Why see a Prosthodontist?
Although all dentists are trained to do crowns, bridges, and dentures, a Prosthodontist has completed 3 full years of supervised specialist postgraduate training and study at a dental school, within a university setting, to achieve a high level of expertise in the field.
This multidisciplinary training ensures that the Prosthodontic graduate develops a high level of knowledge of other dental specialties, enabling them to integrate patients’ treatment plans with other specialists to ensure the best possible care is provided.
Prosthodontists have special training and thus expertise in the areas of dental implants, crowns, bridges, full and partial dentures, major dental reconstruction, traumatic tooth injuries, TMJ, complete oral rehabilitation and complex care management involving multiple specialities.
For large or complex dental problems, a Prosthodontist is usually the best person to provide an overall treatment plan, coordinate between specialities, and complete your restorative treatments.
