What is a Prosthodontist?
Diagnosis is your best investment
A Prosthodontist is a specialist in tooth replacement and the management of occlusion and temporomandibular disorders.
(TMJ/TMD). After becoming a dentist Prosthodontists typically have three to four years of additional university based specialty training.
A maxillofacial prosthodontist also provides reconstructive services for patients with traumatic facial injuries, birth defects such as cleft palates, and patients who have undergone surgery or radiation treatment for cancer.
The dental services we provide at Providence Prosthodontics encompass everything from the smallest fillings to complete oral reconstruction – including dental implants, occlusal treatment and esthetic dentistry procedures.
Malocclusion is related to ear-ache, ear congestion, tinnitus, vertigo and hearing impairment. Occlusal treatment refers to treatment of malocclusion (“bite” problems) which are a primary cause of head, neck and shoulder pain as sell as sore teeth, muscles and jaw joints.
