While all prosthodontists are dentists, not all dentists are prosthodontists. Prosthodontists are dental specialists with advanced training in the art and science of tooth replacement and restoration. Specifically, prosthodontists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with missing teeth and complex dental needs. Prosthodontists must complete a minimum of three additional years of advanced training in a CODA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program after dental school to be considered members of the specialty.
A prosthodontist specializes in the design, fabrication, and placement of restorations to repair or replace missing or damaged teeth. If you are in need of cosmetic dentistry, dental crowns, full reconstruction, bridges, dentures, dental implants or TMJ treatment, a prosthodontist has more knowledge and experience in these subjects to provide you with the best treatment.
Boston Prosthodontics Dental Group has three Board-Certified prosthodontists on its world-renowned team of dentists. To achieve Board-Certification, our dentists passed a rigorous in-depth exam by the American Board of Prosthodontists. They must then achieve re-certification every eight years, ensuring they are always up to date with the latest practices and technology in their specialty.
Whether you are looking for a cosmetic dentist or family dentist, we strive to exceed our patients’ expectations. Our team of doctors is made up of leaders in dental education, internationally renowned lecturers, and developers of cutting-edge research.
Prosthodontists are recognized as the experts in restorative dental treatments. They are regularly selected to lead teams of dentists and other health professionals to effectively deal with complex dental problems.
Our prosthodontists work closely with general dentists and other specialists throughout the region. They also collaborate directly with master craftsmen at our in-house lab to create unbelievably lifelike restorations for implants, such as dentures.
The prosthodontists at Boston Prosthodontics Dental Group in Boston, MA, undergo many years of highly focused prosthodontic training far beyond a typical dentist’s course of study. A prosthodontist’s curriculum includes advanced-level courses as well as clinical and laboratory experience, patient care, and research. This robust coursework makes them highly trained in state-of-the-art techniques for treating difficult dental conditions.
While our prosthodontists treat many of the same oral health concerns as general dentists, their in-depth training allows them to treat a broader variety of issues themselves instead of sending patients to practices throughout the Boston, MA, region. Our dental office also includes a board-certified periodontist, giving patients convenient access to a broad range of highly specialized services.
