What Is A Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a dentist who has completed an additional three or four year American Dental Association accredited residency program after dental school.  It includes lectures and seminars, and intensive laboratory and clinical experience.

Prosthodontists are experts in diagnosis, treatment planning and restorative procedures.  They restore oral function and improve the esthetic appearance of smiles through:
  • replacement of broken, worn, or decayed teeth with crowns, veneers or inlays
  • placement of dental implants and implant crowns and prostheses
  • replacement of missing teeth with bridges
  • fabricating removable partial or complete dentures
  • restoration of occlusion
  • management of TMJ disorders and bruxism
