What is a Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a specialty dentist who helps patients replace missing teeth and repair damaged teeth. Prosthodontists examine the structures that make up the teeth, gums, jaw, and facial structure. They take their patient’s dental history and current problems into account before recommending care.

Restorative and Cosmetic Prosthodontic Solutions

There are a variety of treatments that Dr. Boenning or Dr. Dancykier may use to help restore the form and function of his patient’s smiles.

Implant Dentistry: Dental implants, crowns, dentures, and bridges are all dental treatments used to replace missing teeth. Implants can replace a single missing tooth or secure dentures or dental bridges to restore multiple lost teeth. Dental crowns cover implants and implant-secured restorations for a natural look. By replacing their missing teeth with durable solutions, patients can bite, chew, and speak with a balanced smile.

TMJ Treatment: Temporomandibular joint disorders can cause jaw pain, chronic headaches, teeth clenching and grinding, and other painful symptoms. Over time, TMJ may also damage teeth and impact the health of your jaw. Dr. Boenning and Dr. Dancykier treat patients with TMJ to prevent tooth damage or even tooth loss.

Addressing Dental Damage: Cosmetic dental solutions like porcelain veneers and tooth bonding treatments cover tooth damage and are often the last step of a smile makeover. After receiving implants or other restorative treatments to improve the health of their smiles, many patients then address cosmetic inconsistencies. Veneers and bonding both protect and improve the look of chipped, cracked, or fractured teeth.
