What is a Prosthodontist?

A Prosthodontist is a dental specialist who is an expert in prosthetic dentistry, which includes, single crowns to complex bridges, complete and partial denture treatment, full mouth rehabilitation and implant prosthetics.  A Prosthodontist completes a multiple year specialized training in their specialty after completing the basic dental school training.  This expert training allows Prosthodontists to treat the most sophisticated and complete dental problems.

Rigorous training and experience provide prosthodontists with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth, and the creation of tooth replacement.  Many like to think of Prosthodontists as the “quarterback” of a dental treatment plan.They regularly lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other health professionals to develop solutions for your dental needs. 

Prosthodontists combine the hands of a dentist with the eyes of an artist to create natural looking restorations that greatly benefit you- the patient!
