Why See a Prosthodontist?

Why See a Prosthodontist?

Missing teeth have an impact beyond the aesthetics of your smile. They can affect your ability to chew and eat properly, which can decrease your quality of life and overall health. If you have missing teeth, a prosthodontist is the most qualified specialist to restore your smile. Here are a few reasons why you should consult a prosthodontist over a general or cosmetic dentist for full-mouth dental implant reconstruction.

What does a prosthodontist do?

Prosthodontists are experts in their field.

A prosthodontist is a highly-qualified specialist in tooth restoration and tooth replacement. Prosthodontists receive a minimum of three years of training after dental school, but many, like Dr. Nation, continue their training well past this requirement. This specialized training must be completed at a prosthodontics education program that is accredited by the American Dental Association. 

Prosthodontists use state-of-the-art techniques and technology. 

Prosthodontists rely on the most sophisticated techniques and procedures for treating complex dental conditions. With advanced technology, prosthodontists can achieve better results.

Prosthodontists have experience with the most complex dental cases.

Prosthodontists like Dr. Nation are equipped to resolve even the most complex dental cases, particularly those that require full-mouth reconstruction as a result of severe gum disease, traumatic injury or illness.
