Prosthodontist vs. Regular Dentist

A Prosthodontist is differentiated from a regular dentist by an additional two to three years of training. Their duties include the creation, restoration, and replacement of human teeth with a variety of different procedures and applications. A Prosthodontist makes the examination of your teeth, jaw, gums and suggests the type of prosthesis treatment that is right for your particular case. This includes crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, complete and removable partial dentures, dental implants, TMJ jaw problems, and traumatic injury reconstructive cases.
