Prosthodonics

Crowns, bridges and dentures

Prosthodontics is a dental specialty recognised by the General Dental Council. In order to qualify and register as a Specialist Prosthodontist, it is necessary for a qualified dentist to spend an additional 3 years in a rigorous full-time clinical training and to subsequently be examined by the Royal College of Surgeons. 

The focus of Prosthodontics is replacing missing teeth and broken-down tooth structure with tooth like materials and prosthesis. A Specialist Prosthodontist is capable of restoring your mouth comprehensively using their specialist knowledge and skills. Their training ensures that the latest techniques are followed, and modern materials are utilised with an evidence-based approach. This ensures optimal function and appearance for the patient.

A Specialist Prosthodontist is often ‘the last resort’ for a patient with failing teeth or prosthesis that has experienced previous unsuccessful restorative work. Because of their depth of understanding of teeth and how they work for the whole mouth, a Specialist Prosthodontist is capable of carrying out forward looking assessments and treatments that are beyond the skill of a general dentist.
