A prosthodontist is a dentist who is able to diagnose, treatment plan and carry out rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort and health of patients with clinical issues associated with missing teeth or maxillofacial tissues using the latest materials available.
We have Dr Guv Bhirth who has a special interest in prosthodontics and has been qualified since 1997 . He also treatment plans and restores all dental implants placed by Dr Ubhi at the practice as well as carrying out a full range of fixed and removable prosthodontics. Tempromandibular joint disorders – TMJ and rehabilitation of occlusion all fall under his field of expertise.
Below are some of the cases carried out at BPI Dental.
This gentleman presented with very broken down upper anterior teeth. Several options were discussed with him and the patient decided to go ahead with fixed bridgework and the patient was extremely pleased with the final result.
This gentleman was referred for dental implant therapy for his terminal dentition. This was a complex case as the patient had a cleft lip also. The implants were placed by Dr Ubhi and the restoration was done By Dr Tambra. This was restored with removable dentures that were held in by locator abutments.
The lady was referred for dental implants as she had a loose lower denture. Various options were discussed with her of implant rehabilitation or removable dentures with precision attachments. The implant option would have involved bilateral nerve lateralisations. She did not want to go ahead with this surgical procedure and favoured the second option of removable appliances with precision attachments. The patient was extremely pleased with the post-operative results as her dentures were much better looking and much more retentive.
