Prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with replacing teeth. A prosthodontist helps create and place unique teeth replacements that look and feel natural.
When you are missing teeth, you need new teeth that can help you to chew and speak normally again. Aside from restored usability, you can also enjoy the restoration of your unique smile!
Prosthodontics With Dr. Adishian
Having a prosthodontist you can trust is vital when you need to replace your teeth. Your prosthodontist should be well-trained, but they should also be the type of professional that you feel comfortable working with during your restoration process.
You can have both excellent training and a caring manner when you choose to replace your teeth at our office with Dr. Scott Adishian.
Dr. Adishian holds a Specialty Certificate in Advanced Prosthodontics from the USC School of Dentistry. This means that Dr. Adishian attended a series of courses beyond his DDS degree that helped him specialize in replacing teeth.
In addition to completing extensive coursework, Dr. Adishian is a dental professional who truly cares about his patients’ well-being. Dr. Adishian takes the time to carefully examine your mouth before offering the options that will work for your situation.
Dentures remain an excellent choice for teeth replacement. We can create dentures that are customized for your unique mouth, whether you need full or partial sets.
Dentures from our office are designed with you in mind. We want to help you restore your chewing and speaking ability as well as your smile. Creating a unique set of dentures is a great way to achieve all of these goals!
We even have the ability to create a full set of dentures in an hour and a half! This means that you do not have to endure an uncomfortable wait for your replacement teeth to be completed.
So many patients think of dentures as an entire set of replacement teeth. Though many patients do have a full set of dentures, you can also have a partial denture that is created just for you!
It is important to replace missing teeth to prevent shifting and to maintain your ability to speak and eat normally. Partial dentures do exactly this. We nestle your partial denture in the gap left behind by your missing teeth to restore function and keep your remaining teeth from moving in ways they should not.
We can offer a number of options to ensure that your partial denture is comfortable, functional, and beautiful.
Though a prosthodontist can help you choose from a number of tooth replacement options, popular choices often include dental implants.
Implants begin with titanium posts to support either crowns or dentures.
Crowns that are placed atop dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. You can enjoy the return of your tooth for better function and happier smiles!
Dentures that are supported by implants do not slip or slide the way that traditional dentures can because implant-supported dentures can comfortably stay in place like your natural set of teeth.
The All-on-4® Treatment Concept
If you need to replace a full arch of teeth, we can offer an innovation to your prosthodontic care: the All-on-4® treatment concept. All of your teeth can be firmly supported by only 4 dental implants!
Using this concept means that your implant surgery is shorter but just as effective. The implant sites are carefully chosen by your prosthodontist to provide both stability and comfort.
In some cases, we may even be able to use this treatment concept to replace your arch of teeth in a single day!
