Missing teeth, crooked teeth, mouth pain, and oral function are the primary reasons people see us. You want a lifetime, super-star smile, all without discomfort. This is the reason you want to see a Prosthodontist specialist. It’s why you need to see Dental Specialties Northwest.
Becoming a Prosthodontics specialist requires three to four years of additional training after dental school. Building upon that training, expertise is gained through years in practice, treating thousands of patients. This proficiency is why so many dentists from all over the west coast, send their tough cases to Dental Specialties Northwest.
The specialty has come a long way since 1728 when Pierre Fauchard began replacing lost teeth with carved blocks of ivory or bone. The technology has come a long way since then, but the idea is the same. Problems with your teeth can cause you troubles in so many ways. It can affect your health, cause you pain, and stymie your career. Even Dr. Fauchard knew the power of a great smile.
Making bad smiles perfect is the role of Prosthodontic specialists. For our patients, the process begins with a consultation with one of our dentists. Together, you will identify a treatment plan that meets your needs. Then, using all of their expertise and decades of experience, Dr. Sweeney or Dr. Ansong, will use the latest technology to make your smile, everything you ever dreamt it could be.
Another piece to Prosthodontics that’s come a long way since Dr. Fauchard’s days, are the advancements in sedation and anesthesiology. In most cases, you’re going to sleep through the procedure, without a care in the world. You won’t feel a thing, and with our expert care, healing will be fast and without much discomfort.
