A prosthodontist is a dental specialist with an expertise in restoration dentistry and the replacement of teeth. Prosthodontists receive an extra three years of intense dental training beyond the regular four years of dental school in an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited graduate program. With their advanced training prosthodontists can restore your smile and improve your appearance using prosthodontic treatments to fix, broken, discolored or misshaped teeth and associated tooth structures. Prosthodontics also known as Prosthetic Dentistry is one of nine dental specialties recognized by the ADA and of the 170,000 dentists in the United States only roughly 3,200 of them are prosthodontists.
