Why Should You See A Prosthodontist?A prosthodontist has completed dental school like a general dentist but also completed three additional years of advanced education and training in a prosthodontic graduate program. They specialize in handling and treating facial and dental problems involving jaw structures and restoring missing teeth. Prosthodontists are highly trained in bridges, dental implants, crowns, cosmetics, dentures, and more.

Difference Between A Prosthodontists and Other Dental Specialists

“Prostho” means replacement. “Dontist” means dealing with teeth. When anything needs replaced in your mouth, prosthodontists are the experts and dedicated to this type of dental care. The dental specialty, prosthodontics pertains to the maintenance, rehabilitation, treatment planning, and diagnosis of the oral health, comfort, appearance, and function of patients suffering from missing or damaged teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues. Prosthodontists are the leaders of dental treatment plans, and they lead teams of specialists, general dentists, and other health professionals to develop solutions for all patients' dental needs.

Prosthodontists are trained in state-of-the-art procedures and techniques for restoring optimum function and esthetics while treating complex dental conditions. Prosthodontists have a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile and know everything about preserving a healthy mouth. They have been through rigorous training and experience to take care of your dental and prosthetic needs.

There are several reasons why you might visit a prosthodontist such as an accident involving your mouth, a birth-related condition, or for cosmetic reasons. Prosthodontists specialize in several services such as denture implant fit and placement, jaw, snoring, or sleep issues, traumatic injury repairs, oral cancer reconstruction and more.

What To Expect At Your Appointment

When you visit your prosthodontist, expect your appointment to be different from your routine dental appointments that you usually go to. Be prepared to discuss with them your dental history and anything that has affected the condition of your teeth currently. They will preform a thorough examination and listen to your concerns. If you need a more serious procedure performed such as dentures or dental implants, you should expect several additional appointments in the process.
