Why See a Prosthodontist?
What Are Prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics (also known as dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry) is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). Extensive training and experience give prosthodontists a unique understanding of restoring the dynamics of a smile and healthy mouth with the creation of tooth prostheses. Becoming a prosthodontist requires an additional three years of specialty training after obtaining a DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) or DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree.
What Kind of Education and Training Does a Prosthodontist Undergo?
This specialized training must be completed at an ADA-accredited prosthodontic education program. This is where prosthodontists are highly trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating multiple, diverse, and complex dental conditions.
Prosthodontists specialize in the areas of diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation, and maintenance of patients with dental conditions such as missing teeth, excessively worn or broken-down teeth, dentures, implants, and aesthetically displeasing smile. Plus, another area of training for Prosthodontists, that is vitally important for proper fitting, is the mechanics of chewing food properly and how to fit all cosmetic procedures into a good bite, restoring the optimum function and aesthetics of a smile. This is especially important for those who have or will need dentures.
