Fixed and removable prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). Although prosthodontists are responsible for performing an incredibly wide variety of procedures on a daily basis, the basis of their practices revolves around dental restoration techniques. These techniques have changed over the years, with new methods and procedures being developed all of the time.

Oral pathology

Desquamative gingivitis is a cutaneous condition characterized by diffuse gingival erythema with varying degrees of mucosal sloughing and erosion.

A band of red atrophic or eroded mucosa affecting the attached gingiva is known as dequamative gingivitis.

Oral Surgery and Extractions

A dental extraction (also referred to as exodontia) is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.
