How can I find the best dentist for my dental bridge?Cosmetic Dentistry Dental
I know this is subjective, but I have heard horror stories of the bridge falling off after a few months. What should I look out for when looking for a dentist?
A Prosthodontist specialises in the replacement of teeth using crowns/bridges, dentures and dental implants. Several general dentists can also provide this treatment but a prosthodontist’s training is specifically for this type of treatment.
A recognised Prosthodontist in Singapore needs to receive additional three to four years of training, build up clinical cases (and experience) and sit for the Prosthodontic Specialist Exit Exam.
Personal recommendation is a good start, while qualifications and experience are important things to consider. With these information, you are recommended to go for a dental consultation to see for yourself if you are comfortable with him/her to proceed with treatment.
