If you have never heard of a prosthodontist you are not alone!
Prosthodontics is one of nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. We specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of complex dental and facial problems that involve restoring or replacing missing teeth and associated structures. Our treatments can include crowns and bridges, dental implant restorations, dentures and cosmetic dental procedures.
Prosthodontists are uniquely qualified through their 3-4 years of formal training beyond dental school to assess your dental needs and help you determine the best treatment options for your specific situation. Your treatment may include the care of other dental specialists and we utilize the appropriate dental technologies to provide high quality care in a comfortable environment. We also will work along with your general dentist and other dental specialists help you maintain your new smile into the future.

At Metropolitan Prosthodontics, we are regularly asked questions about being a prosthodontist and why patients should visit one. There are specialties in dentistry just like there are in the medical field. Prosthodontics is one of those specialties and centers around replacing teeth. If you struggle with tooth loss, visiting a prosthodontist will likely produce better results than if you were to visit a general dentist, because you will be visiting someone with more educational and clinical experience. With that in mind, we encourage you to visit our dental office and discuss your teeth replacement solutions. To schedule an appointment, call (763) 559-7600. In the meantime, here are the answers to a few frequently asked questions.

“Dr. Sasik and his team went above and beyond my expectations. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and highly recommend their services. Very knowledgeable and I am confident in putting my complete trust in this team. Dr. Sasik made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire process. I have since referred a family member to him and their experience was equally as pleasant.”
