Chances are that you’ve heard the word “prosthodontist,” but you might not know what a prosthodontist actually is. That’s not too uncommon, since prosthodontists usually only see patients on a referral basis from their regular dentist. A prosthodontist is a specialized dentist who focuses only on replacing teeth and repairing damaged teeth and jaw structures, generally with prosthetics. To become a certified prosthodontist, a dentist must complete three additional years of advanced training in a prosthodontist graduate degree program. With this additional level of experience they are experts when it comes to dental treatments and will know the best method of treatment for whatever dental issue you may be facing.
So how do you know if you need to see a prosthodontist? Usually a dentist will refer you themselves if what you need is outside the scope of what they themselves can treat. However, you can also ask your Royal Oak dentist yourself about the possibility of prosthodontic treatment if you are experiencing any of the issues below.
If you are a patient at our Bright Side Dental office in Royal Oak then we can help you to receive the prosthodontic treatment you need to fix any of the issues above. It is important to be open with your dentist and inform them of any issues you may be experiencing so that they can recommend the correct course of action for your situation. Chances are that your issue can be fixed right here in our Royal Oak dentist office without you even having to find an outside prosthodontist. We are lucky to have very experienced dentists and prosthodontists to help our patients in any way they need.
If you think prosthodontic treatment is right for you, or you would like to schedule a consultation to find out, you can call our dentist office in Royal Oak at (248) 629-1830.
