Prosthodontic rehabilitation refers to a wide variety of treatments that, when combined, can save you from dental problems affecting the whole mouth. The American Dental Association recognizes prosthodontists as the experts in reconstructive dentistry and rehabilitation, and Dr. Fraiman brings years of experience and expertise to his patient-oriented care.
What is prosthodontic rehabilitation?
Prosthodontic rehabilitation is the process of rehabilitating the whole mouth, including the teeth, gums, and bite. It involves a variety of dental treatments, including implants, crowns, and bridges. Dr. Fraiman can help you determine if you’re in need of prosthodontic rehabilitation, by assessing your bite and the condition of your teeth. As a board-eligible prosthodontist, Dr. Fraiman specializes in rehabilitations. He’ll talk you through the process and make sure you are comfortable and confident in your care.
What type of patient needs them?
Rehabilitations are for patients of all ages, but they are commonly used to treat adult patients who have undergone previous dental work that might be acting up, or who have other dental problems. They are also sometimes requested by patients who just want their mouth to have a little extra attention. Rehabilitation benefits patients with a difficult bite, difficult aesthetics, worn-down teeth, as well as a number of other conditions affecting the look, feel, and functionality of your teeth.
How long do they last?
Dr. Fraiman tells patients rehabilitations can last indefinitely. Their life depends on a number of factors, including oral hygiene and environmental factors, but they are typically a strong and long-lasting treatment for complex dental problems.
