Dentistry has undergone many changes over the years. Over time, dentists have improved their methodology to better suit the needs of patients. With AI, dentistry can be further optimized to provide a more streamlined and personalized experience for patients.
The future of dentistry looks promising with AI assists in terms of diagnosis and treatment plans. This is possible due to access to large amounts of data that allows machine learning algorithms to make predictions.
Dentistry is a dental specialty that deals with the study, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases of teeth and related oral structures.
Dental treatment is a medical procedure to help dental problems, like tooth decay, cavities and dental injuries. Dental treatments are performed by dentists or oral surgeons.
Dentists perform dental treatment to fix problems caused by tooth decay, cavities or injuries. They also help people who have difficulty eating because of missing teeth or other oral problems. Dentists can repair teeth that are damaged from trauma such as a car accident or sports injury.
Oral surgeons also perform dental treatments to fix problems caused by tooth decay, cavities or injuries but they also extract teeth and do reconstructive procedures on the mouth and jawbone in case of cancer surgery or trauma.
Dental surgeons are part of the dental health industry. They are responsible for diagnosing, treating and preventing oral diseases. Before a dental surgeon can start their job, they need to complete an undergraduate degree in dentistry followed by a four-year graduate degree in dentistry. Then they must register with the state boards of dentistry and take part in a residency program before finally becoming licensed.
