What, exactly, is a prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist is a general dentist who has completed an additional three years of training in an accredited American Dental Association graduate program, learning how to design, manufacture, and fit artificial replacements for teeth and other parts of the mouth.
Prosthodontists have the skills, experience, and understanding to treat patients with functional and esthetic concerns best addressed through the use of bridges, complete and partial removable dentures, crowns, veneers, and dental implants.
Why see a prosthodontist instead of a general dentist?
Dissatisfaction with the esthetics of one’s smile can diminish self-esteem and affect quality of life. Tooth loss and tooth pain can lead to more serious problems, including a compromised ability to eat. Prosthodontists are specially equipped to deal with these issues.
