Dr. James Courey, Prosthodontist of Manalapan, NJ on Prosthodontics
Manalapan NJ prosthodontist Dr. James Courey wants you to consider the reasons that you
should consider seeing a prosthodontist for a full range of dental needs.
To most of us, a dentist is a dentist. You may have heard of orthodontists, periodontists,
endodontists and others without really giving much thought to what each of these tongue-twisting
terms means. But if you needed to have eye surgery performed, you would find an ocular surgeon—not
because a cardiovascular surgeon isn’t talented or smart enough, but because that is not his or her
specialty. Similarly, if you are considering having a prosthodontic procedure done, it makes sense
to find a specialist to do it. The American Dental Association and the American College of
Prosthodontists set specific, high standards for dentists who aspire to this goal. Finding a
dentist who has done so helps to ensure that you will receive the very highest quality of care.
So, what would qualify as a prosthodontic procedure? We’re glad you asked. Prosthodontics involves the
restoration and replacement of teeth for purposes of aesthetics and function. It includes:
- Inlays & Onlays
- Laser Gum Recontouring
Modern prosthodontics can also include the diagnosis and treatment of related conditions.
Your board-certified Manalapan NJ prosthodontist can also deal with bruxism (teeth grinding),
temporomandibular disorder (TMJ or TMJD), and sleep apnea. He is also in an ideal position to advise
you on the everyday care of your teeth.
