What is a Prosthodontist?

Prosthodontics is a premier branch of cosmetic dentistry responsible for replacing damaged, missing, or dysfunctional teeth. The top prosthodontist is a dental professional who crafts dental prosthetics, also known as fake teeth.

Prosthodontist comes from the words ‘Prostho’ and ‘Dontist.’ Prostho refers to “replacement,” while Dontist refers to “teeth.” The two words mean teeth replacement, which is not far-fetched from the meaning.

After general dentistry, the prosthodontist receives extra training in fabricating crowns and dentures alongside other restorative treatments. A prosthodontist is also responsible for treating Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Premier Prosthodontics, also known as leading prosthetic dentistry, involves developing and implanting dental prostheses. These top dental professionals are also skilled in cosmetic dental surgery.

They understand the dynamics of a smile and the detailed process involved in preserving a healthy mouth. These top professionals are trained to achieve this feat because cosmetic surgery is a confidence builder and self-esteem booster.

What is the Difference Between a Prosthodontist & General Dentist?

General dentists have the task of handling all routine dental care and work. They are also in charge of minor dental procedures such as dental fillings. Some other dentists receive additional training in some other methods.

On the other hand, a prosthodontist is a top dental professional who has additional and extensive training in restoring and replacing missing or dysfunctional teeth.

The prosthodontist handles major cosmetic surgery. Their end goal is to improve your oral self-confidence and self-esteem, thus producing a beautiful smile solution and a better facial appearance.

While a prosthodontist is in charge of replacing and restoring oral health and function, a general dentist is in charge of repairing teeth repair ensuring they are healthy. 

Also, the prosthodontist handles all major surgery, such as jaw surgery, implants, and dentures; however, the general dentist limits the performance of some specific surgery.

The general dentist is your go-to everyday healthcare provider for oral health and a resource for everything. The top (prosthodontist) takes over when there’s a need for additional care and services.

What Does a Prosthodontist Do?

Prosthodontists recognise in restoring healthy teeth and replacing damaged, missing, or dysfunctional teeth. They replace missing teeth with dentures, dental implants, crowns, or caps.

Some specially trained prosthodontists work with people who have head and neck deformities; they replace the missing parts of the jaw and face. They also perform facial cosmetic surgery. 

After comprehensive and extensive training, a prosthodontist recognisable in making teeth replacements such as veneers, crowns, and bridges.

When your dentist faces complex and severe cases, he calls out the attention of the prosthodontist to such matters for intervention.

Prosthodontic Services We Provide

At My Implant Dentist, we provide excellent prosthodontics services to help replace your missing teeth while restoring your smile. Our services include various dental prostheses options. 

Dental Implants

The prosthodontist oversees the dental implant procedure. Dental implants are prosthesis devices for missing tooth replacements made from either titanium or ceramic. Your prosthodontist places them in your jawbone. When it heals, the crowns, bridges, or dentures are there for restoration. 

There are removable and non-removable implant-supported options. But your dental care provider is one of the top positioned to recommend the most suitable for you. 

Dental Crowns & Bridges

Dental crowns, commonly called ‘caps, ’ help cover badly damaged teeth. You will need a crown if you’ve had a root canal or an extensive decayed or cracked tooth. 

Dental bridges are effective when there are one or more missing teeth in a row. 

Orthodontists recognise in tooth and jaw alignment, mainly concentrating on ensuring your teeth and jaw are properly positioned. Prosthodontists, on the other hand, concentrate on tooth and face restoration.

This dental prosthetic has two crowns on either side, with pontics filling the spaces. Once in position, the natural teeth hold the crowns in place, and the pontics cover the space in your grin.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are shells that cover teeth discolouration or chipped teeth to improve their appearance. Veneers are solely for cosmetic concerns and purposes. 


There are two kinds of dentures – partial and full dentures. Full dentures replace a full arch of missing teeth, while partial dentures replace several missing teeth. 

