Prosthodontics

The Goldstein Center for Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry 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 time to understand the needs and priorities of each of his Atlanta patients to ensure they are confident and comfortable throughout the entire process.

If you are missing one or multiple teeth, Dr. Goldstein and his team at The Goldstein Center for Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry 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 designing and creating replacement teeth. Dr. Goldstein will listen to your concerns and priorities when deciding which prosthetic option is a best fit for you.

He offers a wide selection of procedures that will be personalized to your individual mouth and needs. So whether you are wanting removable and economical dentures, implants to support the roots of your teeth, or even a full set of prosthetic teeth, Dr. Goldstein will work alongside you to great beautiful results.

What does Prosthodontics involve?

Dr. Goldstein will first need to get an idea of your mouth. He may take x-rays and/or make an impression of your teeth. He will use this examination in combination with your expectations to ensure your replacement teeth are the perfect shape, size, color, and that they fit comfortably.

When the replacement teeth are prepared, if permanent, they will be placed in your mouth and cemented to guarantee long term stability.  However, it is important to keep in mind that your individual procedure will look different depending on what type of replacement you choose during your initial consultation.

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

To create a beautiful set of replacement teeth, a prosthodontist not only needs skill and experience, but to understand the needs of the 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 a proud to be a Certified Prosthodontic Dentist where he has 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 Center for Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry 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 purposes, 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 namesake 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 for a more stable fit than a traditional denture. Speech is improved as is chewing foods that were not able to be eaten previously. 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. Quality of life is renewed and self-confidence restored.
