Why See a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (Public Health Dentistry, Endodontics, Oral & Maxillofacial Pathology, Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (Oral Surgeon), Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics and Prosthodontics). Graduate programs in prosthodontics include classroom lectures and seminars, laboratory and clinical training in esthetics/cosmetics, crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, complete and removable partial dentures, dental implants, TMD-jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the mouth’s structures, congenital or birth anomalies to teeth, snoring, sleep disorders, and oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care. Prosthodontists are masters of complete oral rehabilitation. A prosthodontist is dedicated to the highest standards of care in the restoration and replacement of teeth.
A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in the esthetic restoration and replacement of teeth. Prosthodontists receive three years of additional training after dental school furthering the understanding of the physical and dynamic function of the mouth and dentition while enhancing the skills and ability to restore optimum appearance and function to one’s dentition. Additional training for prosthodontists is earned through a hospital- or university-based program accredited by the American Dental Association. The training includes reviews of the literature, lectures, treatment of patients and laboratory experience in fabricating restorations. A prosthodontist is the skilled architect who can restore optimum function and appearance to your mouth utilizing state of the art techniques and procedures.
The prosthodontist often will work in association with other dental specialists, becoming the director of treatment to achieve the planned and desired results of one’s dental reconstruction, allowing for the best outcome in any treatment situation.
