Specialist Prosthodontist London

A prosthodontist dentist is dental specialist who has trained for an extra three or more years after their primary dental degree in the advanced restoration of teeth and replacement of missing teeth. Both simple and complicated treatment can be carried out by a prosthodontist, including treatment of malocclusions (your bite) and severely broken down/worn teeth. Examples of treatments carried out are implants, bridges, crowns, veneers and dentures.

What is the difference between a general dentist and a specialist prosthodontist?

Patients who are referred to a prosthodontist usually have a more complex dental needs such as a complicated bite, severely broken down, decayed or worn teeth and have difficulty eating or talking. For these patients, a full mouth rehabilitation is often required, taking into account functionality and aesthetics.

In such complex cases, it is important for the prosthodontist to carefully plan the stages and timings of treatments to limit the causes of problems and ensure a successful result for the patient. This involves casting up study models, to analyse the bite and teeth and producing a “wax-up” of the desired result that the dentist and patient plans to achieve at the end of treatment. By using this “wax-up”, the prosthodontist is able to show the patient what their teeth will look like at the end of the proposed treatment plan, and also gives the patient a chance to comment on anything they may like to have changed. This process where the patient, prosthodontist and lab technician (ceramist) discuss and create a replica of the desired result is called smile design.

A prosthodontist is a dental professional who specializes in restorations to improve aesthetics and function of the mouth. This may involve fitting crowns, bridges, or veneers that match the shape and shade of your natural teeth, making partial or full dentures that will fit comfortably in your mouth, or implants to replace missing teeth or to support restorations.

Patients are usually referred to a prosthodontist when full mouth rehabilitation is needed, meaning there is an incorrect bite which causes difficulty in eating and speech. A smile design is derived which involves restorations not only to improve functionality, but ensures great attention to aesthetic detail to give you a perfect smile.

The specialist prosthodontist process

The process of seeing our Prosthodontist in London involves having a consultation to discuss main areas of concern, assessment of the patient’s habits and diet, and an impression is taken of both upper and lower teeth as well as a bite registration so that an articulated study model can be made.
This study model represents the structure of the teeth in its present state, which will enable the prosthodontist to clearly assess the occlusion of the top and bottom teeth, their alignment, and will also allow visual explanation of what the problem is and what will need to be done to correct this.

Once the models are made, a report detailing the findings of the assessment and future plans including all costs will be sent to the patient. Once the patient is happy to go ahead with the treatment plan, the treatment will begin.
