Everyone knows by now that they should be seeing their dentist at least twice a year for a regular check up, but how do you know if you need to see a prosthodontist? Perhaps a better question to focus on first is, ‘what exactly is a prosthodontist?’ A prosthodontist is a dentist that specializes in treating damaged teeth and jaws, as well as replacing adult teeth that are missing with a number of different dental implant techniques. A prosthodontist also must go through three extra years of training past dental school in order to receive their full certification.
Because a prosthodontist is more specialized, most of their patients come to them as referrals from their general dentists. However, you don’t always have to rely on your dentist to refer you first. If you think you might need the more specialized opinion of a prosthodontist, tell your Livonia dentist and they can put you in touch with the best specialist they know. If you are suffering from any of the following issues you should consider prosthodontic treatment.
Thankfully, Bright Side Dental is capable of providing most prosthodontic treatments you could need right here in our Livonia dentist office. We can give patients implants to replace missing teeth, as well as the all-on-4 procedure as a permanent solution to replace removable dentures. If there is anything we can’t do in our Livonia dental office, our nearby Bloomfield Hills location can step up with our board certified prosthodontist.
If you would like to schedule a consultation to learn more about prosthodontics, or want to call to make an appointment, you can reach our dentist office in Livonia at (734) 591-4145.
