Prosthodontics

The Goldstein Dental Center Provides Prosthodontics to Our Atlanta Patients

Reconstructive dentistry to replace a tooth or multiple teeth may seem intimidating and complicated. That’s why Dr. Goldstein takes the time to understand the needs and priorities of each of his Atlanta patients to ensure he or she feels confident and comfortable throughout the entire process.

If you are missing one tooth or multiple teeth, Dr. Goldstein and his team at the Goldstein Dental Center are here to team up with you to create beautiful prosthetics to help you get back to eating, talking, and smiling again.

What Is Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the design and creation of replacement teeth. Dr. Goldstein will listen to your concerns and priorities before deciding which prosthetic option is best for you.

Offering a wide selection of procedures that will be crafted to your individual needs–whether you prefer removable and economical dentures, implants to support the roots of your teeth, or a full set of prosthetic teeth–Dr. Goldstein will be able to achieve the beautiful results you want.

What Does Prosthodontics Involve?

To ensure a perfect fit of the chosen prosthetic, Dr. Goldstein may take x-rays and/or an impression of your teeth.   He will use the information from this examination, in combination with your expectation, to ensure your replacement teeth are the perfect shape, size, and color, and that they fit comfortably.

If the replacement teeth are permanent, they will be placed in your mouth once they are prepared and then cemented to guarantee long-term stability.  Remember that each prosthetic has a different purpose, and, therefore, a different appearance. Your new smile will be based on the prosthetic chosen during your initial consultation, and it will be beautiful!

Why Choose Atlanta’s Goldstein Dental Center for Your Prosthodontic Procedure?

To create a beautiful set of replacement teeth, a prosthodontist not only needs skill and experience, but also an understanding of the individual needs of his patients. While many Atlanta area dentists offer replacement teeth, few have mastered the art of cosmetic dentistry like Atlanta’s very own Dr. Goldstein. Dr. Goldstein is proud to be a Certified Prosthodontic Dentist, having received extensive training working with prosthetics.

We are pleased to offer prosthodontic procedures in Atlanta as well as the Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Brookhaven, and Chastain neighborhoods. Please contact the Goldstein Dental Center if you are interested in prosthodontics or any other cosmetic dental treatments that Dr. Goldstein’s practice offers.


IMPLANTS

Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. They are small hollow cylinders that look and act like the roots of your teeth. They are surgically placed in the existing bone, just like placing an anchor into a wall to give support to hang an object. Implants hold a crown in place to restore a tooth or teeth. Dental implants are built to look, feel, and function like natural teeth! Aside from aesthetic value, implants also help preserve facial structure and can stop the bone deterioration that occurs when a tooth is missing. We work with multiple implant companies and are adept at repairing or restoring any existing implants you may already have. Call today to find out if you are a candidate for dental implants!

FIXED PARTIAL DENTURE (BRIDGES)

These are very similar to their namesakes on our roads. Two or more healthy teeth are used to restore a missing tooth. Tooth structure is reduced on both sides of the missing tooth, and a “bridge” is made to hold a tooth in the space.

PARTIALS & DENTURES

Removable partials and dentures are economical options for replacing one or all of your teeth. We try to save our patients teeth whenever possible since removable devices are not the preferred way to restore teeth for most patients. Unfortunately, these devices are not as stable as a fixed or cemented replacement.

OVERDENTURES (IMPLANT-SUPPORTED)

This removable denture is used to restore a full arch of missing teeth where there is enough bone to place implants, resulting in a more stable fit than a traditional denture. Speech is improved as is chewing foods that previously were not able to be eaten. The worry of the denture becoming loose or falling out is no longer a concern. This option is an excellent choice, and patients are pleased with the support offered by a “snap-in denture.”

HYBRID PROSTHESIS (IMPLANT-SUPPORTED FIXED DENTURE)

This fixed prosthesis provides the feel and appearance of natural teeth. These procedures involve enhanced treatment planning and a partnership between the prosthodontist, lab technician, and oral surgeon. The result – a full set of teeth, supported by implants, that is stable and not removable. This allows you to eat, speak and laugh with confidence; they will not come loose. Your quality of life is renewed and your self-confidence is restored.
