What is Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is one of nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Associates. This field provides prosthetics-based treatments that rehabilitate smiles and maintain their function, comfort, and appearance. Prosthodontic services solve clinical conditions associated with missing, decayed, or structurally impaired teeth, as well as oral and maxillofacial tissues.

Becoming a Prosthodontist

After earning their bachelor’s degree, prosthodontists commit to an extra three years of extensive training that focuses on restorative dentistry. During their training, they specialize in treatments such as dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, occlusion, and developmental defects in some instances.

With branches in prosthodontics, these dental professionals can pursue sub-specialties such as maxillofacial prosthetics that focus on treatments for head and neck issues caused by cancer, surgery, or trauma. These specialists are also available to provide treatment solutions for sleep apnea and temporomandibular joint disorders.

As experts in the field of aesthetics, prosthodontists collaborate with your dental team, which may include other specialists, general dentists, and lab technicians, to meet all of your needs at once. Custom treatment plans are created with alternative options recommended so that every aspect of your diagnosis is treated.

Prosthodontists combine their love of creating perfect restorations with the latest dental techniques to restore the look and function of your smile. From digital imaging and computer-aided image capture to the design and creation of restorations such as crowns and bridges, prosthodontists have dedicated their career to the field of aesthetic reconstructive dentistry.
