Prosthodontic Procedures In Brandon, FL to Bring Out the Best in Your Smile


With the help of our highly skilled prosthodontist in Brandon, FL, Dr. Kokkas, you can have a beautiful smile again! Prosthodontics, also known as dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry, is one of nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Prosthodontics is a wide-ranging dental specialty that goes above and beyond general dentistry. Dentists that provide prosthodontic services need specialized training and years of extra education. These services include procedures to restore teeth and esthetic treatments to help patients’ teeth appear attractive and healthy.

More specifically, prosthodontic procedures can be very helpful after tooth loss due to age, decay, or traumatic injury. Additionally, cosmetic treatments like tooth whitening, veneers, and bonding fall into the category of prosthodontics.

Here is more information about the prosthodontic procedures that your Brandon Smiles prosthodontists provide:

  • Bonding – In dental bonding, your dentist uses specialized dental cement to attach veneers or other prostheses to your teeth. However, bonding with tooth-colored cement is also useful for reconstructing chipped, cracked, or misshapen teeth. This process gives attractive results and eliminates the need for a tooth extraction.
  • Dental Bridges – A dental bridge serves as a replacement for one or several missing teeth. It is a fixed, non-removable device that anchors to adjacent teeth. Dental bridges are a cost-effective option if you are missing a single tooth or a few teeth near each other.
  • Caps and Crowns – Caps and crowns are different terms for pretty much the same thing. Your dentist may recommend a cap to cover and protect a damaged tooth, such as one that has suffered from a lot of decay or been cracked. The cap looks natural while also helping to keep the tooth intact.
  • Dental Implants – Dental implants are the latest in tooth replacement solutions. These prosthetic teeth are anchored into the bone of your mouth and capped with a natural-appearing crown. Dental implants are versatile and can be used to replace a single tooth, all your teeth, and any number of teeth in between.

Prosthodontics and Dentures

  • Full Dentures – A full set of dentures may be the answer if you are missing all or most of your teeth. Modern dentures by Brandon Smiles look natural, allow you to chew and speak more easily, and are expertly fitted by our dentists.
  • Partial Dentures – Partials are used if you still have viable teeth and only need to replace a section of your dentition. Just like full dentures, contemporary partial dentures are durable and attractive.
  • Implant-Supported Prosthesis – Implant-supported dentures offer an extra secure fit for patients who have lost their teeth but still have good bone structure in their jaw. Sometimes called overdentures, these prostheses are anchored to dental implants.
  • Locator Attachment Partials – These are partial overdentures that are secured via small dental implants. This type of partial is very secure and durable.
  • Hybrid Screw-Retained Prosthesis – Patients who are missing all of their teeth may consider this type of fixed dentures as a good alternative to traditional removable dentures. Hybrid screw-retained dentures use small, screw-like dental implants to secure your dentures permanently.

Prosthodontics and Full Mouth Reconstruction

  • Implants – Dental implants are the latest and greatest in tooth replacement options. Anchored to your bone, these implants are permanent, durable, and appear identical to natural teeth.
  • Inlays and Onlays – These tooth restoration options are great for addressing large areas of decay both on the inside and outside of a tooth. Your dentists will use tooth-colored material for a natural-appearing result.
  • Mouth Guards – Custom mouth guards fitted to your unique mouth shape are a great way to help with obstructive sleep apnea and nighttime teeth grinding.
  • Sealants – Sealants are protective coatings placed over the molars to prevent cavities and general decay. Both adults and children can receive sealants.
  • Teeth Brightening and Whitening – Your Brandon Smiles dentist has professional-strength tooth whitening options that are superior to grocery store products. Let us help you remove stains that build up over time.
  • Teeth Cleaning – Dental care is centered around professional teeth cleaning. You should visit your dentist at least once every six months for a thorough cleaning to remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing simply cannot reach.
  • TMJ/TMD Treatment – Your jaw, or temporomandibular joint (TMJ), is subject to misalignment, inflammation, and other problems. If you are experiencing jaw pain, stiffness, catching, or locking, you may be suffering from temporomandibular dysfunction (TMD). The dentists of Brandon Smiles have treatments that can help.
  • Veneers – Veneers are tooth-colored “shields” for your teeth. These permanent, thin coverings can cover chipped or stained teeth, help close gaps, and protect your teeth from further damage.

Prosthodontics and Dental Surgery

  • Tooth Extractions – A tooth that is badly damaged or suffering from extensive decay sometimes needs to be extracted. An extraction is done with anesthetic, and the procedure can relieve the pain of an injured tooth as well as prevent infection. Your dentist can also discuss replacement options with you.
  • Wisdom Teeth Extractions – Wisdom teeth usually start to come in during the adolescent and young adult years. Unfortunately, there is often no room for these new teeth and overcrowding may occur if the wisdom teeth are allowed to erupt. Wisdom teeth extraction can prevent this problem.
  • Root Canals – A root canal may sound painful, but modern dental techniques allow this procedure to be almost entirely painless. A root canal is sometimes needed to remove infected pulp inside a tooth, allowing the tooth itself to be saved.

Our prosthodontists in Brandon, FL have the background and dedication necessary to ensure quality dental care, whether you need a simple cleaning and check-up or a full mouth tooth restoration. For more information or to schedule an appointment, don’t hesitate to call us.
