It is important to develop a level of trust and familiarity with your dentist. After all, this is the person or place that will be making sure your smile and teeth keep looking good. However, it is also important to understand when your everyday dentist might be "out of their league," and when they need to call in some help.
The Focus of a Prosthodontist
Prosthodontists are dentists experienced with any oral prosthetic that we may need to put in your mouth. This includes caps, bridges, crowns, fillings, or even dentures. However, there experience level is what truly separates them from average cosmetic dentists. Prosthodontist train for an additional three years, specializing in state of the art technology and practices revolving around how to fix and restore your teeth when they are at their worst.
A prosthodontist focuses on two different areas. The first area is as an advisory role, directing a team of cosmetic dentists or giving an expert opinion about any surgery or surgeries you may need to restore your teeth. This might be infrequent, especially if you have a dentist who has been in the practice for many years. The second area of focus for a prosthodontist deals with damaged teeth that require specific work to fix. Some examples of works that a prosthodontist might do is a full facial reconstruction, work on cleft palates, deviated septum, or joint issues. The focus and aim of the dentist, much like all dentists, is to maintain your confidence in your smile and teeth, while providing the very best services that they can.
