Prosthodontics (also known as dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry) is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA).

Prosthodontists specialize in the diagnosis, restoration, and replacement of missing teeth.

Prosthodontics dentistry is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on restoring or replacing injured, damaged or missing teeth to maintain dental health, function and aesthetics.

What Exactly Is
Prosthodontics Dentistry?

Prosthodontists handle complex dental cases, including jaw surgery, dentures, implants, and more. Prosthodontists also offer veneers, crowns, and bridges to restore and replace teeth.

Complete or partial removal of teeth may be necessary when they have sustained significant damage, which may have been caused by:

  • Injury
  • Disease
  • Congenital defects
  • Jaw and sleep disorders
  • Neglect
  • Day-to-day wear

Prosthodontics restore, with the goal being to make them look as natural as possible, stained, chipped, worn, broken or missing teeth. The following prosthetic devices may be used to replace or restore teeth: 

  • Crowns
  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Inlays
  • Dental implants
  • Dentures

What is the Difference Between a Prosthodontist and a Dentist?

The most significant difference between a general dentist and a prosthodontist is that a prosthodontist specializes in replacing and repairing teeth (via implants, crowns, etc.) and restoring your oral health and function throughout your entire mouth. Conversely, general dentists concentrate on routine dental care, which may also involve other types of repairs (fillings, gum care, root canals, etc.).

If you require implant, cosmetic or advanced tooth replacement, it’s best to seek the advice and services of a prosthodontics who will ensure that you get efficient, top-quality treatment that matches your exact needs and produces beautiful, long-term solutions for your smile
