So dentists these days are assuming very important roles in the whole health care system. Dentists help in preventing and treating diseases related to the oral cavity, including the floor of the oral cavity, the roof of the mouth, teeth , gums, tongue etc. He can actually fashion or craft our teeth in such a way that we can get that dimpled or gummy smile. Surgical, medical and other forms of treatment too are a part of dentistry as they are with other medical branches.
