What is dentistry?

Dentistry is concerned with your dental health. It includes the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease and disfigurement in your mouth and oral area. It deals with diseases of your teeth, gums, and soft tissue of the mouth as well as the treatment and correction of jaw malformation, teeth misalignment, and birth conditions of the oral cavity such as cleft palate.

In addition to general practice, there are specific specialties. Examples of dental specialties include:

  • Orthodontics – uses braces and corrective treatments to straighten misaligned or overcrowded teeth

  • Cosmetic dentistry - treatments designed to enhance your facial appearance such as veneers, crowns, implants, white fillings, composite bonding, teeth whitening, teeth straightening and gum contouring.
