Did you know that some dentists perform reconstructive dentistry after just a weekend course on a procedure? That may be okay, but you should know prosthodontists receive an extra two to three years of intense, formal training after dental school. Formal postdoctoral training programs are only available in dental schools which are accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA).
If you are seeking reconstructive dentistry, you should do research before making a decision in order to ensure proper care. As ADA recognized specialists, prosthodontists are qualified to offer care in state-of-the-art procedures and techniques, such as:
Complete and removable partial dentures
Replacing lost teeth
Temporomandibular joint syndrome/disorder
Snoring and sleep disorders
Rigorous training and experience provide prosthodontists with a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile, the preservation of a healthy mouth, and the creation of tooth replacements. Any BOARD CERTIFIED PROSTHODONTIST will list that they are a Fellow of the American College of Prosthodontists. You can check the board certification of any prosthodontist here.
