If a patient in Worcester is looking for a dentist to replace their missing teeth, their best bet is to see a prosthodontist. While some general dentists offer such services, prosthodontists specifically specialize in restoring the function, comfort and appearance of teeth. Their specialty enables them to not just replace a tooth, but also make sure that it works well in conjunction with all the other teeth in the mouth.
While the ADA doesn’t recognize cosmetic dentistry as a speciality, the prosthodontics specialty is the closest specialty to match the description. The work they do can range from basic esthetic dentistry to full mouth reconstructions, involving multiple teeth and dental implants.
All of these skills don’t come easy, though. A prosthodontist can expect to spend an additional 3-4 years in school honing their craft and it shows in the quality of their work.
If you ever find yourself cursing an ill-fitting set of dentures or wanting dental implants don’t hesitate to contact CNE Dental to get an appointment with a prosthodontist that will offer a comprehensive consultation.
