Prosthodontics is the specialty of dentistry concerned with the replacement and repair of teeth using artificial materials.
We aim to restore damaged and unsightly teeth to enable patients to eat, smile and communicate happily. Advances in materials and manufacturing technology allows the modern dentist to rebuild worn and broken down teeth with a much wider range of safe and long-lasting and aesthetic materials than before. The replacement of missing teeth can now be accomplished more effectively using a range of fixed and removable solutions.
The UCLan dental clinic is a dedicated educational facility where qualified dentists undertake treatment of patients under close supervision as part of an advanced training programme in prosthodontics. Our clinical staff are well-qualified and have extensive experience in the management of more complex cases and provide support and guidance to the training dentists.
Treatment is usually carried out under local anaesthesia, but many procedures do not require an anaesthetic. The length of each course of treatment depends on the amount and complexity of the treatment required. As the dentists are in training and need to discuss your care with the supervisors, appointments will take longer than in an NHS practice – on average, one to two hours. They also attend only on specific days within University term times.
We endeavour to provide the highest quality and most appropriate treatment for you, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and advanced materials. We are dedicated to your comfort and wellbeing during and after your appointment.
Each patient will be assessed on an individual basis and costs will be outlined following diagnosis. Below are designed to indicate costs for restorative treatments and are subject to change. For more information on fees, please contact us.
