Why are prosthodontists considered the experts when dealing with tooth replacement?
A prosthodontist will have continued their education for an additional three years in the field of dental prosthesis (cosmetic restoration and teeth replacement). It’s similar to how a medical doctor continues training to become a prosthetist, but instead of limbs and appendages, a prosthodontist works with teeth and facial bones.
When should I see a Prosthodontist?
In general, anyone who is self-conscious of their smile should call 24th Street Dental Biltmore and request a consultation with one of our cosmetic dentist professionals. We can help construct a treatment plan depending on the issue.
- Loose or missing teeth due to an accident
- Weakened teeth due to genetics or medications
- Lifestyle choices (diet, smoking, drinking, etc.)
Sometimes a visit to the prosthodontist is fairly simple, as in removable dentures. Other times a more complicated surgery is scheduled, such as jawbone and facial reconstruction.
