When your smile has been broken, damaged, or infected, you may need a prosthodontist to fully restore your smile to its original health and functionality. A prosthodontist is a dentist who has undergone special training in the aesthetic restoration and replacement of teeth. Prosthodontists undergo an additional three years of training following the initial four years of dental school.
The schooling of a prosthodontist can take place in either a university or hospital, and consists of several courses of classroom lectures, seminars, literary reviews, and clinical training. Prosthodontists need this training to help them know how to deliver the best care to each individual who enters their offices.
