How to Choose a Prosthodontist – Everything You Need to Know

In our previous blog posts about prosthodontics, the team at Advanced Dentistry of Mount Pleasant has discussed what makes a prosthodontist different from a general dentist and the benefits of seeing a prosthodontist. But you may still be wondering how can you choose the right prosthodontist for you? 

What Treatments Do Prosthodontists Specialize In?

Prosthodontists are specialists in restorative dentistry and focus primarily on the design and placement of artificial teeth, such as dental crowns and bridges, veneers, dental implants, and full/partial dentures.

If you have serious oral health issues and may need one or more of the above treatments, seeing a prosthodontist is usually the best option. Prosthodontists like Dr. Vinson are uniquely qualified for restorative dentistry and will help you get a functional, beautiful smile. 

What to Look for When Choosing a Prosthodontist

There are a few things you should keep an eye out for during your search, including:

If you can, find a qualified prosthodontist who gets great reviews. Also, look at some of their work for yourself, so you can be sure that you’re working with an experienced professional.

What Should I Ask During My Interview or Consultation?

Most prosthodontists will offer a smile consultation and exam before you undergo a smile makeover, so it’s a good idea to have some questions to ask to make sure you’re choosing the right dentist.

These are just a few examples. Take some time before your consultation to write down any other topics you’d like to discuss, and your prosthodontist will be happy to answer each one at your consultation.
