Below are some of the more common questions asked about Dr. Jivraj and his staff at the Anacapa Dental Art Institute. If you have additional questions, feel free to call us at (805) 988-3320
A prosthodontist is a highly trained dentist who specializes in the restoration and replacement of teeth. They are experts in complicated dental procedures such as veneers, dental Implants, full mouth reconstructions and others. The thing to remember is a prosthodontist’s specialty is dental prostheses.
To qualify as a prosthodontist, one must receive two to three additional years of training after dental school in an American Dental Association-accredited program, based in a university or hospital. This training includes advanced education and review of lectures, literature and medical journals, treatments of patients and laboratory experience in the fabrication of dental restorations.
As a dental surgeon specializing in dental prostheses, Dr. Jivraj is an expert at the highly complicated dental rehabilitation procedures such as crowns, caps, bridges, veneers, removable partial dentures, dentures and dental implants.
A prosthodontist also is a master of dental revision procedures. When a patient doesn’t receive the results he or she was expecting from their treatment, many get recommended to Dr. Jivraj in order to correct the mishap and give them the smile they desire.
Though many dentists call themselves “cosmetic dentists,” the ADA does not include cosmetic dentistry as one of the nine dental specialties it recognizes.
With that said, a prosthodontist’s extensive three years of additional training, education and experience with the so-called cosmetic dentistry procedures would probably qualify them as the closest thing to a “cosmetic dentist” as there can be. As a comparison, many dentists receive training on complicated procedures from a seminar or a series of courses that last a few days or maybe weeks.
Dr. Jivraj is considered the quarterback or architect of your dental procedures. It is he who directs the vision of your final outcome, both the cosmetic aspect as well as the medicinal and functional components.
Often other dental experts and staff from Anacapa Dental Art Institute may participate in your treatment, but only under strict supervision of Dr. Jivraj. Every step along the way is closely inspected and overseen by him.
