The Role of a Dentist
A Dentist’s primary function is to treat and prevent problems such as tooth decay and gum diseases. Many patients are unaware that their teeth may be at risk of becoming decayed. A dentist can often detect the problem early and treat it. Most dentists are also preventative physicians who can detect early signs of gum diseases and correct poor hygiene. A dental assistant can also be very important. A root canal treatment may be necessary for poor oral hygiene.
