Facts About A Prosthodontist

A prosthodontist is a dental specialist that has advanced training in oral health issues such as occlusion (bite issues), reconstruction (difficult cases) and overall function. If you have missing teeth or have advanced stages of oral cancer that has done damage to your jaw structure or face, Dr. Judy Strutz is the specialist to call. According to the American Dental Association there are only 3,372 prosthodontists that work in the United States. 

Over 35 million individuals have a tooth or more missing, and while you may want to just go to a regular dentist, sometimes it’s a specialist that is really the best trained person for the job. Dr. Judy Strutz and her team are there to help when others have been unable to. In fact, they often see what others deem as the hopeless dental patient.  

Unfortunately once you are missing one tooth, you are more likely to lose more. Missing teeth can cause problems with overall health, obesity, coronary artery disease, and other significant health problems that can be life changing. Having a permanent solution to a missing tooth, can restore your health and your overall quality of life.  Did you know about 23 million are completely edentulous (have no teeth) and about 12 million are edentulous in one arch? You do not have to be one of the millions Americans that are impacted by this problem.
