At Gladesville Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, we provide high-quality care and specialist therapies to those who have not only been affected by gum disease, but tooth loss as well. As such, we also offer prosthodontic treatments which allow patients to successfully replace or restore missing or damaged teeth. Through the latest imaging, photographic, computer modelling and communication techniques, our professional team is able to identify and solve problems before restoring a patient’s mouth to full function and aesthetics.
What is a Prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist is a specialist in the field of restorative dentistry, who is highly experienced in the replacement of missing teeth (and associated tissues) and the restoration of worn and damaged teeth. Just like other specialities within dentistry, a prosthodontist must complete their tertiary education to become a general dentist, before undertaking a further three years of full time training in a university master’s degree programme.
