Definition of Prosthodontics

The process of becoming a general dentist requires a great deal of schooling – seven years to be exact. Following dental school, a licensure exam must be passed in the state the dentist intends to open up a practice. However, before they have their own office, an additional two or three years of time at a university or teaching hospital is necessary to become a prosthodontist. This specialty focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of lost teeth. A variety of procedural options may include restoration, rehabilitation, or full replacement.
