A prosthodontist is a specialist in cosmetic, implant and restorative dentistry, who has spent an additional four years in full-time study, after becoming a dentist, advancing his knowledge, skills and ability.

A prosthodontist is a diagnostic and treatment-planning expert who deals commonly with complex dental problems.

Multidisciplinary dental treatment requires teamwork. A prosthodontist will usually network in a team to achieve optimal long-term dental health. There needs to be close co-operation between the general dentist, periodontist, oral surgeon, orthodontist, as well as the highly skilled dental technicians in working with you the patient to achieve healthy and aesthetically pleasing long-term dental health.
