Prosthodontics

Are you a puzzler? Inventive? Someone who enjoys taking things apart and putting them back together? Then prosthodontics may offer you a career that you will enjoy and that will give you ample opportunity to help people achieve better oral functioning and health.

Prosthodontists replace missing natural teeth with fixed or removable appliances, such as dentures, bridges and implants. A prosthodontist specializes in dentures, crowns, bridges, dental implants and temporomandibular disorders.

Advanced education programs in prosthodontics average about 32 months to complete. Currently, you can choose from 45 programs in the United States.
