Replacement of missing teeth
Prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the restoration and replacement of missing teeth and parts of the jaw (often using dentures or bridges).
Whether it is from old age, malnutrition, disease or even accidents, sometimes it is necessary to extract some or all of a person’s teeth. While this may sound upsetting, dentures can be one of the solutions to have that perfect smile again. A denture, commonly called ‘false teeth,’ is a removable prosthesis used to replace missing teeth. Usually made of acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal, dentures provide support for the cheeks and lips and help you eat, speak, and function.
