Prosthodontics is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Prosthodontists are experts in the restoration and replacement of teeth and jaw structures and have expertise in cosmetics, dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures. In addition to four years of dental school, Prosthodontists complete an extra three years of special training in an ADA-accredited graduate program. Following this advanced training, a prosthodontist must pass a rigorous group of examinations in order to be Board Certified.
Serving as the "architect" of a dental treatment plan, Prosthodontists lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other healthcare professionals to develop effective solutions for your dental needs. When a patient is missing one or more teeth, both the function and appearance of the mouth are compromised. It is difficult to speak and eat, and self-confidence suffers. A prosthodontist can plan treatment and rehabilitation of the oral function using dental crowns, bridges, a partial dental prosthesis or various types of dentures.
