Understanding Prosthodontics

Northampton, MA – Every Northampton, MA general dentist at EMA Dental can handle a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry and dental hygiene issues. However, some patients require the specialized help of EMA Dental’s trained prosthodontists: Dr. Vincent Mariano and Dr. Thomas Vergo.

“The specialty of prosthodontics isn’t well understood by many patients,” explains Mariano, one of the practice’s Northampton, MA dentists. “Prosthodontists are specialists in the restoration and replacement of teeth and surrounding dental structures.” The doctors at EMA Prosthodontics are specialty-trained in esthetics, crowns, bridgework, dentures and dental implants.

“EMA’s prosthodontists have trained for three additional years following dental school to become specialists in the unique field of prosthodontics, one of the nine specialty fields in dentistry,” observes Vergo, a member of the Northampton, MAcosmetic dentistry practice. Presently there are approximately 3,000 trained prosthodontists in the U.S.; a little more than 1,000 of those are board certified.

“EMA Prosthodontics is the only prosthodontic group in Western Massachusetts,” notes Mariano, a Northampton, MA dental implants specialist. Furthermore, Mariano is the only board certified prosthodontist in Western Massachusetts and Vergo is the only maxillofacial prosthodontist in Western Massachusetts. Marianoand Vergo have affiliations with the Tufts Prosthodontic Specialty Program in Boston and the University of Connecticut Prosthodontic Program.

“Some patients require the sort of specialized treatment that only prosthodontists can give,” says Vergo, whose office also supplies Northampton, MA Invisalign. “It is especially beneficial for EMA’s dental patients that they can receive the prosthodontic care they need within the same office.” The Northampton, MAfamily dentists at EMA Dental are proud to be able to offer the highest level of prosthodontic specialty treatment at their practices in East Longmeadow and Northampton.
