There are numerous dental specialties out there, and you need to find the right one for the specific dental work you need done. For example, if you need dental implants, then you do not want to go to a standard dentist. You will be better off scheduling an appointment with a prosthodontist.
This is essentially a dentist who has completed three extra years of education and training in an ADA-accredited prosthodontic program in addition to graduating from dental school. When you need dental implants, you need to call Dr. William Gielincki, Jr., who received a certificate in prosthodontics from the University of North Carolina School of Dentistry.
After graduating from dental school, prosthodontists need to complete a three-year residency program. Through this program, students receive hands-on training in a number of treatments, including dental implant placement and oral restoration. The rigorous experience and training they go through provides them with a more thorough understanding of the smile, so they can recommend other restorative techniques to ensure patients have full, complete smiles.
Part of being a professional prosthodontist involves staying abreast of the latest advancements in dentistry. For example, at Dr. Gielincki’s office, patients can take advantage of All-on-4 dental implants. Instead of replacing just a single tooth, an entire arch of teeth is replaced with only four titanium implants with an arch of crowns going over it. This results in a quicker procedure and faster recovery time. Even if this particular technique does not seem right for you, Dr. Gielincki will be able to review every possible tooth replacement option in detail, so you can make an informed decision.
