Concord, CA Prosthodontics
Why a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are qualified Dentists who have then undergone a minimum of a further three years of full-time training and practice in all areas of dentistry. This additional in-depth training means they have a wide and detailed knowledge of a range of dental techniques and a comprehensive view of the teeth as a part of the human body. Less than 2% of all Dentists are Prosthodontists.
By undertaking the additional training, Prosthodontists are trained to diagnose and treat underlying problems as part of an overall treatment program. These include: dental crowns, bridges, teeth veneers, inlays, complete and removable partial dentures, dental implants, TMD-jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the mouths structures and/or teeth, snoring and sleep disorders and oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care.
Prosthodontists often work very closely with other dental specialists as well as dental laboratory technicians to help restore natural teeth and create natural looking substitutes or prosthetic teeth. Rigorous training and experience provide Prosthodontists with the special understanding of the dynamics of the smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth and the creation of tooth replacements.
Prosthodontists have the additional skills required to restore optimum function and esthetics to your smile. Prosthodontists can provide an extremely high level of care to patients with missing teeth or having significant damage to their existing teeth.
