Here at the office of Dr. Linda S. Weinfeld, the number one Oak Lawn general dentist, some of our most valued and appreciated services are our fixed and removable prosthodontics. Prosthodontics is one of the most important dental specialties because it helps patients restore their smiles in more ways than one—both functionally, and aesthetically, which can be a huge confidence booster and vastly improve a patient’s quality of life as a result. For these reasons, our Oak Lawn general dentist loves to provide patients with the fixed and or removable prosthodontics they need to bring their smiles back to life again.
Perhaps the most commonly known dental prosthodontics are dentures. Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and restore a person’s smile. Dentures can either be fixed or removable, and can either be full or partial based on the amount of teeth missing and the location of the tooth loss. Our Oak Lawn general dentist has helped many patients restore their smiles with both fixed and removable dentures. A similar prosthodontic often provided by Dr. Weinfeld is the dental bridge. Dental bridgework is not as extensive as the use of dentures. A dental bridge is used to literally bridge the gap between teeth that is caused by tooth extraction or teeth falling out. Dental bridges too can be fixed or removable, and vary based on the needs of each individual patient. These are only some of many treatments that fall under the category of dental prosthodontics, and that can be used to fully restore and improve your smile.
If you think you could benefit from dental prosthodontics, whether fixed or removable, you should schedule an appointment with our Oak Lawn general dentist for a consultation. Dr. Weinfeld would love to show you the possibilities prosthodontics hold for your smile. If you have any questions or concerns about dental prosthodontics or any of the other many services provided by our Oak Lawn general dentist that we might be able help you with, do not hesitate to contact us at the office directly. We look forward to working with you soon.
