FOD

Overview:

 

The branch of prosthodontics deals with the restoration of natural teeth, the replacement of missing teeth and contiguous maxillofacial tissues with artificial substitutes. Optimal oral health and esthetics are obtained for patients through the use of various treatment options available. These include fabrication of complete and removable partial dentures, crowns, fixed dental prosthesis, laminate/veneers, inlays, post endodontic restoration, maxillofacial prosthesis and implants. Through diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance, a prosthodontist can improve the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of a patient.
