How is a Prosthodontist different from a general dentist or other dental professionals?
The root “prostho” means to replace, and in this case, to replace with prosthetics. Prosthodontists are THE recognized experts you can trust for your oral-prosthetic needs. Severe decay, cancer, or an accident can each be a cause for needing a replacement tooth or teeth.
Though there are dentists which can perform some or all of these treatments, prosthodontists are dedicated specifically to these types of procedures. Prosthodontists have 3 additional years of residency after completing their degree. Prosthodontists are also considered the “quarterback” of the oral treatment plan. Regularly, they oversee teams of both specialists, and general dentists, while caring for your specific situation and needs..
Why see a BOARD certified prosthdoontist?
A board certified prosthodontist means the specialist, after his additional 3 years of residency, has successfully passed a rigorous examination established by an independent authority (board) for the specialty. For example, you would want to see a board certified cardiologist for a heart ailment, and not just a general surgeon. Dr. Huang is a dual-certified prosthodontist by the American Board of Prosthodontics and the Royal College of Dentists of Canada.

Dental Cleanings: This process consists of removing plaque and calcified tartar. Professional dental cleaning helps prevent periodontal disease, cavities and gingivitis. While many people think that brushing and flossing are enough to keep their teeth clean, the truth is only professional cleaning can get rid of calcified deposits (tartar) in hard-to-reach areas of the mouth.
White Resin Fillings: This isn’t your ordinary metal filling. Teeth with cavities can be repaired by removing the decay and restoring the tooth with white fillings. This type of filling is bonded to the tooth and special curing light is used to harden it. Other popular uses for white resin fillings include changing the shape of teeth, repairing chipped or cracked teeth, improving the appearance of discolored teeth, and closing gaps between teeth.
Deep Cleaning: Gingivitis is a serious condition that can lead to the inflammation of the foundations of the tooth root if left untreated. This creates a periodontal pocket where bacteria can thrive. Ultimately, this results to gum diseases or periodontitis. People with gum disease experience a breakdown in the bone structure that provides support to the teeth. If the condition gets worse, the teeth will inevitably become loose. In most cases, patients do not feel any symptoms until the problem is already severe. To make matters worse, the damage caused to the supporting bone structure cannot be reversed. In order to stop the progression of periodontitis, your dentist may recommend deep cleaning or periodontal therapy. This process eliminates the periodontal pocket and speeds up the healing process. The key to stopping the progression of gum disease is treating it at the soonest possible time.
Tooth Pain/Discomfort: Tooth roots can be exposed as a result of tooth decay. This is a common reason for toothaches. Other causes of tooth pain or discomfort include gum disease, cracked teeth and dental cavity. The pain can range from mild to severe. It can also be an indication of a chronic or acute problem. Visiting your prosthodontist immediately is the best option to regain your dental health as well as the confidence in your smile.
Periodontitis (gum disease) This is a chronic infection of the gums and underlying bone that can destroy the bone that supports the teeth. Oftentimes this problem develops without pain, so sufferers do not realize that they have this disease. It is important to get regular cleanings and check-ups so that your dentist can properly screen for this problem. When plaque, a form of bacteria that sticks to the teeth, builds up and is not removed through regular brushing and flossing, problems and infection can result. This problem proceeds through two stages:
Q: What will happen to untreated gum disease/periodontitis?
A: When this condition is left untreated, periodontitis (gum disease), can result in tooth loss. Gum disease is also linked with diabetes and/ or coronary artery disease.
Q: What are some risks factors of gum disease/periodontitis?
A: Poor oral hygiene is the most obvious cause of gum disease, yet numerous risk factors can increase one’s chances of developing gum disease. These factors include: stress, diabetes, tobacco use, family history of the disease, and in women, changes in hormones connected with menopause and/ or pregnancy.
Q: What can I do to prevent advanced gum disease/periodontitis?
A: Thorough and frequent teeth cleaning prevents gum disease and bleeding gums. However, when this issue has worsened to periodontitis, you will need a more thorough cleaning to get rid of the infection and resultant bleeding from the bacteria within your gums. Your dentist or prosthodontist will be able to assess healthy progress and design a program of follow-up visits that is best for you, after proper treatment.
