The term prosthodontics means, literally, “tooth replacement”.

Prosthodontic procedures are sometimes carried out by general dentists but are usually the realm of highly trained specialists.

Specialist prosthodontists are experienced in a range of procedures, from single tooth management through to full arch rehabilitations and Teeth in 3 days™. They often work in conjunction with specialists in the related fields of periodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery, a particularly effective collaboration when all of these clinicians work seamlessly under one roof as they do at Collins Street Specialist Centre.
