There are many specialties within the field of dentistry, but there are no specialists quite like prosthodontists. In this field, dentists care about the health of all of your oral structures, but prosthodontists take it a step further by focusing on dental and facial problems that involve restoring missing teeth and jaw structures. They specialize in how the mouth comes together when biting down and are capable of treating complex disorders that affect your quality of life, including TMJ/TMD disorder.
Furthermore, prosthodontists have the training necessary to ensure that your next restoration, whether it’s a full denture or a single dental implant, is naturally and correctly integrating with your existing oral structures. Recognizing this relationship between restoration and oral health is essential to avoid potential problems later on, as well as ensuring a comfortable and long-lasting solution to your tooth loss or maxillofacial problems.
