THE PROSTHODONTIST Q: What is a prosthodontist? Among the various specialists in the arena of dentistry is the prosthodontist. The prosthodontist specializes in the placement of restorations, like dentures or bridges, in the mouth. A prosthodontist may do something as relatively simple as putting a single crown on a tooth. He could also do something as complicated as a full-mouth restoration that might involve a combination of bridges and implants. A prosthodontist is also the doctor who would be called in to do restorative work after, say, the removal of a cancerous portion of the mouth. After four years of dental school, prosthodontists go on for another three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association-accredited graduate program. A prosthodontist often will act as the head of a team of dentists, other specialists and health care providers in figuring out the best way to address your dental needs. Talk with your dentist about the special skills of a prosthodontist and whether you are a candidate for those services.
