"Dr. Marx, what
is a prosthodontist?"
prosthodontist is a specialist in the restoration and replacement of
broken and missing teeth. Their training lasts an additional three years
after four years of dental school. During that time, they are taught in
greater detail both removable and fixed prosthodontics.
Removable prosthodontics includes replacing missing teeth with appliances that the
patients themselves can take in and out of their mouth, such as dentures
and partial dentures.
Fixed prosthodontics includes replacing missing
and/or broken teeth with restorations that the patient cannot take in and
out, such as veneers, crowns, bridges, and implants.
