Prosthodontics in New Westminster
Prosthodontics is a dental specialty concerned with the restoration of full oral function, most often through artificial replacements for the teeth or restorations of the teeth. A prosthodontist may consult on or be involved in treatment in cases of injury or disease that has caused damage to the teeth or tooth loss, or which requires the extraction and replacement of teeth. Finally, a prosthodontist may be involved in more extensive replacements of the jaw and various parts of the face.
