Why See A Prosthodontist For Restorative Dental Care?

If you need restorative dental care in Mount Pleasant and you’re not sure where to turn to, Advanced Dentistry of Mount Pleasant is a great choice. Dr. Candice Vinson is a specialized prosthodontist, and can provide you with the highest-quality care in the area. Why should you see a prosthodontist like Dr. Vinson instead of a general dentist? Read on, and find out.

Prosthodontists Have Specialized Training In Restorative Dentistry

Unlike general dentists or family dentists, prosthodontists are trained specifically to provide restorative dental treatment to patients of all ages. It’s even in the name! The term “prosthodontics” comes from “prosthesis,” meaning “false body part,” and “orthodontics,” which means “treatment of irregularities in the teeth.” 

In addition to earning a DDS or DMD degree, prosthodontists like Dr. Vinson must go through at least 3 years of hands-on residency training in the field of restorative dentistry, and must earn a specialty certification from the American Board of Prosthodontics. 

That means that prosthodontists, such as Dr. Candice Vinson, are the best choice for restorative dental treatments. Their deep familiarity with restorative care ensures that you get the best possible results.
