What is a Prosthodontist?
West Palm Beach, FL


A prosthodontist is a dentist who is an expert in restoring and replacing teeth. Our prosthodontist at Roy C. Blake III, DDS, MSD, Maxillofacial Prosthodontist creates beautiful smiles and restores missing teeth. Our work in restorative dentistry can improve your look, your function and your health.

Who Prosthodontists Are


Prosthodontics is the creation and customization of dental appliances to restore missing teeth. It is one of nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). To be recognized as one, we first complete four years of dental school followed by three years of specialized training through the ADA. A prosthodontist is specialized in creating a treatment plan to restore missing teeth, meaning we know how to improve your fit, comfort, feel and look when replacing missing teeth..

When You’ll Need A Prosthodontist


We demand a lot of our teeth; they are important to our facial structure, what we can eat and even our speech. Losing even one tooth can lead to a cascade of problems. Regardless of whether it is due to an accident or a natural part of the aging process, you’ll want to replace a missing tooth as soon as possible.

What Prosthodontists Specialize In


We offer a variety of solutions for replacing missing and damaged teeth. Options may include:

•  Dental Veneer: A dental veneer is a customized porcelain shell that will alter the facial appearance of a tooth. It can hide chips while improving the color and allow us to adjust the size and width to improve the look.
•  Dental Crown: A dental crown is a cap designed to fit over and encase a natural tooth or dental implant. We use crowns to restore missing teeth or to protect severely damaged teeth.
•  Dental Bridge: A dental bridge is used to restore a single or up to three missing teeth. A bridge consists of two crowns on either end, that will cover natural healthy teeth or tooth implants, with false teeth between.
•  Partial Denture or Full Denture: A denture is used to replace multiple or even all of your teeth on an arch. Dentures today can be used in combination with dental implants for a permanent and secure hold.
•  Dental Implant: A dental implant is not a replacement tooth, rather it is a replacement root that we can then use a prosthetic on to restore missing teeth.

Regardless of which of these procedures is deemed right for you, we will work with you every step of the way. Dr. Roy Blake will work with you to create a treatment plan and our team will strive to help you feel comfortable while creating a look that will help you feel more self confident. Our team is specially trained to manage any complexities we may encounter throughout this process, so you can enjoy having all the benefits brought about by having a full, healthy smile in your life again.
