A Maxillofacial Prosthodontist deals primarily with complex treatments in which prostheses are needed to replace and restore damaged or missing teeth, bone or tissues in or around the face and neck.

A subspecialty of Prosthodontics, Maxillofacial Prosthodontics deal with the rehabilitation of the region of the head and neck for patients with defects (acquired or congenital).

Some patients, due to birth defects (cleft palate, for example), disease (cancer) or trauma (car accident) may need tissue or bone replacement to restore their oral functions, such as chewing, speaking or swallowing. 

A Maxillofacial Prosthodontist is the primary person dedicated to restoring patient’s health by assisting and coordinating the efforts of different health professionals such as oral surgeons, periodontists, plastic surgeons, radiologists, oncologists and many more.


Benefits of Using a Prosthodontist or a Maxillofacial Prosthodontist

A prosthodontist can help you achieve a functional and pristine smile by:

Prosthodontists have more advanced training than dentists or cosmetic dentists

Due to better training and experience, prosthodontists are more qualified in restoring the function and look of your smile

Prosthodontists are especially qualified in prosthetics: crowns, bridges, dentures, implants, and more.

A Maxillofacial Prosthodontist has two more years of training than a Prosthodontist, and five more years than a dentist.

They specialize in restoring damaged or missing facial features. For example, patients who suffered from head or neck cancer.

Aside from more conventional prosthesis (dentures, bridges, etc), they design more complex prosthetics such as orbital, nasal or upper lip prosthesis.

Literally a pleasure to be here. One of the most amazing experiences to know a dentist and staff that embrace holistic dentistry in harmony with our beautiful bodies. They use techniques for healing and relaxation while working on your teeth. I’m always excited to go. I feel like they love my teeth when I’m there!


After having two bad experiences with local dentists , I finally have found one that not only understands my concerns but was able to address each and everyone thoroughly with kindness and patience. Office staff incredibly nice and cheerful, for me that’s a great sign!
