Prosthodontists

call for appt 319-335-7274

Missing teeth can impact a person’s self esteem and quality of life. Dental implant treatment can offer patients additional options for replacing a missing tooth. Patients can benefit from improved comfort and ease in chewing and speaking, as well as a beautiful smile.

A prosthodontist is a dentist who specializes in Prosthodontics, the specialty of implant, esthetic, and reconstructive dentistry. Prosthodontists at the College of Dentistry have received additional training after dental school to learn how to manage complex dental treatment as it relates to restoring teeth, with crowns, bridges, dentures, removable partials, veneers and implants.
