  Prosthodontics and Tooth Replacement
 
     
 
Prosthodontics is a specific branch of dentistry that is concerned with the restoration and replacement of teeth. This is accomplished through the restoration of natural teeth and/or by the replacement of missing teeth. A Prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in restoring natural teeth and creating and placing natural-looking substitute or prosthetic teeth. After completing four years of dental school, prosthodontists receive three years of specialized training in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate education program. Because of this additional training, prosthodontists have additional proficiency’s in all areas of cosmetic dentistry, as well as dental implants, restorative and reconstructive care. The primary forms of tooth replacement performed by prosthidontist are with partial or complete removable dentures. Today the most advanced form of tooth replacement is the dental implant, which looks, feels, and functions exactly like the tooth it replaces.
