Prosthodontists are experts in the restoration and replacement of teeth - they make smiles look beautiful and function the way they should.  After completing four years of dental school, Prosthodontists receive an extra three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate program.  Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA.

Prosthodontists are trained to manage the most complex dental restorations.  From patients requiring rehabilitation after a traumatic injury, to creating a beautiful smile for those born with genetic facial deficits.  Prosthodontists have the special skills needed to restore smiles to the very best they can be.

The Benefits of Going to a "Pro"

Some dentists perform reconstructive dental work after just a weekend course on a procedure.  That may be okay to some, but you should know Prosthodontists receive an extra three years of intense formal training beyond regular dental school.

If you are seeking cosmetic or reconstructive dental work, you should do research before making a decision in order to ensure proper care.  As an ADA recognized specialist, a Prosthodontist is qualified to offer service in state-of-the-art procedures and techniques, such as:

  • Dental Implants
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Complex care and management involving multiple specialists
  • Complete and removable partial dentures
  • Replacing lost teeth
  • Special needs of geriatric patients
  • TMD (TM) - Jaw joint problems
  • Traumatic injuries
  • Snoring and sleep disorders
  • Maxillofacial prosthetic procedures such as cancer reconstruction and care.

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.
