What is a prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a dentist who has completed dental school plus at least three additional years of advanced training and education. We specialize in treating and handling dental and facial problems that involve restoring missing teeth and jaw structures. A prosthodontist is highly trained in cosmetics, dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, function and so much more.

Why should I see a prosthodontist?

Prosthodontists are THE recognized experts when anything needs to be replaced in your mouth. Prosthodontists are extensively trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating complex dental conditions and restoring optimum function and esthetics. This can range from a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth and gums in the mouth. While many other dentists can do some of these treatments, prosthodontists are the specialists dedicated to this type of care.

Why see a prosthodontist for dental implants?

Placement of implants without careful diagnosis and treatment planning should be avoided. The more complex and extensive the care, the more important it is to obtain a satisfactory outcome for the patient. Implants placed without proper planning can result in an implant being placed with improper position, orientation, or without adequate space for the restoration. This can result in compromise of function, durability, esthetics or any combination of these problems. As prosthodontists are the experts for treating and handling dental and facial problems that involve restoring missing tooth and jaw structure, it makes us uniquely qualified to place dental implants.
