Prosthodontics, also known as dental prosthetics or prosthetic dentistry, is the area of dentistry that focuses on dental prostheses.
A Prosthodontist is a dental specialist dealing with the preservation, rebuilding and replacement of teeth, who has spent an additional four years in full time study advancing his knowledge, ability and skill.
According to the American College of Prosthodontists, a Prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in the aesthetic restoration and replacement of teeth, and restores the optimum appearance and function to their patient's smile.
Planning, surgical, restoration of implants and rehabilitation of prostheses (crowns, bridges or dentures) all fall under the field of prosthodontics.
