What is a Prosthodontist?

A Prosthodontist is an Americal Dental Assocation (ADA) specification for a dentist who specializes in the replacement and restoration of teeth, gums and jaw structures. A highly trained restorative and cosmetic dentist, a Prosthondontist plays a crucial role in helping people achieve and enjoy a natural and healthy smile. Smileboston Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry is fortunate to be led by an accomplished Prosthodontist, Dr. Steven D. Spitz who received his advanced degree from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. In honor of National Prosthodontics Awareness Week, help us in thanking Dr. Spitz for integral part he plays in helping our patients achieve optimal oral health.

A Prosthodontist undergoes an additional three years of training after earning their dental degree, as well as at least one additional residency. This means they are well-equipped to work on crowns and are experts in the placement of dental implants, and other procedures related to the replacement or repair of teeth. Because they are entirely focused on tooth repair and restoration, they are well suited to identify which treatment methods work best for each unique situation.

A Prosthodontist can also deal with more complex tooth and jaw structure issues thanks to their advanced training and technological expertise. They design bridges, crowns, and other restorative items that fit perfectly in your mouth, or they can recommend other, more advanced procedures when needed.

By leveraging his years of training and his commitment to cutting-edge procedures, Dr. Spitz and the Smileboston team are successful in helping patients eliminate any pain, chewing problems, and other issues associated with damaged or missing teeth. Best of all, treatments will leave you with a healthy and confident smile!
