I get the question, “What is a Prosthodontist?” quite often. A Prosthodontist is a dentist that specializes in how to best maintain teeth or replace teeth to have the best function and cosmetics for the patient. To become a Prosthodontist takes three years of formal advanced dental training after the completion of dental school. Prosthodontists learn how to fix complicated bites, fit difficult dentures to look and feel as natural as possible, and know how to work with dental implants. Prosthodontists are the “Pros” of fixing teeth! Extensive training and experience provide Prosthodontists a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth, and the creation of tooth replacements with state-of-the-art techniques and procedures.
