What is a prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in treating and handling dental and facial problems that involve restoring missing teeth and jaw structures. Prosthodontists are the acknowledged experts for anything needing to be replaced in your mouth. This can range from a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all teeth and gums in the mouth. While many dentists can do some or all of these treatments, prosthodontists are specialists who are dedicated to this type of care. Only prosthodontists can provide complete oral rehabilitation, having received advanced training and education in implant dentistry, TMD-jaw joint problems, traumatic injuries to the mouth’s structures, congenital or birth anomalies to teeth, and oral cancer reconstruction and continuing care. Dr. Jacobs brings extensive experience, advanced knowledge, and skillful use of the latest technology to your care.
