What is a Prosthodontist?
Prosthodontists, such as Dr. Courey and Dr. Zagami, are specialists in one specific field of dentistry that focuses on the restoration and reconstruction of your smiles to the highest level of function, health and aesthetics. A prosthodontist’s intensive training beyond the standard dental degree includes 2 – 3 years of additional training and interfacing with researchers and clinical experts from other medical and dental disciplines, giving them a wide range of diagnostic insight and technical abilities to treat the most complicated and challenging dental problems. Imperfect teeth, whether caused by birth abnormality, traumatic accident, natural decay, periodontal disease, an eating disorder, or tooth grinding can be replaced with beautiful, natural looking, functional teeth in the office of a prosthodontist, such as Dr. Courey’s practice, Specialized Dentistry of New Jersey.
