What is a Prosthodontic Specialist?


A Prosthodontic Specialist specialises in replacing missing teeth and the surrounding soft and hard tissues, using fixed or removable prostheses such as crowns, bridges or dentures. A Prosthodontic Specialist may work with patients who require a simple crown or bridge right through to the more complex cases such as full mouth reconstructions.

Why are Prosthodontics Specialists different to normal dentists?

Prosthodontics is one of the 13 official specialist areas recognized by the General Dental Council. All Prosthodontic Specialists are Dentists who have chosen to specialise in Prosthodontics by completing an accredited specialist training program which normally lasts a further 3 to 5 years to ensure a higher level of expertise in this field.
