WHY CHOOSE A PROSTHODONTIST?

What Makes a Prosthodontist Different?

The term “prostho” means replacement and “dontist” means dealing with teeth. Essentially, Prosthodontists are THE recognized experts when anything needs to be replaced in your mouth. This can range from a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth and gums in the mouth. While many other dentists can do some of these treatments, Prosthodontists are the specialists dedicated to this type of care.

About Prosthodontics

What is a Prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist, like Dr. Bonilla, is a dentist who has completed dental school plus three additional years of advanced training and education in an ADA-accredited prosthodontic graduate program. They specialize in treating and handling dental problems that involve restoring a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. A prosthodontist is highly trained in cosmetics, dental implants, crowns, bridges, dentures, and more.

Prosthodontists have advanced training in restoring and replacing teeth. Prosthodontists are considered the leaders of the dental treatment plan. They regularly lead teams of general dentists, specialists, and other health professionals to develop solutions for your dental needs.
Why choose a Prosthodontist?
Choose a prosthodontist because of their advanced education and training, efficiency, and expertise with advanced technology. Prosthodontists are extensively trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating complex dental conditions and restoring optimum function and esthetics.

Rigorous training and experience give prosthodontists a special understanding of the dynamics of a smile and the preservation of a healthy mouth.
When should I see a Prosthodontist?
Those likely to benefit from dental implants include people who have been experiencing problems with conventional dentures or simply people who have lost a tooth or teeth. They make life easier for those that have been finding it difficult to chew and enjoy meals and can slow down the process of tissue and bone loss in the jaw. What’s more is that implants can even provide a more youthful appearance due to the way that they will give your facial structure a lift. Furthermore, they will help you to speak more clearly.

However, for this implant procedure to work, there must be enough bone in the jaw. The bone has to be strong enough to hold and support the implant. If there is not enough bone, it may need to be added with a procedure called bone grafting. In addition, natural teeth and supporting tissues near where the implant will be placed must be in good health.

A family dentist or other dental specialists can be useful options for some general dental issues. However, there is another type of dental specialist that is a better option for missing teeth, a prosthodontist.

This specialist is the right option for these complex issues.

  • Dental implants to replace one or more missing teeth
  • Bridges to replace teeth
  • Crowns to improve and restore a tooth
  • Veneers to improve the appearance of one or more teeth
  • Partial dentures
  • Full dentures
  • Complex care management for individuals who have genetic defects, or have sustained injuries to the mouth
  • Teeth whitening for discolored teeth
  • Special oral health care needs of seniors
  • Reconstruction after oral cancer
  • Sleep disorders (APNEA)
How do I get started?
Start with a Consultation with Dr. Bonilla. At this consultation, the doctor will create a customized treatment plan just for you. You’ll learn exactly how much the procedure will cost without having to worry about any surprise fees. And remember: a consultation is a conversation. It’s not a commitment. You have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.
