Do you know what a Prosthodontist is? If your answer is no, you are not alone. The reason why many people do not know what a Prosthodontist is or does is because there are so few. It takes many years of dedication and determination to achieve this level of expertise.
A Prosthodontist, such as Dr. Mounir Iskandar, is a fully trained specialist in complex dental care and cosmetic rehabilitation. This specialty is one of eight dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association.
Typical prosthodontic training includes four years of dental school and three additional years of training in dental implants, full mouth rehabilitation, crowns, bridges, dentures, cosmetics, and tempromandibular joint function. Dr Iskandar holds a specialty in Prosthodontics and MSD (Masters of Science in Dentistry) obtained from Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2008.
As a Prosthodontist, Dr. Iskandar provides an extremely high level of care for patients who are missing teeth or have significant damage to their existing teeth. His extremely specialized training allows him to deal with a wide variety of problems from the most simple to the most complex. A prosthodontist can be thought of as the dentist’s dentist. He can aid in the rehabilitation of a complete dentition or merely in the replacement of one or two teeth. With the advent of dental implants as a viable means of replacing teeth, the prosthodontist’s role has expanded substantially. The prosthodontist can supply the control and expertise that is necessary to make an implant supported restoration look and function properly.
