PROSTHODONTICS is one of the branches of dentistry that deals with the replacement of missing teeth and the associated soft and hard tissues by prostheses (crowns, bridges, dentures) which may be fixed or removable, or may be supported and retained by implants.

A Prosthodontist is a specialist dentist who deals with the replacement of missing teeth and related mouth or jaw structures by bridges, dentures or prostheses. They receive an additional three years of training after dental school to specialize in this field.

The subspecialties include :

Fixed Prosthodontics

Removable Prosthodontics

Maxillofacial Prosthodontics

Implant Prosthodontics


Unlike crowns which are single units, a bridge is made up of 2 or more units. It may be recommended :

If one or more teeth are missing

Where implants cannot be done

Where cost is a consideration

Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth on either side of the missing tooth. As with crowns, there is a choice of materials for bridges.


CROWNS are fixed artificial teeth that deal with the restoration of damaged teeth. Unlike removable devices such as dentures, which can be taken out and cleaned daily, these are cemented onto existing teeth and can only be removed by a dentist.

The dental technician then fabricates the desired restoration as per the prescription. The finished product is then cemented in the mouth using various cements.
