What Is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are dental specialists in the restoration and replacement of teeth. After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate education program. Prosthodontics is one of the eight dental specialties recognized by the ADA.
Rigorous training and experience provide prosthodontists with the special understanding of the dynamics of the smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth, and the creation of tooth replacements.
Serving as the “architect” of a dental treatment plan, prosthodontists collaborate with general dentists, specialists and other health professionals to develop solutions to your dental concerns.
Protecting Your Teeth
Years of eating, chewing, and for many nightly “grinding” can affect your teeth in many ways. For example, excessive wear on teeth with large fillings or root canals can lead to portions of teeth breaking off. To preserve the remaining tooth and prevent breakage, a prosthodontist may recommend various types of crowns or “caps” to restore the tooth. Prosthodontists are experts in managing the increased complexity of multiple tooth treatments, as well as providing “state of the art” solutions to protect and restore natural-looking smiles.
Prosthodontists Can Help in Many Ways
As dental experts in state-of-the-art procedures and techniques, Dr. Hong is able to treat many different, diverse dental conditions such as:
- Complex care management involving multiple specialists
- Post oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care
- Children born with missing teeth
- TMD – jaw joint problems
- Traumatic injuries
- Snoring and sleep disorders
Integrating natural-looking replacement materials with the patient’s original facial structure into a comfortable and pleasing appearance is our goal.
