Many patients choose a prosthodontist as a general dentist because of their rigorous education in general dentistry and their training in advanced dental techniques. Along with providing quality treatments, like the replacement and reconstruction of teeth, Dr. Kauftheil believes in giving each patient a level of personal commitment that makes them feel both comfortable and informed about their options.
Dr. Kauftheil is a member of the American Dental Association and the American College of Prosthodontics. Additionally, he regularly takes continuing education courses to offer his patients the latest dental treatments, including those in cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign®, and smile makeovers.

One of the most common dental emergencies is tooth pain or dental pain, which can be caused by various factors such as cavities, gum infections, or even a cracked tooth. The intense pain experienced during a toothache can be debilitating and may require immediate attention from a dentist to diagnose and treat the underlying cause.
A broken tooth can occur due to trauma or biting into hard objects. When a tooth breaks, it not only causes discomfort but also poses risks for infection and further damage if left untreated. Seeking prompt dental care is crucial in order to assess the extent of the breakage and determine appropriate treatment options.
Similar to a broken tooth, a chipped tooth is another common dental emergency that often results from accidents or injuries. While some cases may involve minor chips with no significant pain or sensitivity, larger chips can expose the inner layers of the teeth, making them more susceptible to decay and additional damage.
Having loose teeth as an adult is generally abnormal and requires immediate attention. This condition may indicate advanced gum disease, bone loss around the affected tooth, or injury. It's important to seek professional help promptly since saving a loose tooth depends on identifying its root cause early on.
A missing tooth could occur due to several reasons, including trauma, severe decay leading to extraction, or natural causes like the aging process (tooth falling out). Regardless of how it happens, though, replacing missing teeth should not be delayed as it can affect both aesthetics and oral function significantly.
