Prosthodontists are considered the leaders of the dental treatment plan. You will find prosthodontists as deans of dental universities, CEOs of dental companies, and research engineers.
They regularly lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other health professionals to develop solutions for your dental needs.
Essentially, prosthodontists due to their advanced training, are THE recognized experts when anything needs to be replaced in your mouth.
While many other dentists can do some of these treatments, prosthodontists are the specialists dedicated to this type of care.
Many patients do not need the expertise of a prosthodontist and can be served by general dentists but some patients require or desire the service of a prosthodontist.
