The American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) ensures standards are maintained in the field. Becoming a Prosthodontist requires an additional 3 years of specialty training after obtaining a dental degree. Training consists of rigorous preparation in head and neck anatomy, materials science, esthetics, and occlusion (bite). Due to this extensive training, Prosthodontists are frequently called upon to treat complex cosmetic cases, full mouth reconstructions, TMJ related disorders, congenital disorders, and sleep apnea by planning and fabricating various prostheses.
In full mouth rehabilitation, the treatment also includes the application of a full set of crowns and other restorations such as veneers. This portion of the rehabilitation can begin when your jaw has finally come to its ideal position. The use of porcelain crowns and veneers raises your teeth into the optimal position and keeps them there. This not only completely relieves the painful symptoms of malocclusion but it also restores the appearance of your teeth to their beautiful and youthful beauty.
