The dentistry field is categorized into several different specializations, including orthodontics, endodontics, pediatrics and many, many others. Specialists study a large amount of information about one or a few particular topics of dentistry, but not the entire dentistry field, like general dentists do. For example, orthodontists belong in the dentistry field, but they specialize in the diagnosis, prevention and correction of misaligned teeth. General dentists, however, do not study a specific topic in the dentistry field. A general dentist normally handles a variety of different dental services, such as teeth cleanings, fluoride treatments, x-rays, cavity fillings and root canals. If a patient needs additional assessments outside of a general dentist’s broad range of knowledge and services, he or she is normally referred to a specialist who has studied the topic or area in need of evaluation.
