Your Prosthodontics Primer

Posted .

Everyone basically understands what it means to be a dentist. But did you know that there are several recognized specialties within the field of dentistry? These specialties focus on different areas of dentistry, including the gums (periodontics), the interior of the tooth (endodontics), and the alignment and position of teeth (orthodontics). Dr. Nicholas Kondon is a trained prosthodontist. But what do prosthodontics mean? Here is a quick primer.
