dentistry
Dentistry is a branch of medicine concerned with the study, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of diseases of the mouth, face, jaws, teeth and surrounding tissues, and their prevention. It is divided into many specialties. The practitioner of this profession is called a dentist. Although dentistry is primarily associated in the mind of the general public with the teeth, its field is not limited to them, but includes other aspects of the craniofacial complex, including the temporomandibular structures and other supporting structures. Dentistry is often understood to include the now largely obsolete medical specialty, stomatology (the study of the mouth and its disorders and diseases), which is why both terms are interchanged in certain regions. Dental treatments are performed by a dental team that often consists of a dentist and dental assistants, including a dental assistant, a dental hygienist, a dental technician, and a dental therapist. Most dentists practice the profession in private clinics (primary health care clinics), dental hospitals, or within facilities that provide specialized dental care, such as prisons, military bases, and others. The history of dentistry is as old as humanity and civilizations, and the oldest evidence dates back to 7000 BC. Some remains from the Indus Valley Civilization (c. 3300 BC) show evidence of excavated teeth dating back 9,000 years. It is also believed that dental surgery was the first specialty that appeared in the field of medicine. convention The term dentistry is derived in Arabic from the word dental treatment, and the tooth (feminine) is a piece of bone that grows in the jaw of humans and some animals. Dentistry is a branch of medicine concerned with the treatment and care of teeth. In the English language, dentistry comes from the word dentist, which comes from the French dentiste. The term odontology is also used for scientific studies related to teeth, a term descended from the ancient Greek (ὀδούς - odoús) meaning tooth, which is the study of dental structures and the development of teeth and the abnormalities that affect them.
