If you suffer from one or more missing teeth, dental implants may be your best choice. With dental implants, you are replacing both the root and crown of the tooth, therefore getting a much more lifelike substitute that can provide a permanent solution to smiling, eating and speaking again. In Houston, there are many dentists that can perform dental implants; however, the success of the procedure is largely dependent on the skill of the dental professional. A prosthodontist specializes in restoring missing teeth and can ensure the best outcome for your smile.
What Makes a Prosthodontist Different from Other Dental Professionals?
The American Dental Association (ADA) has recognized prosthodontics as a specialty field in dentistry. Houston Prosthodontists such as Dr. Johanna Yepez are uniquely qualified to help patients with teeth that are cosmetically or functionally deficient; patients who have lost their teeth and patients with oral and maxillofacial challenges.
If you are looking for a prosthodontic specialist in Houston that can treat complex cosmetic or restorative dental issues, visiting Pure Prosthodontics should be your first choice. While dentists can provide excellent cleaning and restorative treatment, prosthodontists have an additional three years of advanced education and training which enables them to help patients with more specialized and advanced treatment needs. During their additional education, prosthodontists are trained to address the problems that result from missing teeth and jaw structure. They are skilled at providing dental implants, crown and bridge, full and partial dentures and the treatment of temporomandibular joint disorder, or TMJ. With expertise and experience, prosthodontists are like architects and artists creating beautiful and healthy smiles. Often, general dentists refer their patients to prosthodontists, but referrals are not necessary.
