Important Terms to Know About Denturists
A denturist is a dental technician responsible for making dental appliances of all kinds, such as bridges and dentures. Also known as a dental prosthetist, this member of the oral health care system takes impressions of the mouth and teeth, then creates removable oral prostheses for the patient. He or she may fit the patient for these devices as well. The result is a custom fit designed for each person’s mouth. Here are some important terms to know when it comes to denturists.

Endodontics: A specialty in dentistry that involves the study and treatment of tooth pulp and surrounding tooth areas. Endodontists are the professionals who provide root canal therapy, treat cracked teeth and address dental trauma.

Prosthodontist: The dental professional who provides diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and maintenance of oral function as it pertains to comfort and appearance for patients with missing teeth.

Denture Relining: Sometimes dentures require relining or other types of adjustments over time. This is required if the dentures become loose or wear down.

Dental Implants: Root devices that take the place of natural tooth roots to support restorations such as crowns. They are usually made of titanium. Also known as root-form endosseous implants, these are placed within the bone and resemble an actual tooth root.

Removable Partial Dentures: Removable devices for patients who have lost just some of their teeth on a particular arch. In contrast, fixed partial dentures are created from crowns that fit on the teeth acting as abutments. Fixed bridges cost more than removable bridges but offer more stability.

If you want to replace or repair your teeth for medical or cosmetic reasons, you will need to see a dental specialist. Your general dentist can recommend a dental professional who is right for you. Before your treatment, there are a few questions you should consider asking about your dental work.

  • What are my options for improving the appearance or function of my teeth?
    If you are missing all your teeth, the denturist can make a you a full denture. If you are missing several teeth on your top or bottom arch, a prosthodontist may be able to fit you with dental implants and crowns or you may need a denturist to make you partial dentures. If you have a damaged tooth, a specialist in endodontics may be able to fix the tooth or you may need to have it extracted. It is good to know all your options, so you can make an informed decision.

  • After the procedure what steps should I take?
    If you are having teeth extracted or a crown installed you will need to follow the directions of your dentist or oral surgeon carefully to avoid infections or painful complications. If you are having a root canal, a specialist in endodontics can tell you what follow up care your tooth will need, like avoiding chewing with it. No matter what option you choose it is important to follow your dental professional's instructions.

  • How much will it cost?
    Dental work can get expensive, especially, if you do not have dental insurance. It is a good idea to ask about the pricing and payment plans for your different options, so you can find one that fits your budget.
