A restorative technician is the dentist specialised in prosthetic dental treatments.
The current trend in dentistry is to specialise in the various branches of odontology. Just as the surgeons or implantologists insert the dental implants, so restorative clinicians are responsible for rehabilitating the implant and adding the crown.
The restorative clinician plays a key role as the final work both aesthetically and functionally will be their responsibility. It is vital that the teeth being inserted look natural as much as the patient being able to chew comfortably.
The result of advances in both technology and materials means there is a wide range of possibilities when it is time to restore the affected area. The restorative clinician will often be able to propose various solutions to the problem with which the patient presents.
