Dentistry can be explained as a branch of medicine that consists of examining and diagnosing a patient to provide prevention and treatment of oral conditions and diseases. Often, dentistry is correlated with teeth, but dentistry includes a far wider variety of oral cavity disorders. Dental science is very critical to a person’s overall health and well-being. A dental team usually consists of the head dentist as well as dental assistants, hygienists and dental technicians.
The goal of all dental treatments is to prevent tooth decay and periodontal disease (gum disease). Dentists often restore and extract teeth, to prevent long term damage to the oral cavity. These treatments include root planning and endodontic root canal treatment.

Cerritos Cosmetic Dentistry
Dental School prepares all dentists to treat most all dental problems. Dentists are trained to carry out treatments such as restorative (fillings, crowns, bridges), prosthetic (dentures), endodontic (root canal) therapy, periodontal (gum) therapy, and extraction of teeth, as well as performing examinations, radiographs (x-rays) and diagnosis. Dental responsibilities include, but are not limited to, diagnosing oral diseases, promoting oral health and disease prevention, examining x-rays, providing safe administration of anesthetics, creating treatment plans and performing surgical procedures on the teeth, bones and soft tissue of mouth.
Dentists area of expertise are not only for teeth and gums but all muscles of the head, neck and jaw, as well as the tongue, salivary glands, nervous system of the head and neck and other areas. Dentists are trained to also look for lumps, swellings, discolorations, ulcers or any abnormalities. In many cases, biopsies, diagnostic tests and screening tests must be conducted to gain a better overview of patient’s current condition.
It’s very important not to ignore dental problems as it can jeopardize your hygiene and health. If ignored, dental negligence can lead to a slew of problems. Some of these problems include halitosis, bleeding gums, enamel erosion, toothaches, dry mouth, loss of teeth, mouth sores and burning sensations. Halitosis is the clinical term for bad breath. About 90 percent of the time, the source of halitosis is the mouth itself. Halitosis is caused by a biofilm of bacteria in your mouth, usually underneath the tongue. Halitosis is often an early sign of gum disease. If the halitosis continues, it’s important you contact Bloomfield Dental to prevent this from turning into gum disease. Are your gums bleeding? Bleeding gums are one of the first signs of gum disease. The swelling of the gums is usually due to a buildup of plaque on your teeth. Gingivitis is a very common oral problem, but if not taken care of, can eventually turn into a more serious form of gum disease.
Call Bloomfield Dental Center
Bloomfield Dental will fix this problem for you, but you better call us soon as foregoing the problem will make you more susceptible to more advanced stages of gum disease. Bleeding gums can also be a consequence of periodontitis, the inflammatory disease of the gums. It’s very important that you contact Bloomfield Dental immediately to treat periodontitis as it can lead to the loss of bone tissue around the teeth. This can eventually lead to total teeth loss. Another very common problem we treat at Bloomfield Dental is enamel erosion. Enamel erosion takes place when acids secreted by bacteria in the mouth eat away at your enamel, making you far more inclined to get cavities and other problems. If left untreated, this process of enamel erosion can destroy all your teeth.
That’s why it’s important that you schedule an appointment with Bloomfield Dental so that we can fill these cavities and educate you on preventative measures when dealing with dental hygiene. Toothaches are another common problem amongst patients with advanced tooth decay. Whatever the cause of the toothache, it’s important that you contact Bloomfield Dental so that we can diagnose your current dental situation. If left untreated for long periods, gum disease can cause direct tooth loss. Bloomfield Dental is dedicated in preventing any form of tooth loss by first diagnosing the problem, and then coming up with a detailed plan for treatment.
