What is a prosthodontist?

“Dr. Huq, what is a prosthodontist?”

A prosthodontist is a specialist in the restoration and replacement of broken and missing teeth.  Their training lasts an additional three years after four years of dental school. During that time, they are taught in greater detail both removable and fixed prosthodontics.

Removable prosthodontics includes replacing missing teeth with appliances that the patients themselves can take in and out of their mouth, such as dentures and partial dentures.

Fixed prosthodontics includes replacing missing and/or broken teeth with restorations that the patient cannot take in and out, such as veneers, crowns, bridges, and implants.
