Dr. Steven Feit, a prosthodontist in Boca Raton, has spent years studying occlusion and all of its intricacies. He puts that knowledge to work to craft aesthetically pleasing, long-lasting restorations for patients. Are you a dental or medical professional looking to team up with an expert to enable your patients enjoy the best possible results from their restorations? Dr. Feit often accepts referrals from his fellow dentists, oral surgeons, and medical practitioners. Let’s discuss what you can expect when you choose to work with him on your larger restorative cases.
You may have noticed that the education you received in dental school was fairly basic, especially when it came to occlusion. Dr. Feit, on the other hand, places a large emphasis on occlusion because it plays such a big role in a restoration’s long-term viability. For example, not only does he ensure that restorations have even contact, but he also makes sure that the positions of the opposing teeth are unlikely to shorten a restoration’s lifespan by placing extra stress on it.
Dr. Feit's research team has identified criteria for success. The foundation of which is occlusion. This is not new and is based on over thirty years of study. These principles are tried and true and proven in clinical cases, so it is no longer guess work. These studies are pending publication and Dr. Feit has lectured extensively for the past three decades on the subject to very prestigious dental societies and at international symposia.
Dr. Feit has an in-depth understanding of the mechanics of oral function. He uses the retromolar pads as the basis for designing restorations that can withstand significant bite force and help patients avoid long-term complications from their restorations, such as TMJ problems or unevenly developed facial muscles.
Here are a few reasons why you may find it beneficial to partner with Dr. Feit:
Much of Dr. Feit’s practice is centered around restoring dental implants. In fact, he often works closely with a nearby periodontist to help patients through the entire dental implant process. He also places traditional bridges and crowns. However, he does not create removable dentures because they so often fall short of a patient’s expectations.
If you are working on a restorative case that is particularly extensive or complex, Dr. Feit would be happy to consult with you. He’ll use his skills as a prosthodontist and cosmetic dentist in Boca Raton to help your patient experience the life-changing benefits of high-quality replacement teeth.
