What Is Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a dental specialty that involves the diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation, and maintenance of patients' oral health, function, and appearance. Patients who benefit from prosthodontics often include those who have suffered a face or mouth injury, have age-related tooth loss, or have clinical conditions that result in maxillofacial deficiencies.

Why Choose a Prosthodontist Instead of a Traditional Dentist?

In addition to achieving a bachelor's degree and completing dental school, prosthodontists must complete an additional three years of residency training and education through an ADA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program. With this training, a prosthodontist can:

  • Create custom restorations
  • Place dental implants
  • Correct TMJ disorders
  • Correct sleep and snoring problems

Though a traditional dentist may have some training in prosthodontics and provide dentistry solutions like crowns and dentures, a prosthodontist is extensively trained in this area and can handle complex cases. Your dentist may even refer you to our Southlake, TX, prosthodontist for care.

Our prosthodontist can help you explore treatment options and determine the best way to restore your oral health, function, and appearance.

Our Available Prosthodontic Services

At Fuqua Advanced Dental in Southlake, TX, we provide patients with a variety of solutions for tooth damage and loss. During a consultation, you can tell our prosthodontist about your concerns and he will assess your dental health before deciding on the optimal treatment plan. Your treatment may include:


Dental crowns can cap a damaged tooth to protect the remaining structure and restore functionality. Implant-supported crowns can completely replace a single tooth. We craft our crowns with materials like porcelain so the restoration is indistinguishable from your natural teeth.

Dental Bridge


A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth that is supported on either side by crowned abutment teeth or dental implants. Bridges can replace areas of tooth loss of up to three teeth in a row.

Full Denture

Full Dentures

A denture replaces an entire arch of teeth to restore dental function. Our dentures are custom molded to fit over your dental arch to ensure your comfort. Dentures can also be supported by dental implants for a more secure fit.

Partial Dentures

Partial Dentures

If a patient still has some remaining healthy teeth, but gaps that are too large to be treated by a dental bridge, they can benefit from a partial denture. This dentistry solution can restore areas of tooth loss throughout the mouth and prevent the remaining teeth from shifting out of place.

Dental Implant

Dental Implants

Implants replace tooth roots, prevent the jawbone atrophy that occurs after tooth loss, and support restorations to return dental function. Our prosthodontist can complete every step in the implant placement process, from planning your surgery to connecting your restoration.


Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are bonded to the front surface of a tooth to conceal flaws like chips, discoloration, and gaps. Though dentists can provide veneers, our Southlake, TX, prosthodontist has developed a mastery of aesthetics and function that allow him to create stunning, lifelike veneers.


Full Mouth Reconstruction

A full mouth reconstruction combines restorative and general treatments to address multiple concerns and completely rehabilitate a patient's oral health. Treatment is tailored to the patient and can address decay, gum disease, tooth loss, and more.

To provide the very best care, Dr. Steven Fuqua may collaborate with dentists, specialists, or other healthcare professionals to create a treatment tailored to a patient's needs and resolve their dental concerns.

The Dangers of Damaged and Missing Teeth

Damaged Teeth

Not only can chips and cracks affect the appearance of your smile and cause sensitivity, but they can also leave the interior of your tooth exposed, causing cavities and infections. Our Southlake, TX, office can provide you with restorations like dental crowns to protect the structure of affected teeth.

Missing Teeth

When a tooth falls out, the jawbone doesn't receive the stimulation it needs, so the bone tissue deteriorates. This can cause the surrounding teeth to shift out of place and even result in further tooth loss as the bone weakens. We can provide you with dental implants and restorations to improve dental function.

Treating Jaw Disorders

Not only can prosthodontists restore damaged and missing teeth, but they can also treat jaw disorders that can lead to widespread damage and the inability to open your mouth. The temporomandibular area is complex and involves muscles, joints, and ligaments. A trained prosthodontist understands how this complex area works and can provide you with comfortable and conservative treatment like an oral appliance.

Dr. Fuqua also provides treatment for sleep and snoring disorders, problems that can also be corrected with oral appliances.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will a dental crown, bridge, veneer, or denture last?

With proper care and maintenance, your restoration can last for 15 years or more. However, please keep in mind that the porcelain will wear over time and will eventually need to be replaced. Practicing proper oral hygiene and avoiding using your teeth as a tool will help keep your restoration beautiful for years to come. 

How do I care for a restoration?

This will depend on your type of restoration. Veneers and implant-supported restorations like dental crowns and dental bridges can be treated just like your natural teeth. Brush with a soft bristle toothbrush and non-abrasive toothpaste at least twice a day for two minutes. Don't forget to floss. For removable restorations like traditional dentures, you will remove them to brush and soak. Don't forget to clean your gums and tongue. 

Can't I just see my dentist for prosthodontic care?

Some dentists do perform prosthodontic treatments. However, our prosthodontist has extensive and specialized training in the field of prosthodontics. He has the skill and experience to handle even the most complex cases. 

I have dental anxiety or phobia. Can you still help?

Yes. We offer sedation dentistry options to help patients with anxiety, phobia, and sensitivity or for those who simply have a difficult time sitting for long periods for treatment. During your consultation, your prosthodontist can discuss your options to ensure your treatment is as comfortable and positive as possible.
