If your teeth have been lost or damaged, Dr. Jon Glenn may recommend a prosthodontic treatment to help you regain your oral health and smile. Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association®, and focuses on diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of patients with missing or deficient teeth or oral tissues. It includes everything from replacing missing teeth to restoring irregular or damaged teeth so that you can regain, and even enhance, the appearance and function of your smile.
The goal of prosthodontic treatment is both functional and aesthetic. In addition to replacing missing teeth and restoring damaged or irregular teeth, prosthodontic care also includes attending to the needs of geriatric patients, caring for children born with genetic facial defects, aiding in rehabilitation after a traumatic dental or facial injury, and providing TMJ therapy. Because prosthodontics is designed to care for a wide range of dental needs, our dentist may coordinate your treatment plan with a team of general dentists, specialists and other health professionals to find solutions for dental problems and ensure you receive quality care that meets your needs.
