What is a Prosthodontist?


prosthodontist at Legato Dental Centre
The Canadian Dental Association defines Prosthodontics as “that branch and specialty of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis, restoration and maintenance of the oral function, comfort, appearance, and health of the patient by the restoration of the natural teeth and/or the replacement of missing teeth and contiguous oral and maxillofacial tissues with artificial substitutes”. Prosthodontists are therefore highly trained in the fixed and removable replacement of missing teeth, cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and the management of patients suffering from TMJ pain, traumatic injuries, and other oral pathologies.

In addition to basic dental education, Certified Specialists in Prosthodontics must successfully complete an advanced postdoctoral educational program in Prosthodontics. This additional education provides Prosthodontists not only with enhanced knowledge and skills in their specialty but also enables them to interact with researchers and clinical experts in related dental and medical fields.
