Prosthodontics, which is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association, includes the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation, and maintenance of oral function, appearance, comfort, and health for patients who have clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or maxillofacial tissues. To treat these issues, our dentist may recommend tooth replacements or restorations such as:
• Dental implants – Used to replace one or more missing teeth
• Dentures (partial and/or complete) – Used to replace multiple missing teeth
• Dental crowns – Used to restore teeth that are weakened, misshapen, damaged, or otherwise compromised
• Dental bridges – Used to replace one or more teeth (usually a maximum of three teeth in a row)
No matter the cause of your oral difficulties, we are dedicated to helping you achieve a smile that is healthy, functional, beautiful, and comfortable. While the main goal of prosthodontics in Livermore, California, is to restore the health and function of your smile, this field of dental care also incorporates an aesthetic aspect; we understand that the appearance of your smile plays an important role in your self-confidence. Dr. Rakhi Jani and our team at Smiles Unlimited strive to utilize materials and techniques that lead to natural-looking, natural-feeling, and long-lasting results.
