What is a Prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating complex dental and facial matters, including the restoration and replacement of missing or damaged teeth with artificial devices. They are highly trained in dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, jaw disorders, and more.
Why see a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are dental specialists, and they have received additional training in the diagnosis, restoration, and replacement of missing teeth. The deterioration or damage to your teeth often creates problems beyond the loss of your tooth or tooth structure. Prosthodontists act as the “architects” of your dental treatment plan, and they frequently collaborate with your general dentist and other dental specialists to ensure that you receive the best, most effective treatment possible.
