Prosthodontics is a recognized dental specialty pertaining to the diagnosis, treatment planning, rehabilitation, and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance, and health of patients with clinical conditions associated with missing or deficient teeth and/or oral and maxillofacial tissues. A prosthodontist is a dentist who has completed dental school plus at least three additional years of advanced training and education in an CODA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program.
Essentially, prosthodontists are the recognized experts when anything needs to be replaced in your mouth. This can range from a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth and gums in the mouth. While many other dentists can do some of these treatments, prosthodontists are the specialists dedicated to this type of care. They regularly lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other health professionals to develop solutions for your dental needs.
Located in the Providence Station development, Restoration Dentistry was created with the patient in mind. It was intentionally designed for expansion with six treatment rooms and an in-house laboratory while providing comforts that we believe patients deserve. In addition to a welcoming and inviting atmosphere, you will find advanced technology like a cone-beam CT x-ray machine and 3Shape Trios digital impression system to name a few.
In the ever-changing dental environment, we know one thing to be true: evidenced-based dentistry should be at the forefront of all that we do. Advancements in technology help us achieve better and more reliable treatment outcomes when applied correctly. Because of this, we have added digital impressions, digital implant planning, digital x-rays (including 3D CT scanning), digital photography, digital smile design, and 3D printing to our practice.
