A Prosthodontist is one of the ten dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Prosthodontics is the dental specialty pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues using biocompatible substitutes. A Prosthodontist has completed dental school and an additional three years of advanced training through an ADA-accredited graduate program.
Why choose a Prosthodontist?
- A Prosthodontist is highly trained in cosmetics, dental implants, full mouth reconstruction, crowns, bridges, dentures, and more. Due to their advanced training and education, they are the experts in treating complex dental conditions, restoring patients to the most favorable esthetics and function. Prosthodontists are experts at complex problem solving and treatment planning, as well as the most state-of-the-art dental materials and technology.
- Think of the Prosthodontist as the “quarterback” of your treatment. Their job is to come up with the most ideal treatment outcome for your dental care, involve other dental specialists as indicated, and to coordinate all your dental treatment journey. The Prosthodontist also completes the definitive restorative care restorations to the highest degree.
