Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, Newton, MASo you're ready to do some dental implants. If so, do your homework and choose a prosthodontist. Unlike a general dentist, a prosthodontist specializes in smile reconstructions and has three years of additional education and additional expertise above and beyond dental school. They are the 'architects' and 'finished carpenters' of quality-focused dental care.

A prosthodontist, like Dr. Ryne Johnson of Newton Wellesley Dental Partners, will often use CT sans and computer diagnostics to understand the bone-topography how dental implants will impact your smile. They know how to balance your bite, and ensure that your normal speech pattern is not affected once the dental implants have been placed.

Prosthodontists will also customize your dental implants to fit your individual needs...a custom approach is ALWAYS better. Many dentists tout some expertise from a conference or correspondence course but prosthodontists are the REAL DEAL! The result will be the most attractive, natural looking and appropriate mouth restoration for you.

Dr. Johnson has been performing dental reconstructions, using implants since 1988, and has lectured on this topic throughout the country. That experience means that he can handle the complicated cases in addition to the cosmetically-demanding situations. Why settle for less?
