Why Consult A Prosthodontist?

  • What if we could help you stop the natural ageing process? Would that be something you’d like our help with?
  • What do you value most about your teeth?
  • If we happened to come across some things that might keep you from maintaining the current health of your teeth, how soon would you want to do something about it?
  • What if we could get your teeth into a state of health that will keep you from having to worry about dentistry in your retirement years?
  • What if we could help you come up with a treatment plan that is going to minimise the time you have to spend in the dental office over the next 20 years?

What Is A Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is a diagnostic and treatment-planning expert who deals commonly with complex dental problems.

Ordinary dentistry is also part of prosthodontics. All dentistry demands attention to fine detail.

A prosthodontist is a specialist in cosmetic, implant and restorative dentistry, who has spent an additional three years in full-time study advancing his knowledge, skill and ability.
