Need dental implants in Perth?
A Prosthodontist can help.
Have you been looking into implants because you have missing or damaged teeth? Or, has your dentist suggested that dental implants could be an option to replace your teeth?
Before you book your dental implant appointment, it’s important to research which dental specialist is appropriate for you. And, when it comes to dental implants, Prosthodontists can help in many ways.
You may already know what dentists and orthodontists do – but do you know what a specialist Prosthodontist does?
What is Prosthodontics?
Prosthodontics is a field of dentistry that encompasses the use of removable and fixed dental prosthetics, such as dental implants, to restore dental function and appearance.
With an extra three years of training in cosmetic dentistry and full mouth rehabilitation, Prosthodontists are considered an authority when it comes to dental implant procedures.
At Aria Dental in Perth, our prosthodontic treatments are designed to restore or replace natural function and appearance of your teeth.
Our tooth implants are specifically designed to closely resemble your natural tooth roots, supporting a natural look and feel.
How is a specialist Prosthodontist different to a dentist?
General dentists can perform Prosthodontic treatments, but they don’t always have the same amount of in-depth training as Prosthodontists. Prosthodontics is a post graduate qualification. To apply for a position in the course, the applicant needs to have completed a minimum of two years of general dental practice and meet all other requirements for general registration as a dentist. Once accepted into the course, the applicant will complete a further three years of full time study after which they are able to register as a specialist in the field with the Dental Board of Australia.
Prosthodontists have specialty knowledge and skills that give them the ability to diagnose and treat a wide range of health issues.
Specialist Prosthodontists are different to dentists. As an educated consumer, it is important to understand that you have choices in your treatment decisions and that you can be involved in making the best choice for your health and well-being. Before committing to complex, expensive or irreversible dental procedures you should consider has my General Dentist completed appropriate training that enables them to carry out this procedure you should consider has my General Dentist completed appropriate training that enables them to carry out this procedure successfully ?
- Is my General Dentist the best qualified person to carry out this procedure?
- How many times has my General Dentist carried out this procedure in the past as compared to a Dental Specialist?
- If my General Dentist says they are specialised in this procedure, are they a registered specialist with the Dental Board of Australia?
What does a Prosthodontist do?
Your dentist may refer you to a Prosthodontist for complex treatment or if you have multiple issues affecting your oral health. You can also choose to have your treatment performed by a specialist Prosthodontist and can book your consultation appointment directly with one.
At your first Aria Dental appointment, a Prosthodontist will perform a full examination of your mouth.
This exam may involve the use of X-rays and other diagnostic imaging systems, including cone beam CT scans.
This in-depth examination ensures your Prosthodontist can plan a suitable treatment for your teeth and mouth.
