What Is a Prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist is a general dentist who has undergone two to three years of additional training beyond dental school in the reconstruction of teeth. The American Dental Association (ADA) recognizes prosthodontics as one of 9 specialties in dental care. Every prosthodontist is also a dentist, but not every dentist is also a prosthodontist. In fact, there are only about 3,500 practicing prosthodontists in the US, according to the ADA. Dr. Binns is one of the few!
When to Visit a Prosthodontist
A prosthodontist like Dr. Binns at our office specializes in reconstructing the form and function of smiles that have been affected by missing teeth or tooth loss. Teeth may be missing at birth due to a congenital disease, or injury could have caused some to be lost. Poor oral hygiene may also cause tooth loss in older age. Whatever the reason for tooth loss, a prosthodontist is prepared with state-of-the-art tools and the most advanced treatments for completing smiles and getting oral health back on track after tooth loss.
You may want to consider visiting a prosthodontist if you need one of the following treatments:
- Cosmetic dentistry or reconstruction
- Dental implants for missing teeth
- Dental crowns or bridges
- Full or partial dentures
- Treatment of TMJ/TMD, or temporomandibular joint dysfunction
- Solutions for facial trauma
