Prosthodontics, a specialised branch of dentistry, focuses on crafting dental prosthetics for damaged or missing teeth. A prosthodontist is a dental specialist with advanced training in creating crowns, bridges, dentures, and other restorative treatments. Additionally, they are adept at treating TMJ disorders.
Imagine a prosthodontist as the lead architect of dental aesthetics. Just as an architect draws up plans and oversees the construction of a building to ensure it’s both beautiful and functional, a prosthodontist designs and implements treatment plans to restore the beauty and function of your teeth.
Acting as the chief strategist of a dental project, prosthodontists collaborate with other dental professionals to ensure restorations are indistinguishable from natural teeth.
Like the lead architect who ensures that every detail of a building is perfect, from its foundational structure to its aesthetic facade, a prosthodontist is the expert in crafting dental implants, cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry.
They have a profound understanding of the dynamics of a perfect smile, the importance of a healthy mouth, and the art of creating flawless tooth replacements.
The final masterpiece? A rejuvenated sense of oral wellness, a smile you can be proud of, and confidence that radiates.
Revitalising Your Smile: A prosthodontist’s expertise rejuvenates your smile with bespoke dental appliances that resemble natural teeth. Whether you have facial gaps in your teeth or severe damage, Dr Jurie Steyn will design a tailored treatment plan.
Staving Off Bone Loss: Losing teeth can cause the jaw bone to deteriorate, potentially changing your facial structure. Using dental implants and other tools, a prosthodontist prevents this deterioration and upholds your dental health.
Enhancing Overall Health: A strong link exists between oral and overall health. While you should schedule regular dental check-ups, you need a prosthodontist consultation if you have missing or badly damaged teeth. Their expertise ensures lasting, high-quality solutions.
Inlays and onlays offer a durable and aesthetic solution for teeth that have suffered decay or damage. They are custom-made fillings crafted from porcelain or composite materials, designed to fit perfectly into or onto the affected tooth, restoring its shape and function.
Dental implants are state-of-the-art surgical components embedded into the jawbone, acting as a sturdy foundation to support various dental prostheses, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. They provide a long-term solution, mimicking the root of a natural tooth, and ensure the stability and functionality of the replacement tooth or teeth.
Located in Cape Town, Dr. Jurie Steyn is a respected prosthodontist with a remarkable background spanning over 40 years. With specialised training from the USA, Dr. Steyn excels in cosmetic restoration and tooth replacements.
Whilst risks associated with prosthodontic procedures are minimal, as with any dental treatment, there’s a slight chance of infection or nerve damage. Any concerning symptoms should be promptly communicated to your dental professional.
