Following are some of the most common dental specialties:
Endodontists specialize in root canal therapy and other procedures involving the root and surrounding parts of the tooth.
Periodontists treat the conditions affecting gum tissue and the bone surrounding the teeth. If you have gingivitis or more advanced periodontal disease, you may be referred to a periodontist.
Repairing damaged teeth and replacing lost teeth is called ‘restorative dentistry’. Prosthodontists are specially trained in procedures involving crowns, dental implants, bridges, veneers, inlays, and partial or complete dentures.
Infants, young children and teenagers all have different dental needs. Pediatric Dentists undergo additional training in the diagnosis and treatment of dental diseases affecting the youngest population.
Oral surgeons perform surgical procedures involving the teeth, mouth and jaw. These include dental implants, surgery to repair damage due to injury, tumor surgery, and cleft lip and palate reconstruction.
