What is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontics (also known as dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry) is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). Prosthodontists specialize in the diagnosis, restoration, and replacement of missing teeth. Prosthodontists can restore oral function through the placement of restorations or prostheses (dentures, crowns, implants, etc.).
Advanced deterioration of a patient’s teeth usually creates issues besides loss of tooth or tooth structure which can be addressed by our office. While we may serve as the “architect” of a dental treatment plan, we often collaborate with your general dentist and other specialists to facilitate the complete treatment of your condition.
Prosthodontics treatment can literally redesign your smile with a number of different services including:
- Dental implants
- Teeth whitening
- Bridges, and crowns

Why Choose a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are dental specialists in the cosmetic, restoration and replacement of teeth who have completed dental school plus three additional years of advanced and extensive training and education in an ADA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program. This is where prosthodontists are highly trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating multiple, diverse, and complex dental conditions. They will also learn how to restore the optimum function and aesthetics of a smile.
