Many dental procedures can be completed at a general dentistry office. However, sometimes, your general dentist will refer you to a specialist. At Mirelez Wellness Dental, we work with you to create customized treatment plans for your oral health needs.
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 practicing 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 have advanced training in procedures involving crowns, dental implants, bridges, veneers, inlays, and partial or complete dentures.
Infants, young children and teenagers have different dental needs than adults. Pediatric dentists undergo additional training in the diagnosis and treatment of dental diseases affecting our youngest populations.
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.
