WHAT IS A PROSTHODONTIST?
A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in the esthetic restoration and replacement of teeth. Prosthodontists receive two or three years of additional training after dental school, and restore optimum appearance and function to your smile.
A maxillofacial prosthodontist specializes in defects of the head and neck caused by trauma, surgery, or congenital abnormality. Prostheses are made of artificial materials as opposed to the patient’s own tissues. The prostheses may be cosmetic, serving to provide esthetics for the affected area, and other needs. This type of dental specialist has the experience and training for treating multiple, diverse, and complex dental conditions.
