General Dentist vs Prosthodontist vs Board Certified Prosthodontist?
Having healthy and functioning teeth are very important to your overall health. Keeping your teeth regularly cared for by a dentist can reduce extensive procedures. However, regardless of the care you have taken, you may be missing teeth or have a tooth that has become decayed. In which case, a board certified prosthodontist is specialized in restoring your mouth to its natural beauty.
A general dentist is capable of caring for many aspects of your teeth. They are greatly practiced in handling cavities, root canals, cleanings, and other preventative measures. While your general dentist is able to provide you with the regular services you need to keep your smile healthy, there are some treatment plans that are best executed by a specialist in the field.
A prosthodontist specializes in partial and full mouth restorations. They have been extensively trained to create full mouth dentures, bridges, crowns, and dental implants that blend perfectly with your existing teeth. As a specialist in the dental field, a prosthodontist has the necessary skills to evaluate your needs and suggest the best possible treatment plans to restore your smile.
Why you should see a Board Certified Prosthodontist?
A board certified prosthodontist has appeared before the American Board of Prosthodontics and been tested on their knowledge of this highly specialized field of dentistry. The individual is required to present completed cases for review by a panel of qualified prosthodontists. After a thorough examination process, the board will deem the individual a Diplomate of the American Board of Prosthodontics. At that time, they also become a Fellow of the American College of Prosthodontists (FACP). When an individual passes this criteria, you can be sure that they are trusted in their field of expertise.
