The term prosthodontics means, literally, “tooth replacement”.
Prosthodontic procedures are sometimes carried out by general dentists but are usually the realm of highly trained specialists.
Specialist prosthodontists are experienced in a range of procedures, from single tooth management through to full arch rehabilitations and Teeth in 3 days™. They often work in conjunction with specialists in the related fields of periodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery, a particularly effective collaboration when all of these clinicians work seamlessly under one roof as they do at Collins Street Specialist Centre.
To qualify as a registered specialist prosthodontist in Australia, practitioners must first have the same degree as a general dentist, with honours. They then study for a further three years for a Masters degree or equivalent specific training, making them eligible to apply for registration with the Dental Board of Australia as a specialist prosthodontist. (Never assume that a prosthodontist is a registered specialist; always check on the website of the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
