Dentists will diagnose and treat problems that occur in the mouths, teeth, and gums of the patients they oversee. Some of these treatments include filling cavities, removing decay from teeth, straightening teeth, place sealants, give whitening treatments, write prescriptions, examine x-rays, and administer anesthetics during procedures.

Fluoridation is the best and most effective way to provide fluoride’s dental health benefits to everyone in our community, including children and adults – especially seniors. Nearly every large city and more than 195 million Americans receive the dental health benefits of fluoridation. In communities with fluoridated water, rates of dental disease are dramatically lower, and recent research links improved dental health to better overall health. In other words, healthy teeth mean a healthier you. Based on 65 years of scientific research, fluoridation is regarded by experts as one of the most effective public health achievements in the last 100
In designing an appropriate method for my investigation, I consulted a number of local dentists, orthodontists, and dental professors for information relevant to this study. In shaping my experiment, I reviewed and looked through several higher-level or graduate-level studies done on this same topic. The largest obstacle I needed to overcome with this experiment was finding the appropriate teeth to do my experiment on. It was originally planned that I would use human extracted teeth, which I would acquire through a local orthodontist, but after many meetings with a dental professor I found that I would not be completely sure if my procedure would call for more teeth until I actually proceeded to do my experiment. An orthodontist may not wish
Introduction Gingivitis is the inflammation of the gingiva. Plaque is a requirement for the development of gingivitis (Informational Paper, 1999). Periodontitis is a polymicrobial disease in which disease expression involves intricate interactions of the plaque biofilm with the host inflammatory response and subsequent alterations in bone and connective tissue metabolism (Kornman, 2008)1. Although mechanical plaque control methods have the potential to maintain adequate levels of oral hygiene, clinical experience and population-based studies have shown that such methods are not being employed as accurately as they should be by a large number of people. Therefore, several chemotherapeutic agents have been developed to control bacterial plaque,
 Based on researches, for the past three decades, increasing cardiovascular diseases has been sought out due to the impact of oral hygiene.  Cardiovascular diseases is the leading cause of death throughout the nations of the world and the main
Introduction: Low-income populations have a higher prevalence of oral diseases and often experience financial as well as other barriers to dental services.1 Access to health care is limited in rural communities.2,3 Compared to urban and suburban communities, rural communities have relatively few dentists.4,5 As a result, these groups often are either forced or chose to use alternative strategies, forgo treatment, and/or use or self-care remedies for relief of dental pain. Self-care is one of the means by which such people can actively engage in managing their oral health problems without access to professional care.1,6 Self-care is the component of health self-management that includes behaviors undertaken to enhance health, prevent disease, limit illness, or restore health.7 They derive from the individual’s knowledge and skills.8 Gilbert et al. explored dental self-care behaviors among problem-oriented dental attenders and regular dental attenders.
Dentistry has much to offer law enforcement in the detection and solution of crime or in civil proceedings. Forensic dental fieldwork requires an interdisciplinary knowledge of dental science. Most often the role of the forensic odontologist is to establish a person 's identity. Teeth, with their physiologic variations, pathoses and effects of therapy, record information that remains throughout life and beyond. Dental professionals have a major role to play in keeping accurate dental records and providing all necessary information so that legal authorities may recognize malpractice, negligence, fraud or abuse, and identify unknown humans, through post-mortem and ante-mortem comparison of records.83,84,85 As estimation of age in the adult human
Oral diseases have a high prevalence and incidence around the world, a major public health concern, especially in developing countries. Oral hygiene status can determine the pattern of tooth loss through periodontitis and dental caries 24, 32. Oral health is closely related to the general well-being of people 1. Tooth loss by periodontal disease can occur gradually and progressively through loss of bone structure that supports the teeth by inflammation of the gingival and periodontal tissues 2, 25. After periodontal diseases, dental caries is the second major cause of tooth loss 3.
Oral health is an important part of the general health and important factor that impacts an individual quality of life (DDF, 2005). Individuals with an increased concern about their facial appearance have lower quality of life standards and tend to isolate themselves from the society and any social interaction ( Oral health in America : a report of general surgery ,2000) .the result the consequence oral health may have huge impact on physical , social , and psychological wellbeing of a person (Locker et al,2004). The oral health wellbeing can be reflected on the general health and the most common example is the dental caries and malocclusion respectively.
First, due to limited number of studies provide data on the effectiveness of ﬂossing and toothbrushing compared to toothbrushing alone. Many studies compare ﬂoss with another interdental aid (2, 16–22). Warren et al. wrote that studies that have compared ﬂossing with toothbrushing have found that their combined use produces no clear beneﬁt. In additon, it is very difficult to dissect the marginal, additive effect of flossing.
