Prosthodontist vs General dentist:
General dentists are trained to handle all routine dental care, as fillings and to remain oral health in good conditions. However, some general dentists also receive additional training in particular procedures; but, a prosthodontist is a dental specialist who has received extensive, highly-focused training in tooth replacement and restoration.
