Replace your damaged or missing teeth to restore their function. There is nothing healthier than having a complete set of teeth. Prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry focused on the design and fitting of artificial replacements for teeth in order to assist and improve oral function. Our prosthodontists in Dubai are dental experts trained to deal with the restoration and replacement of teeth and/or jaw structures.
(Crowns And Bridges )
This is the process of restoring teeth artificially using bridges to fill gaps between the teeth, or crowns to cover damaged teeth. These features are fabricated precisely in the laboratory using the patient’s mouth impression and other details given by the dentist. Then, components are secured in place using dental cement. The selection of the material for the restoration is a decision made by the dentist, as per your requirements.
Dentures are detachable appliances used to replace your damaged soft tissues and missing teeth. They are either complete dentures whereby all the teeth are replaced, or partial dentures whereby only some of the teeth are substituted. A combination of metal and plastic materials are used for the fabrication of dentures.
