What Is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists focus on restoring and replacing teeth. They improve the function of the teeth and jaw and make repairs that also enhance the appearance of teeth. A prosthodontist may assist you with many needs, such as:
- Dentures: Find relief from tooth loss with permanent dentures that will not move and will work with your lifestyle.
- Crowns and bridges: Replace missing teeth with carefully created bridges and crowns that will fit your mouth and improve the aesthetics of your smile.
- Teeth whitening: Remove stains that have built up from smoking or drinking coffee, wine, soda or tea. Dr. Horbar uses a special gel to restore teeth to a stunning white.
You can trust your smile makeover to a prosthodontist, who can give your teeth an entirely new look. Not every dental office has a prosthodontist, but we make it easy at 209 NYC Dental. With Dr. Horbar on staff, we can provide the services our dental patients need without referring anyone to another office.
What to Look for in a Prosthodontist
Finding the right prosthodontist can make all the difference in your experience when you need to get a tooth replaced. You want someone who displays expert knowledge of the field and also has a comfortable manner with patients. A reliable prosthodontist displays many qualities that set them apart, such as:
- Strong communication skills: You need to understand the treatment options available to you. A good prosthodontist will offer thorough explanations of your options and lay out the reasons to choose each type in clear, direct language.
- Excellent attention to detail: Prosthodontists must remain attentive to every aspect of preparation for a procedure. They should notice even small alignment and replacement issues.
- Cutting-edge knowledge: Prosthodontists study the latest techniques during their schooling, and they employ these methods with patients to ensure the best treatment.
