A prosthodontist specializes in various types of procedures that restore the mouth and its structures to their original form and function. If you have lost one or more teeth to an injury or gum disease, a prosthodontist is the type of dental professional you will turn to help correct the problems you may be experiencing. A prosthodontist undergoes extensive training beyond dental school to be able to perform these delicate procedures and help restore your smile
Restorative dentistry includes a wide range of procedures and techniques that can improve or restore your smile. They include:
- Dental implants
- Crowns and caps
- Teeth whitening procedures
They can also perform complex surgical procedures that involve the correction of abnormalities and birth defects, such as cleft palates and abnormal jaw formations.
When Should You Call A Prosthodontist?
