What is a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontists are dental specialists who have undergone additional training and certification in the restoration and replacement of broken teeth with crowns, bridges, removable prosthetics (dentures and partial dentures), and dental implants.

This specialty is the branch of dentistry that also specializes in understanding the dynamics of the smile, preserving a healthy mouth and creating tooth replacements.

Prosthodontists often work closely with other members of the oral healthcare team in restoring natural teeth, replacing missing teeth, and/or developing artificial substitutes for damaged oral and maxillofacial (jaws and face) tissues.
