Treatments

Prosthodontic treatments are designed to produce a balance between functional longevity and esthetics. It includes the following:

  • Complete Denture Prosthesis
    The treatment for totally missing teeth patients is done with utmost care and with best materials. We provide a variety of material choices depending on the requirement of the case. Replacement of single arch is also done in the form of Single Complete Denture.
  • Removable partial dentures
    This treatment is carried out for patients who have few missing teeth. These are removable dentures that take support from the adjacent teeth. Deals with the replacement of missing teeth using a removable artificial substitute that can readily be removed by the patient. These are usually done by the students under the guidance of the qualified doctors.
  • Overdentures
    These are done in patients where two healthy teeth are present. These teeth are used to improve the fit, comfort and function of the dentures. This particular treatmentis exclusively done by the qualified doctors and is nominally charged.
  • Immediate dentures
    As the name suggests these dentures are given immediately after extraction of the teeth. The prosthesis is fabricated before the extraction and placed immediately afterthe tooth is extracted. This is done for people who cannot be without teeth at all, like, socially active people or for psychological reasons. This involves more tedious work and is also nominally charged, and undertaken by qualified doctors in this field.
  • Fixed partial dentures (crowns and bridges)
    This deals with the replacement of missing teeth using fixed artificial substitutes that remain fixed either to the adjacent teeth or to dental implants. This treatmentis carried out for patients who have one or few missing teeth, root canal treated tooth, badly broken down tooth, discolored tooth. The various treatments rendered are cap/ crown for root canal treated tooth, bridge for one or few teeth missing.
  • Full mouth rehabilitation
    This is done for the cases which require treatment for all the teeth. The treatment is done by qualified and experienced doctors. Materials used for this treatment are metal, metal ceramic and metal-free ceramic and implants. The treatment is done with a very nominal fee depending on the choice of material and the complexity of the situation.
  • Implant prosthesis
    Prosthodontists are at the forefront of dental implantology, concentrating on the preservation of a healthy mouth, the creation of tooth replacements and dynamic smiles. Dental implants are the most advanced form of replacing missing teeth that dentistry has to offer today. These are small titanium screws with prosthesis that are inserted into areas of missing teeth in order to provide a tooth like substitute 
  • Maxillofacial Prosthodontics
    It deals with the treatment of patients with congenital and acquired defects of the head and neck region. It integrates parts of multiple disciplines including head and neck oncology, congenital malformation, plastic surgery, speech and other related disciplines. It deals with restoration of acquired defects, which may be intra oral or extra oral. Intra oral defects may involve the maxilla, mandible, tongue, soft palate or hard palate, while extra oral defects may involve any other area of the head or neck like.. ears, eyes, nose, fingers etc.
  • Aesthetic prosthodontics
    It is the most advanced approach to providing the best smiles utilizing the sophisticated principles of smile designing .Dental veneers and other bonded restorations fall into the category of cosmetic dentistry & smile designing; and are used to create bright smiles with beautifully shaped teeth. Regardless of what causes unattractive teeth, these types of restorations may solve most or all of the issues, including severe tooth discoloration, chips ,cracks and the wear and tear that causes uneven teeth.
  • Gnathology
    It includes temporomandibular Joint and other related disorders: In addition to the fore mentioned treatment plans commonly employed in Prosthodontics, the Prosthodontics department provides treatments for jaw problems caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD), snoring disorder, sleep apnea problems, and some degree of reconstruction following treatments/surgery for oral cancer.
Prosthodontists work closely with periodontists, endodontists, oral surgeons and orthodontists to elicit the finest restorative results for the patients.
