Why See a Prosthodontist

panoIf you have asthma that is difficult to control, you may be comfortable seeing a general practitioner but chances are, you will want to see a lung specialist. If you need reconstructive surgery on your knee, you will likely seek out an orthopedist who specializes in knee surgery, not a general orthopedist. When it comes to improving your smile, a prosthodontist is the specialist to seek.

Prosthodontics is one of the nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Contrary to popular notion, cosmetic dentistry is not. Prosthodontists are experts in dental reconstruction and rehabilitation, having gone through 3 additional years of advanced training after receiving their dental degree. While aesthetics are important, overall oral health and functionality are just as much a priority to a prosthodontist. Dr. Chen wants to provide you with the best smile possible. She also builds positive relationships with her patients and the doctors that refer to Advanced Dental Restorations.

When Should You See a Prosthodontist

  • Are you afraid to smile?
  • Are you having difficulties eating or speaking?
  • Do your dentures or crowns feel “unnatural”?
  • Do you want the best smile possible?
  • Do you have mild sleep apnea and are intolerant of positive airway pressure therapy?

If the answer to any of these questions is “Yes”, then please contact Advanced Dental Restorations to schedule an appointment. We look forward to seeing your smile!
