Prosthodontics* is the specialty branch of dentistry that pertains to the restoration and maintenance of oral function using artificial devices known as dental prosthetics. Dr. Mailloux strives to help patients keep their teeth for a lifetime but she understands that sometimes prosthodontic solutions, such as dentures, partials and implants, are necessary for tooth replacement. Besides traditional dentures and partials, prosthodontic dentistry has expanded to provide implant-retained and implant-supported dentures.
Mailloux Dentistry offers a wide range of comfortable prosthetic solutions that will help you maintain functionality, desirable appearance and oral health. In order to diagnose the type of prosthetic device that will best rehabilitate your smile, Dr. Mailloux collects a series of photos, X-rays and dental impressions. Using these records, she will build a treatment plan designed specifically for your unique needs.
Without a prosthodontic specialist in the local area, Mailloux Dentistry has responded to patient demand by offering complex prosthodontic* solutions. Dr. Mailloux previously worked with a prosthodontist and that experience early on developed her continued interest in advanced prosthodontic technology. Additionally, Dr. Mailloux has established a strong working relationship with West Michigan Oral Surgery, whose office is located in the same building, and that collaborative partnership has allowed Mailloux Dentistry to provide patients with implant prosthetics.
Whether you have questions or concerns about an existing denture or think you may be in need of a prosthetic solution, there are a number of options available to you. Please contact our office today at (616) 392-3717 to schedule a consultation.
