Prosthodontics in Atlanta
Cracked, fractured or missing teeth not only put a hamper on your smile but can also debilitate your oral health. In addition to this, damaged teeth can interfere with everyday activities like speaking, chewing and eating.
If your self-confidence and oral health are affected by missing or otherwise damaged teeth, you may benefit from prosthodontics, an area of dentistry that focuses on the aesthetic and functional restoration of teeth. Led by expert dentists Drs. Dina Giesler and Marianna Kovitch, Atlanta Smiles & Wellness excel at providing high-quality, personalized prosthodontic treatment. Using only the strongest and more durable materials, our team is able to create natural-looking smiles that are both strong and long-lasting.
Prosthodontic Treatments We Offer
Porcelain Crowns are caps made of strong and durable porcelain material, and are used to repair damaged teeth. Custom-made to match the color and shape of surrounding teeth, porcelain crowns blend seamlessly into the mouth.
Porcelain Bridges are dental restorations used to bridge the gap where a missing tooth or teeth once were. Bridges can be either tooth-supported or implant-supported and can help alleviate stress on your bite, as well as restore normal chewing and speaking abilities.
Dentures replace an entire arch of lost or extracted teeth. There are two types of dentures: partial and full dentures. A partial denture is a bridge that is attached to a metal frame, which is fused to the surrounding teeth. Full dentures consist of upper and lower dentures. Both types are custom-made to fit each patient’s bite.
Dental Implants are artificial teeth that replace missing teeth, including the tooth root. The base is a titanium post that is surgically inserted into the jawbone. A dental crown is placed on top. Dental implants are considered to be the most long-lasting dental restoration option for missing teeth.
TMJ treatment focuses on relieving pain caused by temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Common symptoms include teeth grinding (bruxism), teeth clenching, misaligned bite, jaw pain, difficulty chewing and headaches. TMD can be treated with several treatment options including medications, oral appliance therapy and surgery. The treatment of choice will depend on the symptoms and severity of the patient’s case.
