You don’t have to know what a prosthodontist is in order to benefit from their services, but in case you were wondering how they differ from a regular dentist, a prosthodontist is more specialized and focuses mainly on the repair of damaged teeth and jaws as well as the replacement of teeth that are missing. A prosthodontist also must complete three more years of training than a regular dentist to become fully certified in their specialty.
The reasons to see a prosthodontist can range from cosmetic, to improve one’s appearance, to functional, to improve the actual use of one’s teeth. You may be wondering why prosthodontics is not as well known as general dentistry. It’s because prosthodontists usually only see patients on a referral basis rather than from advertising because they are so specialized. However, you don’t always have to be referred first. If you believe you need to see a prosthodontist for any reason, bring up the issue with your Warren dentist and they can recommend the best course of action for you take. If you are going through any of the issues below, you should schedule a dentist appointment and talk to your dentist about it.
