Every patient experience at National Dental Care starts with a thorough assessment, diagnosis and a detailed treatment plan. You take an active part in this process by telling us about your previous history, main concerns and any other needs or wants. Together with your dentist, you then decide which course of action is the most appropriate for you.
When you need prosthodontic treatment
When your overall oral health and function are badly compromised, the dentist may propose to undertake a more complex rehabilitation of your teeth’s form, function and aesthetics. These procedures are done with great care for the effect of any treatment on the aesthetics of your whole face, and the function of your jaw joints.
This area of dentistry is referred to as prosthodontics. Prosthodontics takes all the elements of restorative dentistry, but combines most of these elements into one complex treatment, often involving other specialty areas such as orthodontics, endodontics, periodontal surgery and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
In the most complex cases, your National Dental Care dentist may recommend a referral to a specialist prosthodontist for best results.
Your oral health plays a big part in your overall wellbeing
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding with a surgical or invasive procedure, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
