Dentistry is the branch of medicine that is involved in the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, maxillofacial area and the adjacent and associated structures and their impact on the human body. Dentistry is widely considered necessary for complete overall health. Doctors who practice dentistry are known as dentists. The dentist's supporting team - which includes dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, and dental therapists - aids in providing oral health services.
The majority of dental treatments are carried out to prevent or treat the two most common oral diseases which are dental caries (tooth decay) and periodontal disease (gum disease or pyorrhea). Common treatments involve the restoration of teeth as a treatment for dental caries (fillings), extraction or surgical removal of teeth which cannot be restored, scaling of teeth to treat periodontal problems and endodontic root canal treatment to treat abscessed teeth.
Dentists also encourage prevention of oral diseases through proper hygiene and regular, twice yearly, checkups for professional cleaning and evaluation. Conditions in the oral cavity may be indicative of systemic diseases such as osteoporosis, diabetes, orÂ cancer. Many studies have also shown that gum disease is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, andÂ preterm birth.
There are nine dental specialties:
Public health dentistry, Endodontics and conservative dentistry, Oral pathology, Oral and maxillofacial surgery, Orthodontics and dentofacial Orthopedics, Pediatric dentistrry Periodontics, Prosthodontics, and Oral medicine and radiology.
