Hello, Wandana, thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

General practitioners have the ability to examine the oral cavity in general, but if the complaints and examination results point to abnormalities of the teeth, gums, and supporting structures, the general practitioner will advise you to go to the dentist for further examination and given appropriate therapy. Each doctor has their own competence and area of ‚Äč‚Äčexpertise, while teeth, gums, and their supporting structures are dentists' areas of expertise. Dentists master procedures that repair teeth, gums, jaw, which are not mastered by general practitioners.

Dentists not only provide care that includes teeth and gums, but also pay attention to aspects related to them such as the jaw, tongue, salivary glands, neck, head nerves, head muscles, and surrounding areas. The dentist can see signs of abnormalities in the oral cavity that may indicate other diseases in the body.

Here is an interesting article about "getting to know a dentist" and "still afraid to go to the dentist?" which can be read to add information.

That's all, hopefully it's useful.

Greetings, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
