The average person might not be aware of the difference between a general dentist and a prosthodontist. General dentists receive significant training in the preventive dental care and the treatment of many dental health conditions. This includes dental exams and dental cleanings.
A prosthodontist receives this same level of education. But they go on to earn additional accreditation through continuing education. This allows a prosthodontist to provide specialist oral care services. Upon completion of this advanced education, a prosthodontist is then recognized by the American Dental Association and the American Health Association.
Here at Prosthodontics of the Carolinas located in Charlotte, North Carolina, our prosthodontist, Dr. Ralph Hoffmann has received extensive education and certification. This allows him and his staff to apply a wide range of treatments such as dental veneers, dental implants, dental crowns and dental bridges. Prosthodontics of the Carolina’s can also provide patients with a complete or partial denture as well as an implant-supported denture. Dr. Hoffmann’s scope of treatment also includes full mouth rehabilitation, oral structure reconstruction treatments, and some basic dental care.
