Dentistry is a branch of medicine that deals with the study, diagnosis, prevention and 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. The field of dentistry or dental medicine is not limited to teeth but includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex including the temporomandibular joint and other supporting, muscular, lymphatic, nervous, vascular, and anatomical structures.

Endodontics is the branch of dentistry concerning dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of a tooth. Some of the endodontic procedures include root canal treatment, endodontic surgery and special procedures to save teeth after traumatic dental injuries. Endodontists are experts at managing a wide array of complex endodontic problems efficiently. Advanced technologies and specialized techniques used by endodontists give them a very accurate view of the inside of the tooth and allow them to treat the tooth quickly and comfortably.

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that treats malocclusion, a condition in which the teeth are not correctly positioned when the mouth is closed. Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all your teeth.

Prosthodontics is the dental specialty primarily concerned with the restoration and replacement of lost or damaged teeth. Sometimes called the “architects of the smile,” prosthodontists are highly trained specialists with a unique understanding of all the elements that go into a beautiful, functional and natural-looking smile—not just the teeth, but also the gums, lips, and facial features. When it comes to planning and carrying out a full-scale smile makeover, a team of dental professionals is often required; many times, that team is captained by a prosthodontist.

Periodontics is the dental specialty focusing exclusively in the inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gingiva (gums), alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament. Periodontists treat cases ranging from mild gingivitis to more severe periodontitis, such as scaling and root planing (the cleaning of infected root surfaces), root surface debridement (the removal of damaged tissue), and regenerative procedures (the reversal of lost bone and tissue). When necessary, periodontists can also perform surgical procedures for patients with severe gum disease.

Dental problems like bad breath, gum disease, yellow teeth can occur due to bad oral hygiene but they can also be prevented very easily by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, eating properly and regular dental check-ups.  The basics of good dental hygiene are taught from a very early age. Similarly, knowledge on common dental problemsand their causes is also very important as they can a go a long way in prevention.

  • Tooth Decay
  • Gingivitis
  • Tooth Sensitivity
  • Oral Cancer

Dental treatments are carried out to treat dental problems. Everyone, including children, should visit the dentist for dental check-up at least once every six months. Scaling and cleaning involves the removal of built-up debris from the teeth while Sealants protect teeth from decay. Any tooth that has deep grooves or fissures can be treated, but the most commonly treated teeth are the molars and premolars.

3D Virtual Imaging is one of the most significant tools for orthodontists to evaluate and record size and form of craniofacial structures. Orthodontists regularly use 2-dimensional (2D) static imaging procedures, but deepness of structures cannot be acquired and restricted with 2D imaging. Three-dimensional (3D) imaging has been developed in the early of 1990's and has gained a prized place in dentistry, particularly in orthodontics. In 3D diagnostic imaging, a series of anatomical records is gathered using certain technical equipment, processed by a computer and later presented on a 2D monitor to present the illusion of deepness.

Surgery of the teeth and jaw bones to artificially modify the dentition is called the dental surgery. However, dental medicine isn’t only about fixing your teeth but also covers other aspects of craniofacial complex, such as the temperomandibular structure and other supporting structures. In turn, dental surgery procedures don’t only cover root canals and removal of wisdom teeth that are impacted.

The term "Restorative Dentistry" is the integrated management of oral health problems and restoring of the mouth to a functional and Esthetic state. Many of the procedures are also covered by the dental specialty of prosthodontic dentistry, including fillings, veneers, crowns, bridges, full and partial dentures and dental implants. The objective of restorative dentistry is to work along with dental and surgical specialists to deal with complex treatments like hypodontia, cleft lip, traumatic injuries, oral cancer, etc.

The word Cosmetic Dentistry is used to refer to any dental work that enhances the appearance of teeth, gums as well as gingiva. It principally concentrates on improvement dental aesthetics in shading, position, shape, size, arrangement and general smile appearance. Many dental specialists refer to themselves as "cosmetic dentists". Cosmetic dentistry procedures are used for the aesthetic appearance of the teeth ie. Tooth colored fillings, fractured teeth and proper alignment of teeth.

The proper handling, examination and evaluation of dental evidence which will be then presented in the interest of justice is termed as Forensic dentistry. The evidence that may be derived from teeth is the age and identification of the person to whom the teeth belong. This is done using dental records including radiographs, ante-mortem and post-mortem photographs and DNA.

Oral and maxillofacial surgery includes diagnosis, surgery and treatment of defects, injuries and diseases mainly in the oral hard and soft tissues, head, neck, face and maxillofacial region i.e. jaws and face. Functions of an oral and maxillofacial surgeon may include dental replacements, jaw, oral and facial tumor diagnosis and removal, jaw and facial bone alignment, jaw reconstruction, etc. Technology in the field of radiology is changing so quickly that practitioners like oral and maxillofacial radiologists are pioneers in a constantly evolving field of practice. It’s an exciting and growing specialty for dental students to consider. Recent innovations in oral and maxillofacial surgeryinclude trans-oral robotic surgery and titanium miniplates in the field of guided maxillofacial surgery.

Unusual eating habits and poor oral hygiene dental problem in children is very common in recent years. Pediatric dentists deal with dental health of children; to care child’s teeth, gums and mouth throughout the various stages of childhood. To provide treatment, a paediatric dentist must understand the specific dental and behavioural needs of a paediatric patient as they hold different dentition than adults. A dental visit is essential within six months after the presence of the first tooth, this aid in the detection of the early stages of tooth decay and early detection helps to prevent and treat at early stages.
