WHAT IS A PROSTHODONTIST
A prosthodontist specializes in the field of dentistry that requires the skill and finesse to repair or replace broken or missing teeth. After the four years of dental school required to be certified by the ADA, prosthodontists undergo an additional three years of rigorous, specific training for this field.
Replacing missing teeth with fixtures that patients have the ability to remove themselves, such as dentures or partial dentures, is known as removable prosthodontics.
Fixed prosthodontics is the process of replacing broken or missing teeth with permanent fixtures, that cannot be removed. These fixtures include veneers, crowns, bridges and implants.
Depending on the health benefits to each individual, fixed or removable prosthodontics will be recommended.
