Welcome to our multi-specialty dental practice in Boston’s Back Bay, where our dental team includes prosthodontists, periodontists, and endodontists. This collection of dentists and specialists allows the dental office to take holistic approach that caters to a wide array of dental needs. Let’s delve into the distinct role each specialist plays in our Back bay dental practice.
Prosthodontist: Masters of Dental Restoration
Our prosthodontists are artisans skilled in the craft of dental restoration. They specialize in replacing missing teeth and restoring oral function by crafting dental prosthetics like crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants. Prosthodontists undergo additional years of schooling and training, enabling them to undertake dental cases that are more complex, such as complete smile makeovers. Prosthodontists are also masters of cosmetic dentistry creating dental work that’s great in both look and function.
Periodontist: Safeguarding Gum Health
Dedicated to gum health, our periodontists specialize in diagnosing, preventing, and treating gum diseases and related oral conditions. As a specialist in the tissue that supports the tooth, the periodontist can also place dental implants confidently. The periodontist can also support a prosthodontist in dental implant placement by doing tissue grafts if there isn’t enough bone at the intended site of the dental implants.
Endodontist: Masters of Root Canal Expertise
Endodontists specialize in treating the innermost part of the tooth – the pulp. They excel in performing root canal treatments and other procedures to save damaged teeth. While many dentists might perform root canals, endodontists have been shown to have a higher long-term success rate. Endodontists also have access to tools and training to perform root canals on teeth that have complex anatomy that a general dentist would not be able to perform a root canal on.
Incorporating prosthodontists, periodontists, endodontists within our Back Bay dental practice brings a host of benefits for patients. This collaborative approach ensures comprehensive oral care, from routine maintenance to specialized treatments, all under one roof. The collective expertise of each specialist enhances patient outcomes and contributes to lasting oral health.
