What is a Prosthodontist?
A specialist prosthodontist is a dentist who has specialised in restoring the mouth and improving the smile. They have spent at least an additional three studying, having finished their general dental degree. They use crowns, bridges, implants, partial and complete dentures to restore the mouth.
They are specifically trained to plan and restore the mouth whether you are missing a single tooth, or you have multiple failing teeth. A specialist prosthodontist is able to provide you with all the options available to restore your situation.
