Sacramento Prosthodontics with Diana Fat DDS - The Specialists for Dental Implants

Millions of people lose their teeth every year because of trauma, heredity, gum disease (periodontitis) and decay. In fact, nearly one in five adults aged 65 or older have lost all of their teeth. Dental implants can be used to replace individual or multiple missing teeth. As a board-certified prosthodontist, I specialize in the restoration and replacement of damaged or missing teeth.

Missing teeth can severely impact an individual's self-confidence, job prospects, and ability to chew properly. Loose and ill-fitting partials or dentures can be uncomfortable and embarrassing. Dental implants are a durable and long-term solution for the replacement of missing teeth or the stabilization of new or existing dentures. Dental implants have been used for over 40 years, and with proper care and oral hygiene, can last a lifetime.

Prosthodontists are uniquely qualified to replace missing teeth due to extensive training using state of the art technology and procedures. Prosthodontists are the most highly trained restorative dentists in the country, practicing evidence based dentistry, which is the reason why you should choose a specialist when it comes to your smile.

Prosthodontists: The Specialists for Missing Teeth

There are an estimated 120 million people in the United States that are missing at least one tooth, and 36 million Americans are missing all teeth in one or both jaws. Missing even one tooth can severely impact an individual's confidence, job prospects, and overall health. Thankfully, there are dental specialists uniquely qualified to help restore these smiles: prosthodontists.

Prosthodontists specialize in the restoration and replacement of missing or damaged teeth. They utilize prosthetic solutions including dental implants, dentures, and veneers to help patients improve their oral health and quality of life.

"If you had a heart problem, you would go to a cardiologist. The same is true for missing or damaged teeth," said Dr. Diana Fat, "Whether it's chewing your favorite food or creating the smile of your dreams, prosthodontists are your partners in healthy, long-lasting restored teeth."

With three to four years of additional training beyond dental school, prosthodontists are prepared for even the most complex oral health issues. Whether you need to replace one tooth, or many, a prosthodontist works with you every step of the way, from consultation to follow-up care, to restore smiles and confidence.

Dr. Diana Fat of Sacramento, CA is a member of the American College of Prosthodontists, which is recognized by the American Dental Association as the organization for the specialty of prosthodontics.
