What is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontics is one of nine recognized dental specialties, and candidates must undergo three additional years of advanced training and education in a graduate program beyond dental school to achieve this distinction. Prosthodontists like Dr. Ryan specialize in the restoration of not only teeth, but jaw structure as well. While general dentists can also rebuild damaged and missing teeth, prosthodontists are considered the true experts in this art. This type of specialist will be proficient in a variety of services that pertain to this kind of reconstructive care, including cosmetic dentistry, dentures, bridges, dental crowns, dental implants, and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) therapy. That’s why we encourage patients who have suffered traumatic dental injuries, advanced decay, or severe infection to not give up hope on their smiles. Dr. Ryan’s specialty background allows her to excel at even the most difficult cases, helping you rebuild a reliable and confident set of teeth from the ground up.
