Most general dentists offer dental prosthesis services and can provide good results that allow you to restore your smile at a reasonable price. With proper care, your dental prosthesis will last for many years. However, you should see your prosthodontist or dentist at least once a year to make sure they still fit you well and comfortably. This is because your mouth can change shape over the years and cause your previously well-fitting dentures to feel loose or unsafe.
Dental laboratory technicians make and repair dental appliances, such as dentures, crowns, and braces. They usually work in dental offices and commercial laboratories. Prosthodontists specialize in the proper fit and placement of crowns, bridges, and solid or removable dentures. A prosthodontist will first evaluate the current condition of the gums and jaw to determine the best size and shape, and then design one according to those specifications.
