Dental Implants San Antonio
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for facsimile , replacement, teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually any foods they want and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. All of this with complete comfort, I.e.- no pain.
What is a Prosthodontist
A prosthodontist is a trained dentist who has completed a post-doctoral residency program.
PROSTHODONTICS ENTAILS: the replacement of any missing or damaged oral structures, including the teeth, roots of teeth, and bone. This may be accomplished by surgery, restorative procedures, or a combination of both.
Less than 3% of all dentists in the United States are Prosthodontists.
Prosthodontics is one of nine ADA specialties. After completing four years of dental school a student will receive their DMD or DDS degree (there is no difference between the two) and upon completion and passing of necessary licensing exams are able to begin practicing dentistry. Most schools have any where from 50 to 100 students in a graduating class and most of these students will go on to apply to dental residencies (specialty or general) rather than begin practicing.

WHAT DO PROSTHODONTISTS DO?
Prosthodontics means prosthetics of the mouth. Prosthodontists specialize in restoring teeth and replacing missing teeth to create beautiful, and most importantly, healthy smiles. Prosthodontic training involves treating the more complex and challenging cases within the dental patient pool. Learn more about what Prosthodontists do.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED TO SEE A PROSTHODONTIST?
Most anyone can see a prosthodontist. No referral is needed. Learn more about the types of patients a prosthodontist usually see.
In the past, prosthodontics was often divided into two sub specialties: fixed and removable. Today, most prosthodontists do not limit themselves to one or the other. With the popularity and success of dental implants, however, there may be a tendency for prosthodontists to limit themselves to mostly fixed prosthetics. Learn more about prosthodontics.
