What is a Prosthodontist?

You’ve likely heard of a prosthodontist before, but you may not be sure exactly what their role is compared to a traditional dentist. Unlike traditional dentists, prosthodontists receive three years of additional training, specializing in the diagnosis, treatment, planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of oral function, appearance, comfort and health. The term “prostho” means “replacement” and the term “dontist” means “dealing with teeth.” Whether you need a single tooth replaced or you’re in need of a full-mouth replacement, our prosthodontist serving Lakeview and surrounding areas are here to help. 

We strive to combine our expertise with a welcoming and relaxing office environment to completely change your experience of visiting a dental professional. Consider prosthodontists as THE standard when it comes to any replacements or improvements that need to be made in how your mouth functions.

Here’s a look at a recent customer testimonial: “Dr. Nihal is AMAZING. I cannot express how grateful I am to have found her. I damaged my front teeth in middle school and suffered through many dental issues and many dentists. When I saw Dr. Nihal the issue was that my front veneers kept falling out. Not only was she the first dentist to actually correct the issue, but she gave me a beautiful smile in the process. I am so happy to be able to smile without thinking about it, and I love that I found a dentist I can trust to do what’s right. On top of that, all the staff at Lincoln Dental Care are very kind and helpful.” -Lia D. via Yelp

Services That We Offer

Any services that revolve around restoring missing teeth and improving jaw structures is in our area of expertise. As leaders in the area of dental treatment plans, we work with our team and our patients to map out a path to a healthy, functional and beautiful smile. Here is a list of the services that we offer:

  • All-on-4 Dentures: The functionality of our natural teeth decreases with age, so All-on-4 dentures are a permanent tooth-replacement option that simultaneously promotes the growth of new jaw bone. Unlike traditional dentures that are removed periodically, All-on-4 dentures are permanently affixed to your natural jaw bone to help improve the process of talking and eating. With tooth loss so prevalent, with 57 percent of adults over the age of 65 opting to replace their missing teeth with some sort of denture, we can walk you through this restoration process. 
  • Tooth-colored bonding: Another one of our services includes tooth-colored bonding, a simple way to improve the overall functionality and appearance of your smile. Think of tooth-colored bonding as a less expensive and shorter-lasting version of veneers. 

 

  • Dental implants: If you have one or multiple cracked, missing, or damaged teeth, consider dental implants to help improve the aesthetic and functionality of your smile. These implants have anchors that are placed into the patient’s jawline for a secure, long-lasting solution to missing teeth. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. 
  • Porcelain veneers, crowns and bridges: Porcelain veneers are an ideal way to cover the appearance of stains, cracks, chips, and overall misshapen teeth. Additionally, a dental crown is a cap that covers damaged teeth, and it may be attached via a dental implant. Bridges are a series of crowns to help restore multiple missing teeth that are next to one another. 
  • Occlusal guards and sleep apnea devices: Occlusal guards are designed to help patients avoid damage from bruxism, or teeth grinding, during the night. About 10-15 percent of adults suffer from teeth grinding, so this simple device can help prevent damage.
