What is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (OMS)?

Dentists who specialize in surgery of the mouth, face, and jaws are known as oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Surgeons complete four to seven years of hospital-based surgical and medical training after four years of dental school, preparing them to perform a wide range of treatments, including all forms of surgery of both the bones and soft tissues of the face, mouth, and neck.

What is a Periodontist?

Periodontists are dentists who specialize in periodontal (gum) disease diagnosis and treatment. They have had considerable training, including two years of further study after graduating from dentistry school. As experts, they commit their time, energy, and knowledge to assisting patients with gum care. A periodontist is one of eight dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association.

Why is your dentist referring you to a Periodontist?

Your dentist has determined that your gums necessitate particular care. The periodontist and dentist collaborate to provide you with the best possible care. They will combine their knowledge to offer the best treatment option for you while keeping each other updated on your progress. Your dentist shows a significant commitment to your dental health by referring you to a specialist.

What is an Endodontist?

Endodontists evaluate, diagnose, and treat diseases and destructive processes, such as injuries and abnormalities of tooth pulps and periapical tissues. Endodontists examine patients and interpret radiographs and pulp tests to detect pulp vitality and the status of the periapical tissue. They assess their results and recommend a course of treatment to avoid tooth loss.

What is a Prosthodontist?

The prosthodontist examines and diagnoses problems caused by tooth loss and loss of supporting structures. They design and carry out treatment programs for the fabrication of corrective prostheses to restore proper function and aesthetics of the mouth, face, and jaw.

What is a Pediatric Dentist?

A pediatric dentist receives at least two years of additional training after graduating from dental school. The additional training focuses on managing and treating a kid’s developing teeth, child behavior, physical growth and development, and the unique needs of children’s dentistry. Although either type of dentist can satisfy your child’s oral health care needs, a pediatric dentist, his or her staff, and even the office decor are all tailored to care for and relax youngsters. If your child has specific needs, he or she should see a pediatric dentist.

What is an Orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a specialist who diagnoses and treats abnormalities with the mouth, teeth, and jaw. An orthodontist straightens a person’s teeth and corrects the way the jaws line up by using braces, retainers, and other devices.

Orthodontists treat children for several problems, including crowded or overlapping teeth, as well as jaw growth and tooth development problems. Tooth decay, premature dental loss, accidents, or behaviors such as thumb sucking can all contribute to these tooth and jaw disorders. These issues may also be hereditary or genetic.


Your dentist or one of your parents may suggest that you visit an orthodontist if they see a problem with your teeth or jaws. A child who is unhappy with the appearance of his or her teeth may request to see an orthodontist.
