What is Dentistry?
Dentistry is a branch of medicine that deals with diseases and conditions of the oral cavity and maxillofacial area. Most dentistry work is to prevent or treat oral diseases such as tooth cavities and periodontal (gum) disease. Dentists are also responsible for treatments such as root canals, scaling, and designing dentures. Dentists can also prescribe certain medications such as antibiotics, fluorides, and sedatives, which they may also use in their treatments.
Dentists can specialize in several areas such as endodontics, oral and maxillofacial pathology, oral surgery, orthodontics, and periodontics.
Dentistry is a branch of medicine and is similar to surgery and some aspects of otolaryngology. It is also related to anatomy and physiology.
