A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating complex dental and facial matters, including the restoration and replacement of missing or damaged teeth using artificial devices.

Dr. Victoria Vickers is the prosthodontist at The Masters Dental Group. After dental school at UT Health-San Antonio, she enrolled in the 2-year prosthodontics program there to receive her training. As a specialized dentist, Dr. Vickers has advanced training in implants, crowns, dentures, and restoration of a worn dentition. “I’m the person someone goes to as their last step in rebuilding their mouth,” she said.

Who Can a Prosthodontist Help?

Individuals who need prosthodontics usually have an advanced dental disease that requires the care of a specialist like Dr. Vickers. Patients seeking prosthodontic treatment may need a well-fitting denture, implants, or an implant-supported denture. “Their teeth have gotten so worn-down to the point where they need to do something about it. These patients usually have complex cases that a general dentist doesn’t have the training to treat,” said Dr. Vickers.

Improving Function & Appearance

Through Dr. Vickers’ advanced training, she’s learned how to rebuild the smile by customizing the teeth for the patient. She uses implants, crowns, dentures or a combination of those. Prosthodontics can rebuild the smile and give the patient the ability to eat, speak and chew. In addition to improving function, prosthodontics can help improve a patient’s oral health, which leads to improved overall health.

Using various cosmetic dentistry treatments, Dr. Vickers can give patients confidence they never had. “They now can have confidence in social events where they may have been shy about attending things because they’ve had problems with their teeth and an inability to eat,” she said.
