Pediatric dentistry specializes in treating the oral health of children from infancy to adolescence. Pediatric dentists provide comprehensive dental care, from oral health exams and habit counseling to tooth repair, orthodontic procedures, and care for dental injuries.
Endodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the study and treatment of the inner part of the tooth, or dental pulp. Endodontists are highly trained. In fact, less than three percent of dentists are qualified to perform endodontic procedures. The most common endodontic treatments are root canals and other similar endodontic surgeries.
Periodontists are specialists concerned with the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of periodontal diseases (gum disease, gingivitis, etc.). They are trained to treat oral inflammation and bacterial infections in the gum tissue as well as provide deep cleanings in the form of root scaling and planing.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the correction of malpositioned or misaligned teeth and jaws. Orthodontists correct bite irregularities using dental appliances like braces and clear aligners, or in more extreme cases, with oral surgeries.
TMJ specialists focus on treatment for disorders of the temporomandibular joint which is the tissue that connects your jaw to your skull and is responsible for enabling you to open and close your mouth. TMJ specialists treat pain, discomfort, and on occasion sleep apnea which is associated with TMJ disorders.
