What is a Prosthodontist?

Because of the post-graduate training dentists must undergo in order to become a board eligible Prosthodontist, there are many advantages for patients when it comes to visiting a Prosthodontist over a general dentist.  Below you will find some of the benefits of consulting a Prosthodontist to take care of your dental needs:

Holistic Approach For a Healthy Mouth and Body

Recent scientific evidence shows that the health of you mouth and teeth affects your entire body. Prosthodontists are trained to treat your mouth as a whole and view your case holistically. By looking at the relationship between your back and front, lower and upper teeth, and the mechanics of your specific mouth, Dr. Choi is able to come up with the best treatment plan for you.

Prosthodontists like Dr. Choi understand that nothing is isolated in the mouth. For example, if a patient just wants the front teeth worked out for any aesthetic issue, but the back teeth do not provide proper support to the front teeth, then the front teeth may start breaking when the procedure is performed.

Holistic View Meets the Latest Technology at our Westlake Village Dental Office

Because Prosthodontists undergo additional years of intense training after completion of dental school, Dr. Choi possesses a strong scientific background incorporated with his traditional dental training.

Is the Latest Technology Important When Looking for the Best Dentist?

Being the best dentist means knowing everything that is out there, how it works and how it can improve the look, feel and overall health of your smile.

Your Dentist Needs to Understand the Long Term Implications of Technology

Dr. Choi’s training as a prosthodontist has prepared him to understand the latest technology but also understand the technologies that are right for your dental needs.  Prosthodontists have a deeper understanding of the mechanics and materials used in dental procedures. Our Westlake Village Dental Office is kept up to date with the latest technologies in dental tools and materials, which contributes to longer lasting treatments.

Results that Last

Each treatment plan is made based on the patient’s specific needs. Because prosthodontists such as Dr. Choi come up with complete medical plans for patients, the results are longer lasting than they may be from other dentists. Your teeth will be analyzed for the long term, and any restoration procedure will be based around strong teeth. Performing any procedure on bad or weak teeth could endanger the durability of the results.

Prosthodontics can actually save you time and money

Going to a prosthodontist has the potential to save you money in the long run because dentists that are prosthodontists engineer for durability and longevity in the results.  Although simple dental procedures may be more affordable at first glance, you may not only endanger your dental health but you may also be forced to spend money on rehabilitations and procedures that may not have been needed initially.

At Westlake Village Dental Health, contact our Prosthodontist, Dr. Mike Choi, to restore and improve your dental health.  Schedule a visit or appointment by calling our California office number at  (805) 494-4887 or contact us online.
