Why choose a prosthodontist?
"Prosthodontists specialize in restoring missing teeth and treating facial problems. They receive special training in cosmetic dentistry, dental restorations, and TMJ. This training, and their experience with advanced technology, means they are the experts at restoring your smile. Prices for prosthodontics services are comparable to prices for general dentistry.
As a Prosthodontist, my expertise is in restorative dentistry and implants. Restorative dentistry means I restore teeth with treatments like fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, removable appliances like mouth guards, occlusal guards, partial and complete dentures. I also place implants, implant supported crowns, and implant supported dentures; and I perform full mouth reconstructions for patients who need crowns on all their teeth as well those who had any type of trauma to their face."
