WHAT IS A PROSTHODONTIST?

A prosthodontist is a specialist who has received two to three additional years of education and training after dental school at an American Dental Association (ADA) accredited institution. He or she is a specialist of the art of treating damaged and missing teeth. The additional training focuses on mastering the techniques necessary to correct imperfect smiles. As such, Dr. Jivraj delivers among the best dental implants Ventura has available.

Simply put, prosthodontists are the champions of mouth rehabilitation. Likened to a quarterback or an architect, a prosthodontist is the expert of a team that knows how to make your smile ideal and rehabilitate your mouth back to a healthy state again.

When it comes to your smile, trusting a prosthodontist is the wisest choice you can make. Seeing that many procedures in the field of cosmetic dentistry are better when done right the first time, putting your trust in someone who extended their training an additional three years and who is considered a master of mouth reconstruction is simply the smart choice.

WHY CHOOSE A PROSTHODONTIST?

Prosthodontists are dental specialists in the cosmetic, restoration and replacement of teeth who have completed dental school plus three additional years of advanced and extensive training and education in an ADA-accredited prosthodontics graduate program. This is where prosthodontists are highly trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating multiple, diverse, and complex dental conditions. They will also learn how to restore the optimum function and aesthetics of a smile.

What is a Prosthodontist and Other Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Prosthodontics?

Prosthodontics is a dental specialty recognized by the American Dental Association. It is the art to replace missing teeth by prosthetics means, including Implant Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry and Oral Rehabilitation.

The maximum authority on Prosthodontics is the American Board of Prosthodontics, which is an organization of experts in the field that recognizes and certifies the specialists in Prosthodontics.

What Is Board Certified Prosthodontist?

Additionally to the National and Regional dental boards common to every dentist, a Prosthodontist becomes eligible for board certification upon completion of his/her training in Prosthodontics. A Board Certification is a rigorous process that involves four stages, including oral and written examinations about Dental implants, Complete and Removable Implant dentures, Full Mouth Reconstruction and Cosmetic Dentistry from cases actually performed by the candidate. Dr Castro is a the only Board Certified Prosthodontist in Georgia, with a surgical training in Implant Dentistry. Learn more about a Board Certified Prosthodontist.

Who Needs A Prosthodontist?

If you are looking for the highest standard of care, are missing one or more teeth, have problems with the appearance of your smile, have complex dental problems or need help with TMJ problems, then you are better served by a Prosthodontist.

How Is A Prosthodontist Different Than My Regular Dentist?

Although typically your general dentist is a great help treating overall dental conditions, more advanced cases require an expert training. That includes high esthetics or cosmetic requirements, implant dentistry, implant dentures, implant bridges or full mouth reconstruction. If you general dentist offers a complete mouth reconstruction, he may be going beyond his scope of clinical training. Verify credentials and expertise before proceeding with actual treatment and feel free to obtain a second opinion.

Is My Cosmetic Dentist A Prosthodontist?

Cosmetic dentistry is not a recognized specialty per se, it is rather a branch of Prosthodontics. Prosthodontists are the only dental specialists with extensive clinical training in cosmetic dentistry. General dentists may pursue advanced education and hands on courses, not in a clinical environment and some get to develop a great set of skills in cosmetic dentistry.
