Dental Care

Types of Dental Treatment

Popular dental treatment available overseas includes:

  • Bleaching
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Dental implant
  • Gum treatment and grafts
  • Metalfree ceramic crown
  • Metalfree restoration
  • Oral surgery
  • Orthodontics
  • Root canal
  • Smile designing
  • Veneers

When you travel for dental treatment, it is important to be as clear as possible about what you want and research the facility to make sure that they can provide it. The easiest way to do this is to email or call them. This is especially true if you want specialized treatment. In addition to general dentistry, there are nine dental specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. Each of these requires two to six years of residency training after dental school.
The specialties are:

  • Endodontics (root canal therapy)
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Pathology (diagnosis of diseases of the jaw, face, and mouth)
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (imaging of the mouth region by xray, CT, MRI, etc.)
  • Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery (extractions and facial surgery)
  • Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopaedics (straightening of teeth)
  • Pedodontics (dentistry for children)
  • Periodontics (treatment of gum disease)
  • Prosthodontics (dentures, bridges, and implants)
  • Dental Public Health (dental epidemiology and social health)
