the most popular restorative solutions for missing teeth. A dental implant is made using medical-grade titanium. We place it in your jawbone to replicate your natural tooth root. As a result, an implant becomes a foundation to support your single tooth, dental bridge, and even full dentures. Dental implants function similarly to your natural teeth.
Crowns and Bridges
A dental crown adds strength to chipped, broken, or cracked teeth recommended for those suffering from tooth decay or who have undergone root canal therapy. A dental crown is used to restore a single tooth. But if you want to restore multiple teeth, we will recommend bridges as a treatment option. They are held in place by crowns secured to your natural teeth on either side.
Dentures are one of the most common treatment options for missing teeth. They comprise replacement teeth that are secured to a gum-colored acrylic. Dentures also include acrylic fused to a metal base as well as a metal framework. A denture can be complete or partial. A complete denture restores all the missing teeth, whereas a partial denture is recommended for a few missing teeth only. A denture needs similar dental care to your natural teeth.
Prosthodontics also includes various cosmetic dental procedures that we carry out to improve the appearance of your smile. These treatment options also ensure that your joints, muscles, and teeth work in harmony with each other.
When you visit us for cosmetic dentistry, we will carry out your dental examination to decide the best treatment for you. Our options range from a single tooth-colored crown to a whole smile rehabilitation plan. It also includes correcting the misalignment of your teeth and restoring their natural appearance to improve or enhance your smile. Professional teeth cleaning is the most common cosmetic dental procedure suitable for people of all ages.
Total Mouth Rehabilitation
We also perform total mouth rehabilitation to restore your lovely smile. The treatment plan is decided after carrying out your dental examination. We will look for concerns and provide a suitable treatment for them, including all the options stated above.
