Prosthodontist is a dentist who has years of advanced training to provide simple as well as complex dental care. Less than 2% of the dentists are prosthodontist trained, as it is a highly specialized field. Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA (American Dental Association).
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 replacements. Serving as the "architect" of a dental treatment plan, prosthodontists collaborate with other specialists and health professionals to develop solutions to your dental concerns.
A Prosthodontist will usually treat the more difficult dental problems such as people who are missing many teeth or have significant functional or aesthetic problems and TMD/TMJ issues. Prosthodontist shines as the individual who is really trained to make significant improvements in your appearance and your smile keeping in mind the functional aspects of dental reconstruction.
