What is dentistry?
Dentistry is a medical specialty aimed to study and treat any disease that occurs in the oral cavity. Dentists consider the problems associated not only with the teeth themselves but also with the diseases of the tissues that surround the teeth and the mucous membrane of the oral cavity.
Moreover, dentistry is not only the treatment or removal of teeth but also any preventive measures to preserve dentition.
Why do thousands of patients treat their teeth overseas?
Nearly 4 billion people worldwide have teeth and oral cavity diseases according to the World Health Organization (WHO). It is also known that the treatment of dental diseases is one of the four most expensive medical services. That’s why people began to look for places where they can get a healthy smile at a lower price.
Cheap dental care is the primary reason why Europeans, Americans, Canadians, British, Arabs, and residents of other countries where treatment is expensive and is not covered by insurance, treat their teeth in other countries.
Among the countries providing low-cost dental treatments are Thailand, Turkey, Mexico, India, Hungary, and Poland. Here you can get high-quality service and save up to 75%.
What are the main dental specialties in Malaysia?

What are the most popular dental procedures?
It is the most common dental procedure over the globe. Regular visits to the dentist, timely examination and dental treatment can prevent the disease at the initial stage and save nerves, time, and money for dental treatment in the future.
Teeth whitening allows you to get a snow-white smile quickly, painlessly, and effectively. The most popular in-office whitening method is laser teeth whitening that helps get a perfect smile in 1.5-2 hours.
Nowadays, it is possible to correct the bite at any age. There are several methods: from metal braces to invisible silicone mouth guards. Correction of the bite lasts from six months to one and a half years, an effective result, and an excellent smile are guaranteed.
Almost everyone dreams of a beautiful Hollywood smile. Unfortunately, not always an ideal snow-white smile can be obtained only with the help of whitening. In such a situation, to create a dream smile, it is enough to install veneers or lumineers — special ceramic teeth overlays that give a snow-white color, eliminate defects, and spaces between teeth.
There are situations when all teeth are lost, or the remaining ones can no longer be cured. In this case, dentists perform dental implantation, which allows you to restore the chewing function of the teeth and return to a common lifestyle.
The most widespread methods of dental implantation are:
Depending on the method, the treatment may last up to six months.
What are the main signs you have problems with the teeth?
Dental diseases are of two main types according to the signs of ailment detection:
- objective — the signs of dental diseases that are identified by a dentist during the examination. Afflictions may be obvious and the doctor can detect them immediately during the initial examination. There are also hidden abnormalities revealed during a complete diagnosis of the oral cavity
- subjective — a patient speaks about the symptoms and complaints; a dentist examines the dentition and confirms the patient’s complaint immediately or makes the additional diagnosis.
What are the main steps to detect dental affliction?
To determine the teeth condition, dentists usually have three main steps:
- oral interview and visual examination of the patient
- oral cavity inspection using special instruments and x-rays
- complete teeth diagnosis and revealing the dental diseases (if any).
If the tooth ailment is detected, the dentist prescribes treatment. Depending on the disease type, the patient may be referred to other dental specialists.
