Prosthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry dedicated to making dental prosthetics (artificial teeth) for damaged or missing teeth. The word “prosthodontics” comes from the words “prostho,” meaning replacement, and “dontist,” meaning teeth.

Prosthodontics can treat-

  • Missing teeth
  • Severely damaged teeth.
  • TMJ pain or dysfunction.

Prosthodontics appliance:

  • Full and partial dentures
  • Crowns and bridges.
  • Oral splints.
Dental crowns

A dental crown — sometimes called a “cap” — is a restoration that covers a badly damaged tooth. You might need a crown if you have extensive decay or a cracked tooth, or if you’ve recently had a root canal.


Dental bridges

A dental bridge replaces one or more missing teeth in a row. This dental prosthetic consists of two crowns on either side with artificial teeth (pontics) in between them. Once placed, your natural teeth anchor the crowns, and the pontics fill the gap in your smile.



There are two main types of dentures: partial and full. Partial dentures replace several sporadically missing teeth. Full dentures replace a full arch of missing teeth. These removable appliances help restore the function and appearance of your smile.


Inlays and onlays

If a tooth is too damaged for a filling but not damaged enough to warrant a crown, then you might need an inlay or onlay. These custom restorations fit into your tooth structure like tiny puzzle pieces.
