When seeking the best care for your oral health and smile, knowing your options for treatment can make all the difference. A prosthodontist is a dentist specializing in restoring and rehabilitating oral function, esthetics and comfort by addressing missing or damaged teeth, the underlying bone and TMJ health. Beyond a four-year dental program, prosthodontists attend an additional three years of education, receiving advanced training in procedures like tooth replacement with , dentures and bridges, dental crowns, jaw joint disorders and cosmetic services, among a variety of others.
Much like visiting a cardiologist for a heart condition, seeing the right type of specialist for your dental needs is important for ensuring the treatment solutions and outcomes best for you. Prosthodontists like Dr. Antoanela Garbacea of the Center for Prosthodontics & Implant Dentistry of Laguna Hills are experts in restoring teeth to their highest form and replacing teeth with the most advanced techniques in use today.
