Never heard of a prosthodontist? “In its simplest form, as a prosthodontist, we’re trained to restore and replace missing teeth,” says Frank R. LaMar, D.D.S., prosthodontist at the Elmwood Dental Group and a national spokesperson for the American College of Prosthodontists.
Prosthodontists are dental specialists with three years of advanced residency training beyond traditional dental school, dedicated to patient results and objectives as they relate to dental function, comfort and esthetics. Prosthodontics is one of only nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Those with a heart problem might visit a cardiologist. For complex dental problems, it is important to consider seeing a prosthodontist.
Dr. LaMar has changed thousands of patients’ lives through prosthodontics. LaMar is co-founder of the prosthodontically-based, nationally-utilized dental implant solutions known as Hybridge.
Hybridge dental implant patient Mike Kesselring of Rochester lost his front teeth in a scooter accident while on vacation with his family. He found peace of mind through working with a prosthodontist.
“In my life, to be walking around with no teeth, it was terrifying. From the very beginning, they made me worry-free with a plan that was set out for me, and how they were going to get me through this process. Each step got us that much closer to the finish line and the final product. Having a negative turn into a positive was absolutely incredible to me,” he said.
Dianna Cantrell of Rochester struggled with failing teeth and conventional restorations and turned to Dr. LaMar for a more permanent solution. “I wanted to be complete done with all of my dental problems. No more cavities, root canals, or crowns.” She was elated with the end result. “Now, I smile with confidence.”
The replacement of missing and unhealthy teeth through prosthodontics can contribute to confidence, long-term health and overall happiness. For more information on prosthodontics, visit GotoaPro.org.
