What is a Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in the diagnosis, restoration, and maintenance of teeth.

This includes teeth function, appearance, health, and replacement.

A prosthodontist must attend an additional three years of education after dental school and pass an examination by the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.

Prosthodontist Calgary - Dr. Ryan KeyesMeet Our Prosthodontist – Dr. Ryan Keyes

After completing a Bachelors Degree in Science, Dr. Ryan Keyes completed his dental training at the University of Sydney.

Following dental school, Dr. Keyes completed an additional 3 years of training focused specifically on the Specialty of Prosthetic Dentistry by completing a residency in Prosthetic Dentistry at the University of Minnesota.

He has completed Specialty level examination and Certification in Prosthodontics and is a Fellow with the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.

As an in-house Prosthodontist at Sierra Dental, Dr. Ryan Keyes provides a full range of Prosthetic Dental treatment options including Crowns, Bridges, Veneers, Dentures and Dental Implants.

These treatment options can be used to replace missing teeth, restore worn teeth, improve the oral aesthetic appearance, enhance oral function, and ultimately restore and maintain your oral health.

Each oral rehabilitation procedure is custom-tailored to suit the unique treatment needs of each individual patient.

The Benefits of Prosthodontic Treatments

Prosthodontic treatments are advanced restorative and rehabilitative treatment options that can help restore the function and aesthetics of your teeth.

A prosthodontist can provide a range of treatments to patients, including:

Tooth Crown

A tooth crown is a dental prosthetic that restores a tooth back to its normal shape and size.

When a tooth is cracked or decayed, a prosthodontist can cement a crown permanently to restore a tooth’s strength and health.

Bridges

A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth.

A bridge uses two or more crowns, called abutment teeth, to anchor a false tooth or teeth along a gap of missing teeth.

Dental Veneers

A veneer is a coating of material, usually made of porcelain, to repair and protect teeth.

Veneer bonds to tooth enamel and can be used to repair chips, stains, gaps or misshaped teeth.

Dentures

Dentures are a partial or full set of false teeth.

They are made to fit a patient’s mouth and help with function for chewing, talking, and aesthetically.

Dentures come in a few different variants and can usually be removed and cleaned regularly.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are used as replacement tooth roots.

A dental implant can be used to permanently affix a fake tooth or dental bridge onto a patient’s gums.

Occlusal Guards

Occlusal guards, also called night guards, protect teeth from clenching and grinding while a patient sleeps.

They’re similar to mouth guards used in sports, but are made from thin, smooth plastic and made specifically for the patient’s mouth.

When is it Time to See a Specialist?

Losing teeth is more common than some people realize in Canada.

According to a study published by the National Center for Biotechnology and Information (NCBI), 10% of Canadians lose a tooth each year.

Patients should understand they have many options available when it comes to how their smiles look and don’t have to live with missing teeth.

You will want to see a prosthodontist if you:

  • Have worn or damaged teeth
  • Are unsatisfied with the appearance and function of your teeth
  • Are missing one or more teeth
  • Are interested in dental implants
  • Wear dentures or removable partial dentures
  • Want to optimize the aesthetics of your smile.

Losing a tooth requires the help of a certified professional.

Our prosthodontist in Calgary can restore lost oral function, repair damaged, or replace missing teeth, and use multidisciplinary techniques to make a patient’s smile look natural and healthy.

If you are unsatisfied with your teeth, contacting our prosthodontist for information about your options is a valuable first step.

As a full-service clinic, we are able to provide specialist level care to your Prosthodontic Dental therapies.

Our prosthodontist will work with your general dentist here at Sierra while incorporating with our periodontist and orthodontist if needed during your treatment process.

This team approach can optimize treatment outcomes and ensures the continuation of care for your long-term dental health.

We are happy to answer your important questions and look forward to hearing from you.
