Why do I Need a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with replacing missing teeth and related mouth or jaw structures using artificial devices. A prosthodontist has an additional 3 years of specialized training in providing this comprehensive care to their patients. While there are general dentists and other specialists who have some training in placing dental implants, a prosthodontist considers the final result from the start, guaranteeing the placement of the implant to be optimal for the final restoration, whether that is a crown, bridge, or denture. They can complete the process from start to finish, but can also work with your general dentist or denturist, so that they are perfectly positioned to place a crown, bridge or denture on well placed and secure dental implants. From a single crown all the way to a complex, full mouth rehabilitation, choosing a prosthodontist for your treatment needs provides longevity and aesthetic results you desire. Let us work with you and your general dentist to meet your dental needs and dreams!
