What is a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontists combine the hands of a dentist with the eyes of an artist to create natural looking restorations that greatly benefit their patients.

prostho01Prosthodontists are specialists in esthetic, reconstructive and implant dentistry, which includes simple and everyday procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, crowns, dentures and implant restorations to more complex procedures such as facial reconstruction for trauma patients. We are the only specialists approved by the American Dental Association with three additional years of extensive training, taking the “whole mouth approach” to ensure that our patients receive the best treatment for them.

A prosthodontist’s intensive training beyond the standard norms of the dental degree interfaces them with researchers and clinical experts from numerous other medical disciplines, tending to give them a wide range of diagnostic insight and diversified approaches to oral health solutions.

Imperfect teeth, whether by birth abnormality, traumatic accident or natural decay, can be replaced with attractive, functional teeth in the office of a prosthodontist.

Prosthodontists are board certified. This means that in addition to completing the program requirements to be held out as specialists in their field, they have also passed a written and clinical examination assessing their requisite knowledge and skill to provide high quality patient care.
