WHAT IS PROSTHODONTICS AND WHAT IS A PROSTHODONTIST?
Prosthodontics is an advanced, highly skilled dental specialty that focuses on the restoration or replacement of teeth. It is the only dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association devoted to restoring or replacing teeth.
A Prosthodontist is dedicated to providing the highest level of care for patients who need to replace missing teeth due to damage to their existing teeth. Prosthodontics offers you more skilled, more customized, more expert and exceptional dental care.
After completing four years of dental school, Prosthodontists undergo three additional years of specialized training in an American Dental Association accredited, university or hospital-based post-graduate education program.
