The Denturologist: A Qualified Health Professional
The denturologist is a health professional who is dedicated to the design, manufacture and installation of various types of dental prostheses: traditional or some installed on dental implants. He or she is a technician with a CEGEP technique education.
Denturologists in Quebec can work in denturology clinics or in dental clinics, as is the case at Centre Dentaire Anjou. Patients can therefore receive a full service, which begins with an assessment of their oral health and condition by the dentist. Afterwards, patients who have a greater number of teeth to replace can be referred to our denturologist. In certain cases, our specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery, or our dental surgeons will have intervened beforehand for the installation of dental implants or for the extraction of non-restorable teeth. Dental implants subsequently serve as solid supports for a prosthesis.
At Centre Dentaire Anjou, the denturologist specializes in the design of partial or complete removable dentures.
The Role of the Denturologist
In light of the diagnosis and the information provided by the dentist, the denturologist carries out their own assessment of the patient’s needs. Afterwards, a treatment plan is drawn up. This includes the type of prosthesis that is favored according to the number of teeth to be replaced, it takes into account the presence or absence of dental implants, as well as the patient’s oral condition. Each step of the treatment plan is explained in depth.
Once the treatment plan has been accepted, the denturologist performs the necessary steps to design the personalized dental prosthesis. He or she is also responsible for the installation of the prosthesis and its adjustments. Thereafter, the necessary advice is provided to the patient to properly maintain their prosthesis. Follow-up appointments are also offered, in order to ensure that the prosthesis is still in good condition, that it is well fitted and that it continues to meet the patient’s needs.
