Prosthodontics Surgical Procedures


Posted on 10/17/2022 by Dr. Hallas
Prosthodontics Surgical ProceduresIdeally, a prosthodontist performs two main types of operations. They handle dental surgeries and implants. In other words, you are more likely to undergo a minor surgery when you visit prosthodontists, although it is not mandatory. There are some situations that necessitate surgeries. Below are the main surgical procedures performed by prosthodontists.

Dental Bonding


Dental bonding is a simple prosthodontic procedure that involves using tooth-colored resin to cover cavities. Although the process is simple, it may require minor surgeries. In some situations, the dentist may have to remove a part of the tooth that is decayed.

Bone Grafting


Bone grafting is a prosthodontist surgical procedure used to treat jawbone recession. One of the most complex dental conditions to handle is jawbone recession. This process necessitates surgery that may take quite some time. After the treatment, the patient may take a few weeks to recover fully. You must also follow strict directions after the procedure to avoid any injuries.

Dental Implants


Dental implants simply refer to any artificial components that are added to the dental formula. In most cases, these implants are installed where a tooth has been removed. You will be accorded a few options to choose from. The tooth removal process itself is surgical although it's just a minor surgery.

Dental Bridge


Dental bridge installation is another common surgical procedure performed by a prosthodontist. The procedure involves the removal of a decaying tooth and replacing it with an artificial one. Bridges have a root that is screwed into your jaw. The prosthodontist administers numbing drugs to help the patient undergo the procedure without feeling serious pain.

Although most of the procedures that prosthodontists undertake are surgical in nature, they are quite minor. Do not fear visiting a prosthodontist since the process is quite painless and will not take much of your time.
