What is a Dentist's Role?

One of the most essential roles of a dentist is encouraging proper dental hygiene. This prevents issues in the mouth and elsewhere in the body. Additionally, a dentist diagnoses and treats issues with the gums, teeth, and mouth. When performing dental operations, dentists utilise current technology and equipment such as X-ray machines, lasers, drills, brushes, scalpels, and other medical instruments. Additionally, they wear gloves, masks, and safety glasses to prevent the transmission of germs and pathogens.

A dentist is a doctor, hence their educational route is comparable to that of a medical doctor. The first stage is to complete a bachelor of science degree programme in a relevant discipline such as biology, chemistry, health, or mathematics. You must then take a dental admissions exam in order to apply to dental schools. The training procedure comprises: Two years of biomedical science study are followed by two years of clinical practise. Obtaining a licence to practise dentistry by completing written and practical tests. Depending on the area of speciality, dentists may be required to undergo a one- to three-year postgraduate residency.

Oral surgeon

Oral and maxillofacial surgeons get specialised training to treat a wide range of facial, mouth, and jaw disorders. When an issue goes beyond the purview of a general dentist's skill, patients are often referred to an oral surgeon. Oral surgeons undertake basic and sophisticated tooth extractions, including the extraction of wisdom teeth. Additionally, they treat accident victims who require reconstructive dental surgery. Oral surgeons can furthermore undertake biopsies of soft tissue, tumour excision, jaw realignment surgery, soft tissue healing, and implant placement.

Due to the focus of oral and maxillofacial education on the face, mouth, and jaw, these surgeons are masters at diagnosing and treating complicated medical disorders affecting these tissues.

Wisdom tooth extractions


An orthodontist is a certified dentist who has also had further training in orthodontics.

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry dealing with the correction of misaligned teeth and jaws. Typically, this is accomplished using braces, which now exist in a variety of forms, such as invisible lingual braces and Invisalign clear aligners. In addition to improving the aesthetics of your smile, orthodontic treatment may also enhance the functioning and health of your teeth.

Despite its connection with adolescents, anybody can benefit from braces, and orthodontists are also treating a growing number of adults as "invisible" braces gain popularity.

What education does an orthodontist receive?
In the United Kingdom, it takes five years to qualify as a dentist, and an additional three years to become a specialist in orthodontics. There is intense competition for orthodontic training positions, and applicants must demonstrate experience in a variety of specialties and with challenging situations.

Full-time specialist orthodontic training is a combination of theory and practise. At the conclusion of the course, students will get a Certificate of Completion of Specialist Training and will be eligible to register with the General Dental Council as specialist orthodontists.

Dental clinic

A dental clinic is a place where a dentist performs oral health treatments and dental procedures. Typically, a single room has all the required dental instruments and equipment. A dental clinic is a component of a dental office, and it is one of the most essential components since exams and treatments cannot occur without it.

Given that a dental office is also a company, it is the location where the dentist and staff handle financial and administrative affairs. There are designated locations within the office where the administrative staff undertakes the following daily tasks:

  • Insurance claims
  • Accounts receivable and payable
  • Medical records

Dental clinics are not often situated in dental offices. Larger health-related organisations, such as hospitals or government offices, may offer dentistry clinics to serve those in need or with limited financial resources. As part of their education, dental schools may include clinics where students treat patients under the observation of their lecturers.

Cosmetic dentist

Cosmetic dentistry focuses on enhancing your smile's look and attractiveness. Whitening, tooth bonding, and veneers are common cosmetic dentistry procedures.

What is the difference between general and aesthetic dentistry?
A general dentist is a main dental care practitioner. They provide both preventive and restorative dentistry services, such as tooth cleanings, dental fillings, crowns, and bridges. The majority of dental procedures restore both health and attractiveness. A cosmetic dentist, on the other hand, concentrates on improving your smile. They provide procedures designed to enhance the look of your teeth and gums.

Dental hygienist

A qualified dental hygienist or oral hygienist is registered with GDC. Registered dental hygienists must obtain either an associate's or bachelor's degree in dental hygiene from an authorised college or university before taking the clinical and written board tests. Once registered, hygienists are primary healthcare professionals who offer comprehensive oral health treatment alone or in collaboration with dentists and other dental experts. They have specialised training and instruction in the prevention and treatment of several oral illnesses.

There is a specific range of clinical treatments that dental hygienists do for their patients. They evaluate a patient's condition in order to provide individualised preventative and educational treatments to promote and maintain oral health. A dental hygienist's primary responsibility is to administer periodontal therapy to patients with periodontal disease. This includes periodontal charting, periodontal debridement (scaling and root planing), prophylaxis (disease prevention), and periodontal maintenance operations. The employment of therapeutic procedures aids patients in the management of oral illness, while individualised treatment regimens highlight the relevance of behavioural modifications. Certain dental hygienists are authorised to give local anaesthetic and do dental radiography.  Additionally, dental hygienists are the leading source for oral cancer detection and prevention. Hygienists may also conduct intraoral radiographs, place dental sealants, dispense topical fluoride, and provide patient-specific oral hygiene teaching.

Under this category we provide Dental Hygiene Treatments

Dental radiology

Dental X-rays enable dentists to detect disorders of the teeth and surrounding tissue that cannot be detected with a standard oral exam. Additionally, they assist the dentist in detecting and treating oral issues early on, which may save you money, undue agony, and perhaps your life.

Dental X-rays in adults can be used to:

  • Show regions of decay that may not be detectable during an oral examination, particularly tiny areas of decay between teeth.
  • Identify degradation underlying an existing restoration.
  • Expose the bone loss caused by gum disease.
  • Aid in the preparation of tooth implants, braces, dentures, and other dental operations by revealing abnormalities in the bone or root canal caused by infection.
  • Expose an abscess (an infection at the root of a tooth or between the gum and a tooth)

Under this category we provide:

Panoramic X-ray
Small X-ray (Intra-Oral X-ray)

Dental implants provider

Dental implant surgery is a treatment that replaces tooth roots with metal, screw-like posts and replaces damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that closely resemble natural teeth in appearance and function. Dental implant surgery can provide a pleasant alternative to ill-fitting dentures or bridgework, as well as an option when a lack of natural tooth roots prevents the construction of dentures or bridgework.

The manner in which dental implant surgery is conducted is determined by the kind of implant and the health of the jawbone. Surgical dental implant placement may entail many procedures. The primary advantage of implants is the firm support they provide for your new teeth, which requires the bone to mend securely around the implant. Due to the necessity of time for bone regeneration, this process might take many months.

All-On-4 Implant (Both Arches)

Dental implants periodontist

It may be challenging to choose where to have dental implants. Some folks may choose oral surgeons to undertake the surgery, while others may prefer dentists. Additionally, periodontists are qualified to do dental implant operations.

Endosteal (i.e., in the bone) and subperiosteal dental implants are available (i.e., on the bone). Endosteal implants are the most often utilised form of dental implant. These implants consist of cylinders, blades, and screws surgically placed into the jawbone. Endosteal implants are primarily utilised as a substitute for dentures or bridges in patients with removable prostheses. Subperiosteal implants are implants put on the jaw that are held in place by posts that push into the gum. Subperiosteal implants are often utilised for individuals who cannot wear traditional dentures and have low bone height.

Periodontists are professionals who have acquired specialised training in implant dentistry. Periodontists are specially trained to guarantee that dental implant operations are painless and successful. Periodontists are specially trained to work with the gums and bones that make up the mouth. Bones and gums are the unique oral structures that influence implant placement. Additionally, periodontists are very adept in working with implants before and after the treatment.
