How Prosthodontists Differ From Dentists
Prosthodontists specialize in restorative dentistry solutions. They have received extensive training on tooth reconstruction options, dental implants, dental bridges, dentures, and dental crowns which other general dentists have not. Many prosthodontists focus on your jaw health and facial structure to inform your treatment plans. This is especially important for patients with Temporomandibular Joint Disorders, or TMJ disorders. They can also help advise patients on treatment plans for cleft palates, sleep apnea, and oral injury recovery.
