What is a prosthodontist?

Prosthodontists are dental specialists. The difference between a general dentist and a prosthodontist is similar to the difference between a general practitioner and a cardiologist in the medical field. Prosthodontics focuses on rebuilding and replacing the teeth in the most functional and lifelike ways possible, and Dr. Barocio had to take three years of training beyond dental school in order to gain this distinction. This means she’s able to provide restorations that are practically indistinguishable from real teeth and is especially adept at helping patients with complicated dental needs.
