A good prosthodontist should have extensive training, attention to detail, strong communication skills, technical expertise, and compassionate patient care skills. They should be able to provide high-quality, customised treatment to patients with missing or deficient teeth or oral and maxillofacial tissues.

The main objective of prosthodontics is to restore and enhance the function and appearance of a patient’s teeth, jaws, and surrounding structures. Prosthodontists specialise in the diagnosis, treatment planning, and delivery of oral prostheses such as dentures, bridges, and dental implants to replace missing teeth or restore damaged teeth.

Prosthodontic treatment also includes the restoration of natural teeth that have been damaged by decay, trauma, or disease, and the management of conditions that affect the mouth and jaws, such as temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).

The goal of prosthodontic treatment is to provide patients with a functional, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing oral environment that enables them to speak, eat, and smile with confidence. Prosthodontics is a vital part of comprehensive dental care and can improve the quality of life for patients with missing or damaged teeth or oral and maxillofacial tissues.

To practise prosthodontics, you need manual dexterity, attention to detail, analytical and problem-solving skills, communication and interpersonal skills, patience, and empathy. These skills enable prosthodontists to create customised prostheses and comprehensive treatment plans that meet patients’ oral health needs and personal preferences.
