Prosthodontics

Prosthodontists are dental specialists in the restoration and replacement of teeth who have completed dental school plus three or more additional years of advanced training and education in an ADA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program.

What Are Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is an area of dental specialty focused on the restoration and replacement of teeth.  A specialist in this area is called a prosthodontist.  Prosthodontists go through additional training after general dentistry school in order to provide the highest level of care to patients with missing or significantly damaged teeth.

 

These include: crowns, bridges, complete and removable partial dentures, dental implants, TMD-jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the mouth’s structure and/or teeth, snoring or sleep disorders, and oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care.

What Kind of Patients Require A Prosthodontist?

Patients who have missing or significantly damaged teeth may benefit from the services of a prosthodontist.  For some patients, these conditions are the result of congenital defects, while for others they are the result of trauma or neglect.  Penn Dental Prosthodontists are skilled in addressing conditions that arise from all such situations.

What Are Their Core Services?

Prosthodontists focus on replacing or restoring missing or broken teeth.  Their restorative services include: bridges, crowns, dentures, dental implants, oral cancer reconstruction, and facial prosthetics.
