Difference Between A Prosthodontist and Dentist

Posted on 5/10/2021 by Dr. David Wanserski
Difference Between A Prosthodontist and DentistYou've probably never visited a prosthodontist in your life if you haven't lost a tooth or required a crown. However, your general dentist may refer you to a prosthodontist if you have missing or damaged teeth. Most people don't know the difference between a prosthodontist and a dentist, which we will change here.
Prosthodontics helps preserve oral health and restore smiles through replacing or repairing damaged, decayed, or worn teeth. At Wanserski Dental Center for Complex Dentistry, we want you to feel confident and comfortable in our prosthodontic care from your first appointment.

What Is Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a specialist dental field that involves removable and fixed dental restorations designed to restore your smile's function and look. Our prosthodontic treatments will address the cosmetic or functional issues you are facing with your teeth. Prosthodontics is also ideal for dealing with jaw problems and restoring the gums and teeth' natural function and appearance.

What Is a Prosthodontist?

Dentists who are specially trained and specialize in replacing and restoring teeth are known as prosthodontists. They learn complicated dental treatment planning, cutting-edge dental laboratory technology, and how to perform dental surgeries. Due to their experience and extensive training, prosthodontists know how to create quality teeth replacements, how a smile works, and what keeps a mouth healthy.

What Makes a Prosthodontist Different Than a Dentist?

A general dentist knows how to perform routine dental care and minor dental procedures like root canals and dental fillings. Even though general dentists receive specialist training, prosthodontists are dental specialists who have undergone extra training. If you require oral surgery or want a tooth replaced, consulting with a prosthodontist is recommended to get the highest-quality treatment that meets your needs and helps you achieve a beautiful smile.
