Last week, we discussed the orthodontic, periodontic, and endodontic services we provide to our Riverside, CA dental patients at Dental Associates of Riverside. Today, we’d like to discuss two other dental services we offer that go beyond the realm of general and preventive dental care: prosthodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery.
What is Prosthodontic Treatment?
Prosthodontics is the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance, and health of our patients.
We use prosthodontic treatment to help our patients with missing teeth restore their smiles. The most common types of dental prostheses include dental implants, bridges, dentures, and partials. To find out if prosthodontic treatment can help you restore function, health, and beauty to your smile, contact Dental Associates of Riverside to reserve a consultation appointment with your Riverside dentist. Depending on your specific needs and smile goals, we will suggest the dental appliance that will best help you fall in love with your smile.
What is Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery?
Oral and maxillofacial surgery refers to procedures including the extraction of wisdom teeth, the correction of misaligned jaws, the removal of harmful cysts and tumors of the jaw and mouth, and the placement of dental implants. We’re proud to offer this specialty dental service at Dental Associates of Riverside, and we want you to know that you’re in highly trained and experience hands when it comes to your dental procedure.
To ensure your comfort during your surgery, the dentists and dental team at our Riverside dentist office are trained to administer anesthesia as needed.
