What is a Prosthodontist and the dental specialty of Prosthodontics?

November 16, 2020

If you have a dental problem and you're not sure who is best to deal with it, remember that only a prosthodontist has extended training in several areas of restorative dentistry, including dental implants, crowns, bridges, complete dentures, partial dentures, all esthetics including veneers, occlusion and facial and dental birth development defects. They are also trained in the technical and technology of laboratory fabrication of complex dental prosthetics and complex restoration of dental-facial esthetics. Prosthodontists have an emphasis on the diagnosis and treatment planning of patients who have complex dental needs and on providing treatment services that primarily involve the repair and replacement of natural teeth with a variety of fixed or removable prosthetic options.In addition, prosthodontists collaborate with general dentists, orthodontists, periodontists, plastic surgeons and other health professionals to develop solutions to a patient’s dental concerns. Only prosthodontists, however, are specifically trained to design and supervise a complete dental-treatment plan for optimal function and the perfect smile.

When you require a tooth replacement or oral surgery, consulting with and receiving treatment from a prosthodontist ensures that you’ll get high-quality, efficient treatment that meets your exact needs and produces long-term, beautiful solutions for your smile.

At Coconut Grove, FL, Dr. Bruno Sharp, Dr. Bernard Segall and Dr. Marianna Pasciuta, of Prosthodontic Dentistry of South Florida (PDSF), are changing the lives of their patients every day. As prosthodontists, specialists in restoration and teeth replacement, they are today’s architects of a dental treatment plan and are heralded as “the plastic surgeons of dentistry.

Extended education, rigorous training and experience in an American Dental Association (ADA) Accreditation Program provides Dr. Sharp, Dr. Segall and Dr. Pasciuta with the special skills and understanding of the dynamics of the smile. Their specialized training also includes the preservation of a healthy mouth, the art of creating tooth replacement and treatment of the temporomandibular joint. Prosthodontics is one of the five or six specialties in dentistry and throughout Miami-Dade there are very few who specialize in the field As for “out of the ordinary” patient needs, Dr. Bernard Segall is specialized in maxillofacial prosthodontics having treated patients with head and neck disabilities since 1968 as one of 85 specialists in the field of maxillofacial prosthodontics in the United States. The prosthodontists at Sharp Dentistry also help patients who require the restoration of teeth damaged by nightly grinding, decay or nerve damage, traumatic injuries, gum disease, loss of jawbone due to disease or birth defects, aging and bone shrinkage. For these treatment needs, Dr. Sharp, Dr. Segall and Dr. Pasciuta provide the necessary complex care management and supervision, as well as continuing care. The increased patient demand for aesthetic treatments and for implant-supported prostheses has caused an increased demand for these types of procedures and these highly experienced professionals.
