Why See a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists are specialists in the restoration and replacement of missing teeth and oral/facial structures with natural, esthetic, and functional replacements.
Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). Becoming a prosthodontist requires an additional three years of specialty training after obtaining a DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree which is four years, and also having completed four years of college pre-dental education. The total is a minimal of eleven years. This specialized training must be completed at an ADA-accredited prosthodontic education program.
Advanced deterioration of a patient’s teeth usually creates issues besides loss of tooth or tooth structure which can be addressed by our office. While we may serve as the “architect” of a dental treatment plan, we often collaborate with your general dentist and other specialists to facilitate the complete treatment of your condition.
Prosthodontic treatment can literally redesign your smile with a number of different services. Call our office at Nick M. Nguyen, DMD, Inc. Phone Number 408-269-6570 to schedule an appointment today!
