I broke a permanent tooth. Should I consider prosthodontics?

Yes. If you break or lose a permanent tooth, prosthodontics can repair the damage and prevent other oral health problems. 

Dr. Ripa has over 20 years of experience designing and placing custom dental restorations. He regularly partners with nearby dental labs to fabricate dentures, bridges, and other restorative treatments. There’s even a CEREC machine onsite, capable of creating crowns from porcelain and zirconia.

Who can benefit from prosthodontics?

You might benefit from prosthodontics at Trump Village Dental if you have any of the following:

  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • Cosmetic concerns
  • Mouth or facial pain
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain
  • Severely damaged teeth

Prosthodontics can restore your smile if you’ve lost one or more teeth to extractions, poor oral hygiene, or trauma.

What are some examples of prosthodontics?

Trump Village Dental offers several types of prosthodontics, including:

Same-day crowns

A same-day crown is a synthetic cap that Dr. Ripa bonds on top of a damaged or severely decaying tooth. The crown restores your tooth’s size, shape, and appearance. 

Same-day crowns take less than two hours to make and apply. You can bite and chew with them immediately after placement, so there’s no downtime or recovery period.

Dental implants

Dental implants are titanium posts that Dr. Ripa inserts into your empty tooth sockets. After placement, the implants integrate with your bone and provide a sturdy foundation for crowns, bridges, or implant-anchored dentures. Dental implants are some of the sturdiest restorative options. 


Dentures are removable appliances that replace some (or all) of your teeth. 

Dr. Ripa offers partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures replace just a few of your teeth, whereas complete dentures replace an entire dental arch.

What type of prosthodontics might benefit me?

Before making any treatment recommendations, Dr. Ripa reviews your dental records, completes an oral exam, and takes a series of 3D digital X-rays. 

After gathering the necessary information, he develops a personalized prosthodontic treatment plan. The goal of treatment is to restore your smile, improve your oral health, and preserve your teeth for years to come.
