What is a prosthodontist?

A beautiful smile is important to your health, hygiene, confidence, and self-esteem. At our office, we can help you have the most attractive, natural-looking smile possible thru advanced prosthodontic care.  Prosthodontics, or prosthetic dentistry, is a specialized area of dentistry that concentrates on aesthetic restorations, and the replacement of teeth to their proper form and function.

After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists complete an extra three years of specialized training through a hospital or university-based program accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA).  Prosthodontics is one of only 9 recognized specialties in dentistry.  There are many dentists who claim to be specialists in fields that are not recognized by the ADA, and therefore are not really specialists. Graduate programs in prosthodontics include classroom lectures, literature reviews, seminars, and laboratory and clinical training in all aspects of dental health and restoration.

A prosthodontist is an expert in restoring your smile using the best dental technology and products, including:

  • Aesthetic and cosmetic treatments
  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Complete and removable partials and dentures
  • Dental Implants
  • Veneers

Prosthodontists are masters of complete oral rehabilitation and can treat numerous dental conditions, such as:

  • TMD-jaw joint problems
  • Traumatic injuries to the mouth’s structures
  • Congenital or birth anomalies to teeth
  • Snoring and sleep disorders
  • Oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care

Prosthodontists are dedicated to the highest standards of care, technology, and service in the replacement of your teeth and restoration of your beautiful, healthy smile.