Do I Need a Prosthodontist?

There are so many reasons why you will need a prosthodontist. It could be because of an accident involving the mouth, for cosmetic purposes, or congenital purposes. Your dentist may refer you to a prosthodontist if you exhibit any of the following: 

  • Missing teeth
  • Damaged Teeth
  • TMJ pain 
  • Cosmetic concerns
  • Lost, injured, or decayed teeth
  • Mouth or facial pain
  • Need replacement of a tooth with prosthetic substitute


Is Prosthodontics The Same As Dentures?

No, prosthodontics is not the same as dentures. Prosthodontics is a branch of dentistry associated with replacing and restoring missing or damaged teeth, while dentures are a prosthodontics procedure. 

Do Prosthodontists Clean Teeth?

Your prosthodontist can instruct you on correctly brushing your teeth with a manual or electric toothbrush and flossing your teeth to clean in between them.

Do Prosthodontists Do Root Canals?

No, they don’t. If you need a root canal, your dentist will refer you to an endodontist. 

What Is The Speciality Of A Prosthodontist?

A prosthodontist is recognizable for treating complex dental matters such as restoring and replacing missing and lost teeth.

Which Is Better, Orthodontics Or Prosthodontics?

Orthodontists recognised in tooth and jaw alignment, mainly concentrating on ensuring your teeth and jaw are properly positioned. Prosthodontists, on the other hand, concentrate on tooth and face restoration. The best for you depends on your problem or issue.

I was at a really low point in my life, had an accident 2 years ago which broke 3 of my teeth and a bridge in between my 2 front top teeth. From that moment I became extremely conscious of going out,socialising and found my self withdrawn and depressed as I didn't know what to do.Then a friend told me about My Implant Dentist. I plucked up the courage and went for my first consultation at Mindarie Quinns dental practice with Dr Zaheer who explained all my options and advised all on 4 top and bottom.Not only Dr Zaheer but all the staff and doctors at both Mindarie and South Perth were amazing and extremely professional and made the whole process seemless.Having the treatment has given me back confidence and enabled me to socalise and do things with my family and friends that I couldn't do before.I would like to thank Dr Zaheer and all the team at My Implant Dentist for everything they have done for me and recommended them to everyone I speak to.I just can't stop smiling!!!

From the moment I walked in the door My Implant dentist were very caring and professional. As a dental nurse myself I knew I would be a very hard case as other specialists said they could not help me. After my first consultation with Dr Kent he was confident that he could help me and I was provided with a clear plan for my top and bottom all on four procedure. My new teeth are perfect and so natural looking. He has made the impossible possible for me. I can smile and eat the foods I love again and this has changed my life. Thank you so much to all staff and especially Dr Kent Tan who I can say is the best implant dentist in Perth.

I picked up”Moorooka Dental Care” contact details from the web. I rang for a few questions and the happy voice of Frances had calmed my anxiety down quickly!Dr Kadwa greeted me from the front bench, took me in for the X-ray, dental assessment, carefully explaining the procedure, answered my questions and quoted for the works. He offered to breakdown work items to suit with my needs. The quote was surprisingly very compatible with my previous quote from overseas. (I know I am going to have my dental treatment in the safe zone, most medical advances in Australia).The implant work went smoothly, so smooth that the team had to remind me “Done!”, well beyond my imagination.When he saw me off with the aftercare instructions, I could feel his professional manners with caring characters. I know he has done a few thousand implants but I still received the care of his first. Thanks Zaheer!I requested X-ray images, Fatimatu responded promptly with friendly chatting.I also would like to thank Dr Linh Trần who was in the operation team at the treatment and follow up cares.

Moorooka dental have been a pleasure to deal with. I did a bit of research into dental implants and most companies had hidden fees. I booked a consult and was contacted within a few hrs to get me in and get the ball rolling. I choose to go with he implants using my super. They helped me to do all the paperwork to release the money. Definitely a good dental clinic.
