Prosthodontic Dental Care
We Have Extensive Training In Prosthodontic Treatment
Q. What is a prosthodontist?
A. A prosthodontist is a specialist in the replacement or restoration of teeth and jaw structures utilizing artificial materials. A prosthodontist must complete three to four additional years of training in a prosthodontics program accredited by the American Dental Association. This extensive training includes literature review, lectures, patient treatment and restoration fabrication in the laboratory.
Q. Why should I use a prosthodontist?
A. Known as experts in dental restoration and rehabilitation, prosthodontists have extensive training in many procedures including: dentures, removable partial dentures, crowns, bridges, caps, veneers, and dental implants. Prosthodontists also undergo training in placing dental implants surgically.
Q. How is a prosthodontist different from a cosmetic dentist?
A. While the American Dental Association recognizes nine dental specialties, it does not recognize “cosmetic dentistry” as a specialty. During their three- to four-year graduate programs, prosthodontists receive extensive training and experience in dental esthetics and cosmetics. Many cosmetic dentists receive training through weekend or weeklong seminars or a series of courses.
