What is a Prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in the replacement and restoration of broken and worn teeth.
Prosthodontists are dental experts who have received extra years of advanced postgraduate training. They replace and restore teeth through several procedures like dental crowns, implants, bridges, veneers, dentures or a combination of these treatment alternatives. They may also work on improving your smile by:
- Placing complete cosmetic ceramic crowns or "caps" onto teeth
- Placing veneers onto natural teeth to conceal defects like shape irregularities and tooth discoloration
- Using dental bonding technology on a tooth's surface to change its shape or to close unwanted gaps
Prosthodontists are trained to perform both simple and complicated restorations of the whole mouth as well as treating facial deformities.
Their rigorous training allows them to offer state-of-the-art procedures and techniques such as treatments of patients with oral traumatic injuries, children born with cleft palate or missing teeth, temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and maxillofacial prosthetic procedures such as oral cancer reconstruction. Prosthodontist also attend to the special dental needs of geriatric patients.
These dental experts understand the dynamics of your smile and the preservation of a healthy mouth.
