WHAT DOES ODONTOLOGY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

odontology

Dentistry

Dentistry is the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders and conditions of the oral cavity, especially the teeth, and to an extent related conditions in the maxillofacial area. Dentistry can be considered a branch of medicine as a whole, although it is also concerned with cosmesis. Dentistry is widely considered important for overall health. Dental treatment is carried out by the dental team, which often consists of a dentist and dental auxiliaries. Most dentists work in private practices, although some work in hospitals and institutions. The history of dentistry is almost as ancient as the history of humanity and civilization, with the earliest evidence dating from 7000BC. It is thought that dental surgery was the first specialization from medicine.
