What Is A Prosthodontist?

Dr. JudyStrutz is not just a dentist; she’s also a prosthodontist. A prosthodontist receives an extra three years of specialized instruction that allow them to be certified in restoring beautiful smiles to create a youthful look.  If you have experienced trauma, the loss of your teeth due to periodontal disease or cancer, or you have cracked or broken teeth Dr. Strutz and her team of professionals can help create the smile you are looking for.
 Prosthodontists have specialized training to work with complex cases. Many times these cases are ones your general dentist, or even a dentist who says they specialize in cosmetics, may not have the same or possibly adequate experience to handle.  Dr. Strutz and her team will complete a comprehensive exam that assesses the health of your mouth, your current needs, and then develop a plan that will give you the smile you’re missing.

Prosthodontists have extensive training in esthetic dental work.  Millions of Americans are unhappy with their smile due to discoloration, cracked teeth, or misshapen teeth.  While some dentists take only a few courses on how to handle this situation, a prosthodontist is one of only nine American Dental Association recognized specialties and were truly the first cosmetic dentists. 

In order to provide the best possible outcome, it is important for the dental lab that a prosthodontist works with to be a high quality one. Dr. Strutz prides herself on working with labs that use the top techniques and advanced technology to correctly shape dentures to provide the best fit for you, or crowns and bridges that match existing teeth and restorations.  This lab work is critical to the fit and success of implants as well as other restorations and what helps make Dr. Strutz’s smile makeovers stand out.

Don’t delay, call today for your consultation.
