But what if one expert could address many of these concerns, offering a seamless approach to dental health? Enter the world of Dr. Jensen, where the precision of orthodontics meets the artistry of prosthodontics. Keep reading to explore the synergy of these dual specialties and discover how they come together to transform smiles at Jensen Orthodontic Arts.
What Is A Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontics is a specialized field in dentistry dedicated to restoring and replacing missing or damaged teeth. Imagine losing a tooth or several; it’s not just the appearance that’s affected, but the way you speak, eat and express yourself. This specialty goes beyond mere aesthetics; it’s about rejuvenating the functionality of your mouth, ensuring you can confidently go about your day.
Prosthodontists like Dr. Jensen undergo rigorous training to master the diagnostic procedure as well as various dental materials and techniques. Their expertise covers a broad spectrum of procedures, from dentures, bridges, and crowns to more intricate treatments like veneers and implant-supported restorations.
However, prosthodontics doesn’t stop at teeth. It also rehabilitates the entire oral and maxillofacial structure, ensuring that every part of the mouth works harmoniously. This holistic approach ensures that patients don’t just get a patchwork solution but instead receive a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to their unique needs.
Dr. Jensen’s Orthodontic Passion

He was fascinated by the use of orthodontics to normalize the bite and alignment and decided to become one of the handful of dual specialists in the country.
As a board-certified orthodontist, he stands among an elite group of professionals who have gone the extra mile to demonstrate their commitment to excellence. This certification is a testament to his mastery in diagnosing, preventing, and treating dental and facial irregularities. With a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of the intricate dynamics of the oral structure, Dr. Jensen employs the latest advancements in orthodontic care to ensure optimal results. Whether using braces or clear aligners to address overbites and underbites or guiding teeth to their ideal positions, you can trust Dr. Jensen’s expertise to deliver a beautiful and functionally sound smile.

How Prosthodontics And Orthodontics Work Together
While distinct in their focus, orthodontics and prosthodontics beautifully complement each other in comprehensive dental care.
Think of orthodontics as the foundation layer, ensuring teeth are well-aligned, correctly spaced, and optimal for the bite. This alignment is not just about aesthetics; it’s about creating the right environment for the mouth to function at its best.
Prosthodontics builds upon this foundation. Once teeth are aligned correctly, any restorations, replacements, or enhancements fit better and last longer. For instance, a dental implant or bridge will have a longer lifespan and better functionality when placed in a mouth where teeth are properly aligned. Similarly, well-aligned teeth ensure dentures fit more comfortably, and prosthetic restorations appear more natural.
