Your mouth doesn’t lie. If you’re suffering from puffy, bleeding, or receding gums, persistent bad breath, or loose or missing teeth, talk to Dr. Fawzi Hijazi of San Antonio Smile Pros about our extensive periodontic services.
Periodontics encompasses the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions of the supporting and surrounding tissues of the teeth, as well as the maintenance of the health, function, and appearance of these structures. During the late stages of gum disease, periodontics and prosthodontics often go hand-in-hand.
What is prosthodontics? Prosthodontics is the art and science of treating complex dental and facial matters, like restoring and replacing damaged or missing teeth. Our in-house prosthodontist and prosthodontics team specializes in offering the best dental implants, crowns, dentures, and more.
What is a prosthodontist, and why should you see one? Prosthodontists (like Dr. Hijazi) have additional, advanced training in restorative dentistry and replacing teeth.
There are various reasons why one might need to visit a prosthodontist. Whether you were born with a congenital condition, suffered from a traumatic injury or oral cancer, or want to boost the way your smile looks, you can receive exceptional tooth-replacement services at a prosthodontist’s office.
