With patients retaining their teeth later into life and undergoing more involved and extensive treatments an increased number of people are now requiring re-treatment of complex dental work. This can occur when the current restorations have come to the end of their useful life due to recurrent dental disease or because they were not ideally designed or fabricated from the outset.
The management of these cases is often more time consuming and complex than the initial treatment. Often changes need to be made to return the teeth to health and ideal function.
A prosthodontist is able to plan the nature and sequence of treatment needed to restore your teeth back to health, function and aesthetics. The treatment will also ensure that the problems that lead to the failure are not repeated while minimising the chances of future complications.
