General Dentistry and its Branches

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.


 

Doctors who practice dentistry are known as dentists. Dentists who do not have a specialization in front of their title are ‘General Dentists.’ Many people who study dentistry opt to concentrate on one area—such as Orthodontics, Endodontics, Proshodontics or Pediatrics. These dentists narrow the focus of their dental practices to that one particular specialty—or, they join another dental practice that specializes in that particular area.General dentistry includes dental examination, teeth cleaning (scaling), restoration (filling) of decayed teeth, extraction of tooth, Dental x-ray taking etc.
