Benefits of a Prosthodontist - Center for Prosthetic Dentistry
What is our specialty?
Whether you are a new patient or have been with us for a while, you may not completely understand what a prosthodontist is. We hope this information will help you realize the value of treatment by a dental specialist.
Prosthodontists are experts in the restoration and replacement of teeth - they make smiles look beautiful and function the way they should. Prosthodontics is both an art and a science.
Many like to think of Prosthodontists as the "quarterback" of a dental team. They regularly lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other health professionals to develop solutions to your dental needs and to help restore natural teeth and create natural looking substitutes or prosthetic teeth.
After completing four years of dental school, Prosthodontists receive an extra three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate program. Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA.
Less than 2% of all dentists are prosthodontists. At the Center for Prosthetic Dentistry, the dentists are members of the American College of Prosthodontists (A.C.P.).
Prosthodontists provide the highest level of dental care, creating generations of beautiful, healthy smiles.
"As Prosthodontists, we take great care and pride in providing our patients with esthetically attractive, healthy and natural-looking smiles, while providing the comfort and function that they really deserve."
