Prosthodontists are specialists in the diagnosis, treatment planning, and rehabilitation of clinical conditions that are associated with missing or deficient teeth and oral tissues. They specialize in the maintenance and improvement of oral function, comfort, and aesthetics. Prosthodontists are trained through a university or hospital-based advanced education program, which provides knowledge and skills beyond the training of general, family, or cosmetic dentists. The training includes advanced-level lectures, courses, clinical and laboratory experiences, patient care, and scholarly research. Prosthodontists are proficient in comprehensive oral health diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment. Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association.
