The dentist is a doctor who is specially trained to care for teeth. He or she diagnoses and treats problems with teeth and tissues in the mouth, along with giving advice and administering care to help prevent future problems. Dentists repair fractured teeth, fill cavities, remove tooth decay, straighten teeth, place sealants, whiten patient's teeth, and educate on proper oral hygiene.
Dentists use different equipment and technologies to do their job, such as laser and digital scanners, x-ray machines, drills, mouth mirrors, probes, forceps, brushes, and scalpels. They also must diagnose what is going on with a patient's mouth so they read x-rays as well and look for potential jaw problems, gum disease, or cavities.
