“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination,” Albert Einstein
Creativity is a key component in prosthodontic dental care and imagination is required to create a flawless dental restoration. Whether it’s a crown, bridge, denture, or dental implant supported prosthesis, creativity is an integral component. It takes creativity to construct an ideal final product that fits well, feels comfortable, looks attractive and suits the patient’s face.
In many cases, a prosthodontist is the best choice for your dental care. A prosthodontist is a dental specialist who has completed dental school plus three additional years of rigorous advanced training in an ADA accredited prosthodontic graduate program.
Dentistry is an exacting science with protocols that are driven by research. But where science stops, creativity begins.
“Imagination is the beginning of creation,” George Bernard Shaw said. Creating an exquisite restoration begins with really understanding our patient’s vision for their perfect smile. Collaboration and communication allows the prosthodontist to help the patient attain their goal.
One of the biggest challenges is creating a smile for a person who is missing all of their teeth. It’s like starting from scratch. The shape of the face, surrounding dentition, bite, jawline and midline are all considered when creating a new smile.
Comfort and function is crucial. Your teeth should feel like you were born with them.
A person’s smile is very personal and the teeth must suit their features precisely. A prosthodontist understands the complexities of facial structures. Shape, color and size are key components in the design when making a smile that looks natural and pleasing.
