Ralph M. Hoffmann, DMD
Prosthodontics is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Though not as commonly recognized as orthodontics or oral surgery, prosthodontics is represented in the Carolinas by an office that has served the communityäó»s needs for almost 35 years.
Prosthodontists restore and rebuild teeth that have been damaged or lost or were never properly formed. Thorough understanding of form, function, aesthetics, materials, and techniques are the hallmarks of additional years spent in residencies to become a prosthodontist. Today’s prosthodontic residencies require an additional three years of intense clinical and didactic study beyond that of a dentist.
Dr. Ralph Hoffmann and Dr. Mollie Griswold fill a vital role in the Charlotte region by providing excellent prosthodontic treatment options for patients with tooth and oral restoration needs. Using state-of-the-art procedures, they deliver a wide range of solutions, including crowns, fixed bridges, veneers, implant-supported restorations, removable partials, and full dentures.
Drs. Hoffmann and Griswold take the time to give thorough consideration to your needs. They are craftspeople in their own right, and their office has the modern equipment and trained staff to deliver a customized and quality result. They team with the best professionals in dentistry to optimize your result.
So if you’re missing part of a tooth or all of your teeth, this is the specialty for you. If you want to see what implants can do to give you the smile and function you desire, this is the specialty for you. If you’ve had implants placed and the work wasnäó»t up to expectation, this is the specialty for you.
äóìWe help patients understand what improvements are possible and work closely with them to develop a comprehensive treatment plan,äó Dr. Griswold says. äóìTogether, we decide on which options fit their needs. Itäó»s deeply rewarding to make a difference in patients’ lives.äó
