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.
