A Prosthodontist is a dentist who Specializes in the esthetic restoration and replacement of teeth and receives three years of additional training after dental school.
PROSTHODONTICS is the ADA-Recognized Dental Specialty in Aesthetic Oral Rehabilitation.
The Prosthodontist restores optimum appearance and function to your smile.
Additional training for a Prosthodontist is earned through a hospital or university-based program that is accredited by the American Dental Association. The training includes reviews of the literature, lectures, treatment of patients and laboratory experience in fabricating restorations.
Because of this additional training, the Prosthodontist is the skilled architect who can restore optimum function and appearance to your smile.
Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Graduate programs in Prosthodontics include classroom lectures and seminars, laboratory and clinical training in esthetics/cosmetics, crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, complete and removable partial dentures, dental implants, TMD-jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to oral structures, congenital or birth anomalies to teeth, snoring, sleep disorders, and oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care.
Because of this focus on training, Prosthodontists are masters of complete oral rehabilitation.
Above all, a Prosthodontist is dedicated to the highest standards of care in the restoration and replacement of teeth.
