A: Prosthodontics is one of ten dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). A prosthodontist is a highly trained dentist who has completed dental school plus three additional years of advanced training and education in an ADA-accredited Prosthodontic Postdoctoral Program. Prosthodontics is an all-encompassing specialty. A prosthodontist is responsible for the continuum of care and is the active leader from diagnosis and treatment planning through therapy and maintenance. Prosthodontists are extensively trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating complex dental conditions in order to rehabilitate patients to proper form, function, comfort, aesthetics, and most importantly, health.
A maxillofacial prosthodontist is a prosthodontist who has completed an additional fellowship post residency in the rehabilitation of patients with defects or disabilities that were present when born or developed due to disease or trauma.
