Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Graduate programs in prosthodontics include classroom lectures and seminars, laboratory and clinical training in esthetics/cosmetics, crowns, fixed bridges, veneers, inlays, complete and removable partial dentures, dental implants, TMD-jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the mouth’s structures, congenital or birth anomalies to teeth, and oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care.

A prosthodontist is dedicated to the highest standards of care in the restoration and replacement of teeth.

Prosthodontists are the experts in dental rehabilitation and have mastered many procedures including fixed, removable and implant prosthodontics, dentures, and dental implants.  Fixed prosthodontics deals with substitutes which are not readily removed from the mouth, while removable prosthodontics deals with substitutes that are removable from the mouth.  Implant prosthodontics pertain to replacement of missing teeth and / or associated structures by restorations that are attached to dental implants.
