What is A Prosthodontist & Why Do You Need One?
Are you looking to reclaim that perfect smile? Dr. Erica DeFabio can make your dreams of a beautiful smile a reality.
A prosthodontist is an advanced practitioner of dentistry. Becoming a prosthodontist requires 3 years beyond dental school. In these 3 years, one is taught a deeper understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and the creation of tooth replacements. During this time of advanced education, they are trained in state of the art techniques and procedures with the latest technology. All this with the goal of being able to treat complex dental conditions and restoring optimum function and esthetics.
Prosthodontists are experts in treating the dental and facial problems that arise from missing teeth and jaw structures. Whether it is a single tooth or all of your teeth, a prosthodontist can help give you the perfect smile.
A prosthodontist is best described as the architect. Their specialty is in designing the best treatment strategy. They collaborate with general dentists and specialists to develop solutions to oral health concerns.
Some reasons you may go to a prosthodontist are if you have serious jaw issues, need multiple replacements, or just have a lot of oral problems. Dr. Erica DeFabio will go through your treatment options to fix your oral challenges and come up with the best plan for you to move forward.
