Today’s consumers are not satisfied to have the neighborhood dentist exclusively in charge of their smile. Patients seeking comprehensive dental implant makeovers want to “shop around” and compare everything from philosophy of care to the always important bottom line.
Knowledge of how critically important healthy teeth are to overall wellness has pushed the “patching as needed” concept into the background and led those who prize optimum health to consider a major investment in their smile. Searching for the right team with the right experience is the ideal methodology. An individual should commence treatment only when the perfect mix of confidence, skill, credentials and published results blend together. Several opinions allow prospective patients to draw educated conclusions about what will be their best long-term dental solution. Collecting all of the facts is highly recommended.
The prosthodontist is part engineer, part artist, and ultimately the dental perfectionist. Even before the prosthodontist looks inside a patient’s mouth, he or she has in mind a vision of the dimensions needed to create the best possible arrangement of teeth for each individual’s face. It is in the professional nature of the prosthodontist to recommend a treatment plan that will result in excellent occlusion, esthetics, comfort and longevity. Their patients receive a product at the highest end of the dental spectrum, and one that holds its value in both glamour and function long after it leaves the “show room” floor.
Prosthodontists do not fear second opinions because their vision of the end result includes all facets of execution. Their expertise in aligning prosthetic teeth makes them the prime architect for implant placement, ensuring that a single mind guides both the surgical foundation and the ultimate delivery of a sound, sparkling smile.
Other oral specialists might call the prosthodontist arrogant, but in education, practice and three-dimensional challenge, these are the men and women who are envisioning, building and maintaining the most natural looking and enduring smiles. They welcome second opinions!
