Prosthodontists are fully licensed dentists who hold either a DMD or DDS, but have also undergone an additional 3 years of specialized training in prosthodontics.

Their specialty training includes crowns (caps), bridges, partial dentures, dentures, dental implants & TMD/TMJ issues.

The word “prostho” means replacement or addition & “dontic” means having to do with teeth. So you can think of a prosthodontist as a dentist who specializes in replacement (or prosthetic) teeth.
