Additional Training in Prosthodontics
A prosthodontist doesn’t just attend a weekend seminar to learn how to perform a new procedure, then arrive at the office on Monday ready to go. Prosthodontics is such a wide-ranging specialty that an additional three years of education after dental school is required. However, once considered a specialist in prosthodontics, these specialized dentists can do everything from bridges and implants to diagnosing TMJ or obstructive sleep apnea.
Whether your smile is not what you’d like it to be because of trauma or genetics, you can fix your smile with a dentist who specializes in prosthodontics. A prosthodontist can lay out a plan of treatment that will show you what will be done and in what order by your team, so you end up with the smile of your dreams.
Whether you need a full mouth restoration or you just need implants to replace a few teeth, through prosthodontics you will be able to get all the services you need through a complex series of treatments. All of these can be performed in one place with this specialty. Because of this, many general dentists will refer their patients needing complex care to a prosthodontist.
