What Is Prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, treatment planning, and rehabilitation of patients who have missing or damaged teeth or who have issues with their oral and maxillofacial structures.
Prosthodontists like Dr. Jensen are highly skilled and trained to restore and replace teeth and reconstruct oral and facial tissues using a range of dental materials and techniques.
Dr. Jensens’ work encompasses various procedures, such as complete and partial dentures, crowns, bridges, and implant-supported restorations, as well as maxillofacial prosthetics for patients with complex dental and craniofacial conditions.

Implant Supported Dentures
Removable dentures aren’t your only option anymore. With implant-supported dentures, Dr. Jensen can secure your dentures firmly in place.

A cracked, broken or worn tooth or teeth can make you susceptible to more serious oral health problems unless you have them repaired. At Jensen Orthodontic Arts, we can restore your smile with a dental crown!
Dr. Doug Jensen will create this custom restoration so that it fits securely over the affected tooth, protecting the tooth and your overall dental health.
Jaw Interventions at Jensen Orthodontics Arts
Typically, Dr. Jensen can correct crooked teeth and bad bites with orthodontics alone. In certain cases, problems with jaw formation and misalignment of the jaw bones can lead to the need for more direct intervention.
At Jensen Orthodontics Arts, we offer our patients in McKinney the following treatments for jaw misalignment:
Dr. Jensen can often correct crooked teeth and bad bites with orthodontics alone. In some cases, however, surgery may be necessary due to problems with jaw formation and misalignment of the jaw bones.
Surgically assisted cases still require braces in place, so Dr. Jensen works with a specialist in orthognathic surgery to address jaw-related issues. Jaw surgery is combined with orthodontics to ensure that your teeth come together in a healthy way.
Improving jaw relationships also helps with long-term retention of orthodontic results and better prevents wear and tear on teeth over time. Fortunately, unlike in the past, surgery now seldom requires wiring the jaws shut during healing.
Do you experience chronic jaw, face or head pain? Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to temporomandibular disorder, or TMD. But what is TMJ?
The temporomandibular joints (TMJ) are the complex joints on the right and left sides of your face that connect your lower jaw to the base of the skull, allowing you to talk and chew. Dr. Jensen and the team have plenty of experience dealing with TMJ, no matter the severity.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a chronic condition in which you experience shallow breathing, or pauses in breathing, while you sleep. As one of the leading causes of excessive daytime sleepiness, the condition is more common than you may think.
Sleep apnea is also very tough on the body’s systems and requires long-term management. Lifestyle changes, mouthpieces, surgery, and breathing devices can successfully treat sleep apnea in many people. Dr. Jensen has extensive training in the use of mandibular advancement devices to treat sleep apnea.
As an orthodontist, he’s in a unique position to deal with any rare dental side effects due to wearing the devices. After screening for this condition at our office in McKinney, Dr. Jensen work with your physician to form the formal diagnosis of sleep apnea.
Our team at Jensen Orthodontic Arts will then fabricate the appropriate appliance to enhance upper airway ventilation, dramatically improving the quality of your sleep and life overall.
