Prosthodontics is the dental specialty responsible for the diagnosis, treatment
planning, rehabilitation and maintenance of patients with complex clinical
conditions using biocompatible substitutes, including implants, to replace missing
or deficient teeth and/or craniofacial tissues. Prosthodontics is one of the nine
dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA).
|WHAT IS A PROSTHODONTIST ?
Prosthodontists are dental specialists in the restoration and replacement of teeth.
After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive three
additional years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA)
accredited graduate education program. Rigorous training provide
prosthodontists with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the
preservation of a healthy mouth and the creation of tooth replacements. Serving
as the "architect" of a dental treatment plan, prosthodontists collaborate with
general dentists, specialists and other health care professionals to develop
solutions to your dental concerns.
