Yorktown Heights, NY Prosthodontist FAQs
Nothing can feel more traumatic and defeating than tooth loss. When this happens the best thing you can do for the health of your smile is to see a prosthodontist.
What Is A Prosthodontist?
This dental expert specializes in replacing and restoring missing teeth and jaw structures to improve both the look and function of your smile. We know everything there is to know about dental implants, dental bridges, implants, crowns and even treating temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD).
How Is A Prosthodontist Different From A Cosmetic Dentist?
The answer lies in their education. Unlike other dental professionals, prosthodontists go through an additional three years of treating from the American Dental Association to provide these restorative solutions. From replacing a tooth after an injury to restoring a smile that is affected by a congenital deformity, your prosthodontist offers unique dental skills to reconstruct any smile.
Those with genetic defects, missing teeth or severe damage to their teeth can easily benefit from seeing a prosthodontist. Besides our advanced knowledge and expertise in dental restorations, we also offer revolutionary procedures and techniques to handle just about any dental condition and completely alter your smile. A prosthodontist will be able to look at your smile and determine which dental restoration will be right for you.
What Conditions Do Prosthodontists Treat?
Besides being the recognized experts in replacing missing teeth, prosthodontists can also handle:
- Maxillofacial reconstruction
- TMJ disorders
- Oral injuries
- Sleep disorders and snoring
- Congenital mouth conditions
