A Prosthodontist is a specialist in Aesthetic and Reconstructive Dentistry, one who has spent an additional four years in full- time study (after completion of General Dentistry) advancing his skills and ability in diagnosing, planning and treating complex cases. The focus is placed on the replacement of missing parts of the dentition and related structures.

A Prosthodontist is a master of Smile Analysis and design relating the appearance to the function of the oral cavity. All must be in optimal working order as well as aesthetically appealing. A successful outcome is dependent on astute diagnostic skills and attention to detail.

Specialist dental treatment often requires the intervention of a number of different disciplines such as Periodontal (gum), Orthodontic, Endodontic (root treatment), Maxillo-Facial and Oral Surgery or Prosthodontics.

The Prosthodontist is the “co-ordinator” in multi-disciplinary dentistry and should be consulted first.
