Most people see a general dentist for routine cleanings, exams, and the occasional filling; but sometimes, you need more than standard dental care. In cases like this, several types of dental specialists can fill a role in oral care. Dental specialists receive additional training in a niche specialty, above and beyond their general dentistry degree. Searching for specialist dental services in New York? Contact dntl bar today by calling 1-866-DNTL-BAR or book an appointment online.

what are specialty dental services?

Most people know what to expect from their general dentist. After all, they probably have regular dental checkups scheduled to manage their oral health. But what do dental specialists offer? They primarily focus on performing specific procedures related to their specialized training. General dentists sometimes refer their patients to dental specialists for complex procedures.

While a general dentist can perform most of the same procedures a dental specialist does, sometimes it can be ideal for a patient to rely on a dental specialist’s training and experience. The complexity of a procedure or even the patient’s overall state of health could be better suited to the expertise of a specialist. 

what are the different types of dental specialists?


This branch of dentistry is concerned with the dental pulp, the soft tissue between the tooth’s outer enamel and the dentin. An endodontist has specific training that allows them to perform root canal therapy well. Therefore, this dental specialist can perform complex root canal treatments and other related dental procedures, often with better results than a general dentist.


An orthodontist is a dentist that has completed four years of dental school and two to three years of residency training accredited by the American Dental Association (ADA) of Advanced Education in Orthodontics. Orthodontists specialize in correcting and preventing irregularities of teeth, bite, and jaw—as well as jaw disorders and facial abnormalities. An orthodontist straightens teeth and bites with bands, braces, wires, and other corrective appliances or retainers.

oral surgeons

Oral surgeons are also sometimes called maxillofacial surgeons. These dental specialists are dentists who have completed at least four years of post-graduate surgical hospital residency. Oral surgeons can treat and diagnose defects, diseases, and injuries of the mouth, jaw, teeth, neck, gums, and other soft tissues of the head. They commonly deal with dental implants, facial pain, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunctions, wisdom teeth removals, and the removal of tumors and cysts. Oral surgeons can also perform reconstructive surgery for aesthetic or trauma reasons. 

pediatric specialists

Pediatric dentists complete four years of dental school and two additional years of residency training in dentistry for infants, children, and teens. These dental specialists deal particularly with younger patients, so they often take care to make their patients feel welcomed and comfortable. In many cases, pediatric dentists work closely with pediatricians. Pediatric dentists can find and treat problems relating to missing or crooked teeth and tooth decay.


Periodontics is a branch of dentistry that encompasses the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases of the supporting and surrounding tissues of the teeth, as well as their aesthetics, function, and healthy maintenance. Periodontists treat and diagnose gingivitis and periodontitis. These dental specialists can also perform crown lengthening procedures, deep pocket cleanings, hard tissue recontouring, implant placement, root planing, and soft tissue procedures.


Prosthodontists undergo additional training and certification in restoring and replacing broken teeth with bridges, crowns, or removable prosthetics such as dentures. These dental specialists often work closely with other members of a patient’s oral health care team to replace missing teeth, restore natural teeth, or develop artificial substitutes for damaged oral and maxillofacial tissues. Additionally, prosthodontists also have specialized training in these areas:

  • Post-oral cancer reconstruction
  • Snoring and sleeping disorders
  • TMJ problems
  • Traumatic injuries of the mouth

when should you consider going to a specialist dental office?

General dentists will often refer their patients to dental specialists if they feel that patients need more than what they can offer them. For example, they may refer patients to a periodontist when periodontal disease treatment is required or an orthodontist in cases involving bite problems.
