Why Visit a Prosthodontist?

Dr. Smith is your Mount Pleasant prosthodontist. Compared to general dentists, prosthodontists have three additional years of specialized training in the American Dental Association accredited graduate program. After completion of the program, prosthodontists are considered experts in the rehabilitation of smiles through cosmetic and restorative treatments such as dental implants, crowns, veneers, bridges, dentures, and more.

Prosthodontists are regularly called upon to design treatment plans for patients with missing or damaged teeth in order to help improve comfort, restore dental function, and enhance smiles. Seeing a specialist in this field of dentistry can help ensure you achieve a successful outcome.

Your First Visit & What to Expect

When you arrive at Smith Custom Dentistry, you will be greeted by Dena, our awesome Practice Manager. She will give your medical and dental information to Dr. Smith for review while you receive a CBCT scan of your jaws and teeth, in addition to any other radiographs we feel necessary. After we have collected this important information, Dr. Smith will do a thorough exam of your teeth, gums, and jaw joints. During this exam, you will learn about the condition of your teeth and any dental restorations already present. Dr. Smith will listen to your concerns, discuss general treatment options available to you, and his recommendations.

Dr. Smith feels strongly that every patient should be aware of their dental situation, educated on the various treatment options, and should be a part of the decision-making process in their treatment. This experience is meant to be purely educational. Dr. Smith will use visual aids and take the time to explain different types of procedures and restorations, their pros and cons, and how they relate to your dental situation. In straightforward cases, we can often give you a treatment plan at the end of this appointment; for more involved or complex treatments, Dr. Smith will usually get models to review, in addition to the other information we’ve gathered at this first visit, and have you back for a treatment planning discussion. Once you and Dr. Smith finalize a plan, we will start the process to get you back smiling again!
