Prosthodontics, otherwise called dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry, is the zone of dentistry that centers around dental prostheses. It is one of 12 dental claims to fame perceived by the American Dental Association (ADA), Royal College of Surgeons of England, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland, Royal College of Surgeons of Glasgow, Royal College of Dentists of Canada, and Royal Australasian College of Dental Surgeons. The ADA characterizes it as "the dental claim to fame relating to the finding, treatment arranging, recovery and support of the oral capacity, solace, appearance and soundness of patients with clinical conditions related with absent or inadequate teeth or oral and maxillofacial tissues utilizing biocompatible substitutes."
