Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is a specialized area of dentistry where prosthodontists replace or restore teeth and other parts of the mouth. Some prosthodontists may focus on the treatment of various types of facial deformities.

Inside Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is a specialization within the field of dentistry that seeks to maintain and restore a patient's oral functions through reconstructive means. Prosthodontists construct various types of oral prostheses and structures to replace missing teeth and correct deformities of the mouth and jaw; these oral devices are designed to improve a patient's appearance and ability to speak or chew. They also perform reconstructive dental work.

Education Information

The American Dental Association (ADA) lists more than 50 accredited dental schools in the U.S. where individuals may earn their dentistry degree. Those interested in becoming a prosthodontist must first earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine or a Doctor of Dental Surgery from one of these dental schools so that they can then apply for admission to a prosthodontistry program.
