Teeth and Gums

Dentistry

Dentistry is the treatment of diseases and other conditions that affect the teeth and gums, especially the repair and extraction of teeth and the insertion of artificial ones. Dentistry is involved in the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of conditions of the oral cavity, commonly in the dentition but also the oral mucosa, and of adjacent and related structures and tissues, particularly in the maxillofacial (jaw and facial) area. Although primarily associated with teeth among the general public, the field of dentistry or dental medicine is not limited to teeth but includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex including the temperomandibular and other supporting structures.

Some common subspecialties, conditions and procedures include:

  • Endodontics (also called endodontology): Root canal therapy and diseases of the dental pulp and periapical tissues.
  • Geriatric dentistry or Geriodontics: The delivery of dental care to older adults involving the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of problems associated with normal aging and age-related diseases.
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgery (also called oral surgery): Extractions, implants, and surgery of the jaws, mouth and face.
  • Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics: The straightening of teeth and modification of midface and mandibular growth.
  • Prosthodontics (also called prosthetic dentistry): Dentures, bridges and the restoration of implants.
