Prosthodontic Dentistry Simsbury and West Hartford CT
The Center For Dental Excellence, LLC offers prosthodontic dental care for patients with complex needs.
For many patients, good oral health is achieved through regular brushing and flossing, plus twice-yearly dental exams at the Center For Dental Excellence, LLC. But for others, matters are much more complex. Congenitally missing teeth, side effects from prescription medicines, ill health, or trauma are just some of the factors that may make a healthy smile hard to manage. In such cases, achieving optimal oral health may require more complex care, like the kind Dr. Nghiem and Dr. M. Christian, our prosthodontists, can provide.

Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. A doctor who practices prosthodontics has the knowledge and training to implement long-term treatment solutions. Comparatively, a dentist who focuses on conventional care may address individual issues as they come up and will often have to refer you to a prosthodontist. Not only do Dr. Nghiem and Dr. M. Christian have the needs of your entire smile in mind, they have the extra training needed to address your complex issues.
Extra Training for Complex Care
Becoming a prosthodontist requires education beyond what’s required for conventional dental care. What’s more, because dental science is constantly changing, continuing education is another important aspect. Our office has continued to learn and build a strong network of professional contacts that includes periodontists, endodontists, pediatric dentists, orthodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, master ceramists, and dental lab technicians. These relationships are built on trust, respect, and communication.
What to Expect from Prosthodontic Care
Often, when talking about conventional dental needs, a diagnosis and a treatment plan are put together in one appointment. Prosthodontics often require more time than that. Digital x-rays or a CAT scan will reveal important details about your teeth, gums, and the density of your jaw. Also important is the conversation Dr. Nghiem and Dr. M. Christian will have with you about your expectations going forward. We want to hear all about your dreams and goals, your questions, and your concerns. We can address all of them in your .
After your first visit, Dr. Nghiem and Dr. M. Christian will look at what treatment options are available to you based on the results of your exam. We’ll put together a treatment plan and discuss it with you on your next visit to our Simsbury and West Hartford, CT dental office. When we’re confident that we have a plan you’re comfortable with, we’ll begin the next step of helping you receive care.
