Dental Prosthetics are:

  • the replacement of any missing tooth, or teeth, in the mouth by means of an artificial appliance or structure.
  • the replacement or restoration of a broken or damaged tooth by means of an artificial structure.
  • the cosmetic improvement to teeth by means of an artificial construction.

In essence, prosthetics can be classified as:


  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Inlays and Onlays
  • Implants


  • Dentures

Your Dental Surgeon will carry out a full and comprehensive examination of your mouth which will probably include:

  • Full tooth charting.
  • Periodontal Health.
  • Bone loss and integrity.
  • Cavity and Decay check.
  • Intra- and extra-oral radiographs.
  • Study models of your teeth.
  • Possible wax mock up of the proposed restorations.

At the conclusion of all discussions the Dental Surgeon will formulate a treatment plan in accordance with your wishes and his recomendations and provide you with a cost estimate for the proposed treatment plan.
