What is a Prosthodontist?
A prosthodontist is an expert in the dentistry field that is responsible for tooth restoration. These professionals can give you that beautiful smile you've always wanted. Aside from the required four years of dental school, the prosthodontists at Salem Dental Arts also completed an additional three years of specialized training in a graduate program accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA).
Role of the Prosthodontist
The prosthodontist is the one who coordinates dentists, and other specialists to prepare the best treatment plan with the best outcome for our patients with missing teeth. To solve your oral issues, you need the help of our entire team of dedicated specialists. The ADA recognizes nine dental specialties, including prosthodontics.
How Can a Prosthodontist Help You?
Dr. Pamela Maragliano is trained to care for the most complex cases in dentistry and has decades of experience, in addition to the required education to perform these procedures.
Some patients will need the help of a specialist who can successfully treat their oral health issues, and that is when Dr. Pamela Maragliano can assist you. She can handle a variety of severe oral health problems including:
||Missing teeth. This can be a traumatic situation for an adult, and it can affect their quality of life. People who have lost teeth avoid social situations and can develop depression. With things like dentures, crown, bridges, or dental implants, we can help you smile again.
||Dental Restorations. We can help patients who need a full mouth restoration, as well as those who only need one tooth replaced. For those with traumatic injuries, we can restore and repair your mouth and give you back that beautiful smile with different types of procedures.
||Cosmetic Dentistry. When you want to improve the look of your smile, we are here for you. We will review your oral health history, do a complete examination, and take x-rays to determine how to give you a smile you can be happy with.
