What Does Prosthodontics Mean?
Prosthodontics is the reconstruction and replacement of teeth damaged by congenital disorders and traumatic injuries. This also includes the rehabilitation of patients with tissue lost as a result of injury.
Patients, often with complex treatment needs, are seen to get a diagnosis, advice and treatment in conjunction with the referring practitioner. The treatment for patients is focussed on multidisciplinary treatment needs and is often undertaken in conjunction with the referring practitioner. Our Centre is patient-focused. Your dental care is determined within a wide scope of multidisciplinary treatments undertaken in conjunction with the referring practitioner.

What Is the Difference Between a Dentist and a Prosthodontist?
A general dentist is a primary dental care provider. Dentists offer routine dental check-ups and cleanings, in addition to basic restorative treatments, including fillings, crowns and bridges.
A prosthodontist is a dental specialist. After graduating from dental school, they receive three additional years of residency training. They specialize in making teeth replacements, such as crowns, bridges, dentures and more.
General dentists often refer to prosthodontists when dealing with complex cases or cases that are outside the scope of their practice.
