BALTIMORE, MD, December 14, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- If you or a loved one are missing teeth, you are not alone. An estimated 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth, according to the American College of Prosthodontists. Whether you are missing one tooth or many, a prosthodontist like Baltimore, MD prosthodontist, Dr. K. Michael Murphy, can help.
If you have not heard of a prosthodontist before, you have likely heard of a prosthodontist's services. These include procedures such as crowns, bridges, dental implants and full or partial dentures. Procedures that replace or re-create missing teeth are all a part of a prosthodontist's work. The American Dental Association recognizes nine dental specialties-prosthodontics is one of them.
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Murphy has undergone specialized training in oral health conditions that may lead to tooth loss as well as how to address tooth loss.
"Prosthodontists are often called the 'quarterbacks' of the dental world," says Dr. Murphy, who makes dentures in Baltimore. "We coordinate treatments and act as a leader on even the most complicated cases, including treating congenital defects to addressing tooth loss due to severe gum disease."
Dr. Murphy offers a number of prosthodontic interventions to replace or repair missing and/or damaged teeth. For example, if you are missing a tooth, Dr. Murphy offers dental implants. This process involves implanting a titanium artificial tooth root and covering it with a crown to replace a lost or missing tooth. The resulting implant is sturdy and long lasting-dental implants have been known to last 40 years or more.
Crowns are also used to create dental bridges, which can replace a single missing tooth. As a Baltimore prosthodontist, Dr. Murphy can create a pontic or artificial tooth that is anchored on either side by dental crowns. The result means you no longer have to live with a highly noticeable, missing tooth.
Dr. Murphy also offers dentures in Baltimore. Dentures are a means to replace lost or missing teeth on both the top and bottom teeth. Not only do dentures offer a better cosmetic result, they also allow wearers to eat and speak with greater ease.
As a prosthodontist, Dr. Murphy has undergone an additional three years of specialized training in these and other prosthodontist interventions. When you count on a Baltimore prosthodontist like Dr. Murphy, you know you are receiving care from a dentist who understands how complicated replacing a tooth or several teeth can be and how to create results that look as natural as possible.
