Prosthodontics is one of the nine dental specialties recognized by the Australian Dental Association (ADA). Prosthodontists specialize in restoring function and aesthetics.
Extensive training and experience give prosthodontists a unique understanding of restoring the dynamics of a smile and healthy mouth with the creation of tooth prostheses (veneers, crowns, implants and dentures). Often, other general dentists and specialists will require the expertise of a prosthodontist, especially when patients present with complex needs. Becoming a prosthodontist requires an additional three years of specialty training after five years of dental school.
This specialized training must be completed at an ADA-accredited prosthodontic education program. This is where prosthodontists are highly trained in state-of-the-art techniques and procedures for treating multiple, diverse, and complex dental conditions.
Dr. Ambereen Khan trained at the University of Queensland Dental school before embarking on her prosthodontic residency at the prestigious San Antonio programme in Texas, USA. Her experience and dedication to the specialty have seen her head up Prosthodontics at both the University of Queensland and Griffith University. She is delighted to be asked for teaching into the specialty prosthodontic program beginning at UQ in 2018.
Dr. Khan has been a visiting Prosthodontic specialist to our rooms since 2010 and has worked with Dr. Orozco and Dr. Bates on hundreds of implant cases. She works with the best boutique labs within Queensland to maintain her excellent standards. Dr. Khan only employs genuine parts in her implant crowns to ensure all warranty's remain intact for the patient.
Dr. Khan is happy to discuss the range of options available to you from conservative teeth bleaching treatments to veneers and crowns to hide old fillings, discolored and missing teeth. An aesthetic analysis with Dr Khan will assist patients to understand the outcome of the treatment and what may be the most suitable for them.
While we are aware that crowns and teeth do not last forever, our office and specialists are pleased to work with your general dentist to provide ongoing maintenance visits to ensure your work remains healthy for the longest possible time period.
