A prosthodontist is a specialist that deals primarily with crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants. Prosthodontists are the acknowledged leaders in replacing an entire set of teeth with dental implants. “All on 4” or “teeth in a day” bridges are the most complex dental treatment we specialists provide so coordination between surgeon, prosthodontist and technician is crucial. A complete understanding of where teeth need to be positioned for proper speech, facial support and cosmetics is vital in creating a successful restoration. Prosthodontists train for 3-4 additional years through a hospital or university-based program to fully understand the interrelationship between tooth positions, facial esthetics, speech, and oral function. We are the experts in full arch "All-On-4", teeth in a day implant reconstructions. If you are thinking of dental implants, make sure you consult with a specialist first.

An implant is an artificial tooth root, a cylinder of titanium usually less than half an inch long, which is placed in the jaws. Dental implants were developed in Sweden in the mid 1960’s and are used as supports to permanently attach from one to a full set of replacement teeth. Learn More
