What you need to know:
Prosthodontist*: A prosthodontist works with the restoration/replacement of teeth (implants, dentures, etc.). For more information on why seeing a prosthodontist is important, visit GoToAPro.org.
Periodontist*: A periodontist works with gums which can mean treating gum disease, repairing cosmetic concerns, as well as placing dental implants.
*These types of specialists complete dental school and receive additional education and training.
Why is it important for you to have access to specialists?
The health of your body is dramatically impacted by the health of your teeth and gums. Over the past 20 years, researchers have discovered more and more evidence of the connection between your oral health and your general health. If your gums are not healthy, bacteria in the mouth have easy access to your bloodstream. Missing teeth can significantly reduce your ability to eat nutritious foods like raw vegetables, fruits and grains. Missing teeth can also throw the balance of your bite off, causing grinding, headaches, tooth wear and gum disease.

“Everyone is so pleasant and helpful. There is no way my experience could be any better!! Especially the office staff.”
“Dr. Cunningham is a fantastic dentist. Over time he has re-done all of my old crowns and added new ones giving me a beautiful smile. He works with an in- house lab so everything is prompt and perfect. Most of his staff has been there the entire 12 years I have been a patient so they are very accomplished and and it speaks well of him as an employer.”
