Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Dentists

Dentists are healthcare professionals who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of oral diseases and conditions. They are responsible for maintaining the overall health of the teeth, gums, and other structures of the mouth.

Dentists perform a wide range of procedures, including:

Cleanings: Regular cleanings, also known as dental prophylaxis, help to remove plaque and tartar buildup, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Fillings: Dentists can fill cavities caused by tooth decay, which helps to prevent further damage to the tooth.

Extractions: Dentists can remove teeth that are damaged or decayed beyond repair.

Root canals: Dentists can perform root canal therapy, a procedure used to save a tooth that has become infected or inflamed.

Crowns and bridges: Dentists can place crowns, which are caps that fit over a damaged tooth, and bridges, which are used to replace missing teeth.

Orthodontics: Dentists can provide orthodontic treatment, such as braces, to correct misaligned teeth.

Periodontics: Dentists can also provide treatment for gum diseases, such as gingivitis, periodontitis and other periodontal diseases.

Dentists often work in private practices or dental clinics, and may collaborate with other healthcare professionals such as hygienists and dental assistants to provide comprehensive care for patients. Regular dental checkups are an important part of maintaining good oral health and preventing oral diseases.
