The average person probably doesn’t spend too much time thinking about dentistry, which means prosthodontics probably never even crosses their mind. However, this doesn’t mean that it can’t be very important to correcting the health and appearance of your teeth. A prosthodontist is just a dentist that has chosen to specialize in replacing missing teeth and otherwise restructuring the mouth and jaw, whether for cosmetic or functional purposes. The procedures they perform are more specialized than what a general dentist usually does, so when they do see patients it’s usually as a referral from that patient’s regular dentist. A prosthodontist also must take three extra years of training before they receive their certification.
Although a patient’s dentist usually refers them first, you shouldn’t wait for your dentist to say something if you think you have an issue that requires prosthodontic intervention. There are many different reasons that one might have to see a prosthodontist. Below are a few examples. If you are suffering from any of the following issues, you should consider making an appointment with a prosthodontist or at least bringing it up with your dentist.
Luckily, if you are a patient at our dentist office in Sterling Heights we can provide you with nearly any prosthodontic treatment you will need to fix your issues. We can provide dental implant surgery to replace missing teeth and more, all right here in our Sterling Heights dentist office. Any procedure that can’t be done here can be done a short distance away at our Bloomfield Hills location where we have a board certified prosthodontist on staff.
If you would like to schedule a dentist appointment or a prosthodontist appointment, you can do so by calling our Sterling Heights dental office at (586) 247-0010.
