A prosthodontist is a specialist in the field of dentistry. Much like an orthodontist or endodontist, a prosthodontist has received additional training beyond the requirements of a general dentist. Prosthodontists are considered specialists in restorative procedures, such as those that improve imperfect teeth as well as treatments that involve replacing missing teeth. A prosthodontist is prepared to meet every conceivable challenge that a patient may bring in this area of dentistry. Prosthodontists have a high level of expertise in both functional improvement and aesthetic enhancement of the teeth.
How Does a Prosthodontist Differ from a General Dentist?
As previously mentioned, prosthodontists undergo years of additional training through a university or hospital-based program that is accredited by the ADA (American Dental Association). This extensive and specialized education includes advanced-level courses, clinical and laboratory experience, patient care experience and rigorous research. A prosthodontist’s training borders other medical disciplines, which often gives them an expansive range of diagnostic insight and diversified approaches to oral health concerns.
Who Can Benefit from a Prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist focuses on providing valued solutions for patients with imperfect teeth or missing teeth, whether due to a birth abnormality, accidental trauma or severe decay. You may benefit from the expertise of a certified prosthodontist if you:
- Want to improve the appearance of your smile with cosmetic dentistry services
- Need teeth replacement in the form of crowns, bridges or dental implants
- Require a full mouth reconstruction
- Desire a more customized solution that will accommodate the unique needs of your smile and bite, allowing you to speak and chew comfortably as well as smile confidently
