Patients who have lost their teeth or whose teeth have become damaged can greatly benefit from the care of a prosthodontist.
Prosthodontists can sometimes reverse congenital defects and the long-term effects of oral neglect and trauma.
Prosthodontists are capable of performing a wide variety of complex procedures, including:
• Partial dentures (complete and removable)
• Reconstruction following oral cancer surgery
• Correcting snoring or sleep disorders such as sleep apnea
• Jaw and jaw joint problems
• Treating traumatic injuries to the mouth
After completing dental school, a prosthodontist typically undergoes three additional years of advanced training and education in a prosthodontic education program accredited by the American Dental Association.
