Q: What is a Prosthodontist?
A: A prosthodontist is a dental specialist in the restoration and replacement of teeth who has completed dental school, plus three additional years of advanced training and education in an ADA accredited prosthodontics graduate program. Prosthodontists provide an extremely high level of care to patients with missing teeth or those who have significant damage to their existing teeth. Prosthodontists are trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating many diverse and complex dental conditions and restoring optimum function and esthetics. These include: crowns, bridges, veneers, complete and removable partial dentures, dental implant prosthetics, TMD, jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the mouth’s structure and teeth, snoring, and continuing care of general dentistry as well.
