What is Prosthodontics?

What is a Prosthodontist?

A Prosthodontist is a recognised dental specialist that generally deals with the replacement of missing or damaged teeth. Seeking advice and treatment from a Prosthodontist will ensure that you or your loved ones are offered the best treatment plan. A prosthodontist can also help you learn more about the different treatment options available today and walk you through the pros and cons of each. By becoming well educated about the expertise that a prosthodontist can offer, you avoid the confusion and possibly achieve the best course of action for your dental problems.

Benefit from Exclusive Expertise:

The treatment plans or options available for severe cases of missing or broken teeth are complicated and restoration can only be performed by a Prosthodontist. General dentists are trained in school to handle simple bridge or denture procedures. They are not trained to handle the larger and more complicated situations. If they provide them, they learned to perform them on their own, not in a university training program.  It would be similar to a pilot trained in flying a single seat airplane flying a jumbo jet - the principals are the same, but it’s a whole different experience. Usually, a reputable general dentist will refer you and team up with a Prosthodontist so you obtain the best treatment possible. You will then return to the general dentist for the regular cleaning and restorative needs.
