Here at Dental Arts of Boston, we are pleased to offer prosthodontics to our patients.
Prosthodontics is a field of dentistry that helps patients when they are missing teeth or other structures in the mouth. Prosthodontists work hard, not only to provide functionality so patients can talk and eat better, but also to give our patients beautiful smiles!
Prosthodontists need to start by doing a full examination so that they can decide the best way to treat a patient. They often use implants, crowns, bridges, and more. In the worst case scenarios, they make patients a set of dentures to give them a lovely smile.
