Why do I need a Prosthodontist?
Specialists in Tooth Repair and Replacement
Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. This particular specialty focuses on the repair of damaged teeth as well as the replacement of missing teeth. The goals of treatment are to restore both the health of your mouth as well as restore, or even enhance, the aesthetics of your smile.
Prosthodontists Vs. General Dentists
All dentists, including general dentists, receive four years of education and training. After those four years, prosthodontists, as well as specialists, go on to attend an additional 2 to 3 years of formal education and hands-on training in our specific field. In addition to classrooms, we attend lectures and seminars and work hands-on with real dental patients. We become well acquainted with the treatments for restoring damaged teeth, the procedures for extracting teeth, and how to effectively replace missing teeth. We learn all about, and use, the latest prosthodontic tools, technologies, and techniques, which then allow us to provide you with the high-quality treatment you need. While general dentists receive some training in certain types of dental restorations, we are experts in all restorative techniques and procedures.
