Why See a Prosthodontist?
Did you know that 120 million Americans are missing at least one tooth? And that nearly 20% of adults over 65 have lost all of their teeth? Clearly, missing teeth is not an uncommon problem in today’s world. The question is — who will you trust when faced with this predicament?
As you consider this, keep in mind that only 2% of US dentists are trained in prosthodontists. Prosthodontics is the unique specialty of dentistry that focuses solely on tooth replacements and restorative dentistry. Why not take your smile to an expert?
What is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontist — is a specialist in diagnosing, restoring, and replacing missing teeth. They have an acute understanding of the dynamics of a smile thanks to the additional two-to-three years of residency training received after obtaining a DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) or DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) degree. The extensive education and experience make them the top professionals in creating and placing restorations and prostheses, such as dentures, dental crowns, dental implants, porcelain veneers, and more.
The American Dental Association (ADA) identifies prosthodontists as one of nine dental specialties, requiring all prosthodontists to complete their rigorous ADA-credited prosthodontic education program. The intense curriculum trains prosthodontists in the use of cutting edge techniques and procedures that treat multiple, diverse, and complex dental conditions. Whether you’re dealing with a missing tooth or advanced deterioration that demands more intense treatment, Dr. Mueller is prepared to give you the smile of your dreams.

Dr. Mueller and our highly trained staff are dedicated to providing exceptional care, from your first consultation to your final visit with us.
