The American Dental Association recognizes nine different specialties, and prosthodontics is one of those specialties. Training for this branch of dentistry involves aesthetics, cosmetics, crowns, bridges, inlays and dentures, along with dental implants.
Dr. Meden is trained to get your mouth back into its proper form and function. Using the techniques described above, issues of the mouth can be resolved, which can improve everything from snoring to sleep disorders and more. Restoring your smile is what Elite Smiles is all about.
Dr. Meden provides many options to fit your unique dental and cosmetic needs. Fixed bridges are a permanent solution to replace one or more missing teeth and cantilever bridges correct teeth in your smile line. A bridge will look and feel like your own teeth and can reduce your risk of gum disease, correct bite issues and even improve your speech.
With a commitment to consistent oral hygiene your bridge will last ten years or more. Alternate to a fixed prosthesis, partials, full dentures are available as well. Implant retained dentures are ideal for patients who want a better support and for those with multiple implant treatment.
If you’ve had a mouth injury, and the structure of your teeth is in question, Dr. Meden can consult you on your best options. You might need dental implants, or some other procedure.
We understand how an important your smile is, and we want it to be elite!
Who needs prosthodontic help?
A wide variety of people need this variety of dentistry. In many cases, patients are missing teeth. This can happen for a number of reasons, either through injury or even through the passing of time. Some patients need dental implants or bridges, while others will be better off with dentures.
Dentures come in many varieties, and Dr. Meden can consult with you on the best solution for your mouth. Some dentures replace all of your teeth, but there are also partial dentures, which leave the remaining teeth.
Many people choose to receive prosthodontic help not because of injury or serious condition, but because they simply want to improve the aesthetics of their smile. Dr. Meden is trained in a variety of cosmetic techniques to give you the smile you want.
