Prosthodontists

Outlook

The prosthodontists field is small but demand is growing for dental prosthesis and other devices to treat dental disorders, diseases, and injuries. A growing number of people are also seeking the expertise of prosthodontists to help improve their appearance through such things as veneers and teeth brightening and whitening. The Department of Labor forecasts 19 percent employment growth for dentists through 2026. One reason for this faster than average employment growth is that as people age, they need more dental services, and particularly prosthodontists, for complicated dental work such as dental implants, bridges, and dentures. The aging population is also at risk for oral cancer and other types of diseases, which may require cosmetic and functional dental prostheses. Dental insurance may also become available to more people in the near future, which could increase demand for prosthodontists' services.
