While general dentists handle routine care, prosthodontists are dentists with advanced training in tooth replacement and restoration.
Prosthodontics is a dental specialty pertaining to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with missing or damaged teeth. Prosthodontists are experts at creating prosthetics for teeth.
And unlike dentists, prosthodontists receive years of advanced, hands-on training in dental implants and other restorative oral treatments.
Boston Prosthodontics Dental Group includes three board-certified prosthodontists as members of its elite team that can handle all of our patient’s needs under one roof. Our doctors represent leaders in dental education, internationally renowned lecturers, and developers of cutting-edge research.
Prosthodontists are specifically trained in helping patients with dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures, as well as cosmetic dentistry and temporomandibular disorders (TMJ/TMD). They are also trained in correcting issues involving the face, jaw, and mouth.
We forge lasting relationships with our patients to provide targeted, customized care as their dental needs change throughout their lifetime.
Dentistry is both art and science. The doctors at Boston Prosthodontics Dental Group 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 and surgical training as well as clinical and laboratory experience, patient care, and research.
The in-office dental laboratory works with the finest and most well researched dental materials available and allows for ultimate communication between doctor, patient, and laboratory technician to achieve superior results for our patients.
Prosthodontists have advanced training in:
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 region.
Our dental office also includes a board-certified periodontist, giving patients convenient access to a broad range of highly specialized services.
