What Is Prosthodontics?
It is important to have a healthy smile that is as functional as it is beautiful. Prosthetic dentistry involves the use of artificial replacements (prosthetics) that will repair and restore oral function, such as crowns, bridges, veneers, dental implants, and more.
With specialty training in advanced prosthodontic procedures and the latest technology, our team at North Shore Prosthodontic Associates can resolve even the most complex dental issues. This not only includes missing or damaged teeth, but also conditions like sleep apnea, TMJ disorders, overall jaw function, trauma, and more.
Benefits of Prosthodontics
Prosthodontic issues can arise for various reasons - the result of trauma or injury, due to certain health conditions, or years of poor oral hygiene. The detailed work of repairing and restoring oral function is best left up to a prosthodontist.

Are dental implants the best option for replacing missing teeth?
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the gold standard. They are implanted into the jaw bone which allows them to both look and function like real teeth. Dental implants are often the best option for replacing missing teeth, but every situation is different. Your prosthodontist will discuss what will work best for your treatment.
Why is it important to replace missing teeth?
Aesthetically, missing teeth can reduce your desire to smile and, function, it can make it hard to enjoy certain foods or speak properly. But that’s not all that happens when you are missing a tooth. The surrounding teeth rely on that tooth for support - so when it isn’t there, your teeth will begin to shift.
How long does a dental crown last?
The longevity of a dental crown depends on your level of oral hygiene. Many crowns can last between 10 to 15 years. However, with exceptional care, a crown may last upwards of 25 or 30 years!
How dangerous is it to not treat sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is when your breathing stops and restarts as you sleep. Without treatment, it can lead to loud snoring, sleepiness in the daytime, high blood pressure, and other cardiac issues.
