Do you need a Prosthodontics in Richmond VA? Prosthodontics is one of only nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association (ADA). It is the only specialty dedicated to reconstructive, esthetic and implant dentistry. The ADA accredited program consists of 3 years of rigorous post-doctoral clinical training, following dental school, including hands-on fabrication of prosthetic appliances in the lab and classroom instruction. Thus in addition to training commensurate with a degree in general dentistry, the prosthodontist receives extensive formal training in the areas of treatment planning, function of occlusion (bite), full-mouth reconstruction cases and the utilization of tools and techniques to achieve natural looking tooth replacement.
The prosthodontist draws up the treatment plan and is the captain of the multi-disciplinary restorative/esthetic team including other dental/medical specialists. The field of cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty recognized by the ADA. Prosthodontics is the only specialty that offers extensive formal clinical training in esthetic procedures (often described as cosmetic dentistry). There are only 3,200 prosthodontists in comparison to 170,000 general dentists in the United States. Post-graduate programs in prosthodontics are highly sought after and involve much time, money and effort to complete.
