Prosthodontists, like orthodontists and periodontists, are specialists trained in a specific field of dentistry and have taken extended courses of training generally culminating in master’s degrees.
More adults are keeping their natural teeth as they age, and many of these will find that the field of prosthodontics is there to help them replace either single or multiple teeth in a direct and longterm manner.
While prosthodontics such as implants are expensive to install, over the long term they can bring years of satisfaction and promote self-confidence. If individuals are scrupulous with home care, eating habits and dental checkups, prosthodontic appliances can offer lasting solutions for impaired tooth function and appearance.
