Need Dental Implants? Choose a Prosthodontist

couple smiling after visiting prosthodontists“Prosthodontist” may sound like a mouth-full, but these dental specialists get their name because of their unique training and skills. (Fun fact: “Prostho” essentially means replacement, and “dentist” means teeth, so these are the replacement teeth experts.) Prosthodontists attend at least three years of advanced education after completing dental school to learn more about restorative dentistry treatments for the mouth and jaw. They are highly accomplished in areas of cosmetic dentistry, dental crowns, bridges, dentures, and yes – dental implants! Today, we’re discussing why choosing a “prosthodontist near me” for dental implant treatment can give you increased peace of mind that you or your loved one will be in capable, experienced hands. Read on to learn more!

Dental implants are the gold standard in restoring lost or missing teeth, and prosthodontists are the experts in dental implants. By choosing Dr. Abraham Stein at The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry, you can rest assured that your dental implant procedure will be completed with a superior level of skill and precision. Dr. Stein has performed thousands of implant procedures and can help you restore the full, functional smile you deserve. For more information on our services, or to speak with Dr. Stein one-on-one, schedule a consultation by calling us at 847-676-3500.

So, what are the benefits of receiving treatment from a prosthodontist?

Prosthodontists have advanced training and experience.

Prosthodontists are recognized dental specialists focused on restorative eprocedures. While your general, family dentist is your key resource for minor restorative procedures such as fillings, or preventive care, prosthodontists have completed an advanced education to give them increased skill and knowledge when it comes to restoring damaged or lost teeth. It’s similar to visiting a dermatologist for a skin issue: they have advanced training and experience seeing many patients with skin issues. Though your primary care doctor could offer their own recommendations, you can gain peace of mind that you’re receiving an experienced perspective by seeing a specialist.

Prosthodontists use innovative dental technology.

Prosthodontists, like Dr. Stein, often have additional dental technology and tools that general dentists may not. At the Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry, we have a non-invasive tool that takes the guesswork out of analyzing a dental implant. The Osstell IDx can perform a quick scan to tell if your implant is fully integrated into the jaw bone, or if more time is needed before a crown or bridge can be attached. We also use cone beam imaging which allows us to quickly and comfortably create a 3D image of a patient’s face, mouth, and jaw structure. This aids our team during an implant procedure, and helps the dental lab technicians create the perfect crown, bridge, or dentures that will fit your smile.

Prosthodontists perform dental implant procedures regularly.

In addition, patients who may have complex oral health issues (such as bone loss in the jaw or other similar conditions) can benefit from seeing a prosthodontist who has successfully completed treatments in patients with similar issues.

How can I find a prosthodontist near me?

If you are facing tooth loss, choose a prosthodontist to help you recover your full, functional smile. If you’re looking for a “prosthodontist near me,” consider The Stein Center for Advanced Dentistry! Dr. Stein can explain more about his approach to dental implant treatment and can determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. Contact us today!

Dr. Abraham E. Stein

From start to finish, a fabulous experience (sounds like an oxymoron when talking about "dental visits", but actually true). From stepping in and encountering a superbly run front desk and incredible dental hygienist (whom I have seen for 20+ years), great dental assistants, and of course the master himself -- Dr. Stein. He has done amazing things to my 65+ year-old choppers such that they are in the top tier of my peers. Need I say more?
