Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a dentist and a prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist graduates from dental school just like a general dentist, but then goes on to receive additional education that allows them to specialize in restoring missing teeth and treating issues concerning the jaw. Prosthodontists are trained in aesthetics, crowns, dentures, bridges, dental implants, and TMJ disorders (TMD).
What is a same-day crown?
Traditionally, patients have had to have their teeth prepared for a dental crown and then wait weeks for their permanent restorations to be fabricated and placed. Same-day crowns allow us to prepare your teeth and place a permanent restoration all in a single two-hour appointment. When you see a prosthodontist for a same-day crown, you are assured a restoration that is carefully fabricated to match your adjacent teeth and look completely natural.
Can dentists treat sleep apnea?
Yes, dentists can treat sleep apnea and prosthodontists have particular insight into diagnosing and treating the disorder. Our first line of treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is often oral appliance therapy, which is used to help you maintain an open airway while you sleep.
How long does it take to straighten your teeth with Invisalign?
Treatment time for Invisalign depends on the severity of your orthodontic issues, the number of sets of aligners needed, and your compliance with the program. Most patients see treatment times ranging between nine and 18 months, with 12 months being average.
How long does a dental implant last?
The term “dental implant” is sometimes used as a catch-all term, but there are three separate components involved: the implant itself, which is a small post or screw that is placed in the jawbone, an abutment that attaches to the implant, and a restoration that is affixed to the abutment. While the restoration may need eventual replacement, with proper care and maintenance, dental implants should last many decades or even a lifetime.
Do veneers ruin your teeth?
It’s a common misconception that veneers ruin your teeth, but the structure and health of your teeth remains the same with them. It is true, though, that a layer of enamel must be removed in order to bond veneers to your teeth. This means that once you decide to get veneers, you will always need them—you can’t change your mind and go back to your natural teeth once this layer of enamel is removed.
