Kit Chow HWS 333 Fall 2009 ‘Wonderful World of Dentistry’ The ‘Wonderful World of Dentistry’ presented by Azalia was fantastic . She has abundant information on the subject . Due to the fact that she specializes in this field of study, it clearly made it easily for her to convey the knowledge on this particular topic to the class . To start off, Azalia told us the basic background on the tooth anatomy and its many stages in development . There are 20 primary baby teeth formed in the 12th week after the baby is born . A grown adult has 32 teeth . We develop 2 sets of teeth in our lives. The first set known as the primary and the second set being the permanent set . Little do I know that we have a pair of teeth by the side of our jaw, which can be the fourth molar or some supernumerary teeth . Wisdom teeth can also grow in between the space of the jawbones as well . I have learned a lot about dentistry after the presentation . Dentistry is important because it is a good way to prevent supernumerary teeth from growing and cause potential problems in our diet . The jobs of dentists are to evaluate, prevent, diagnosis, restore or repair any oral related issues . Sometimes, dentists are also responsible of treatment of disorders such as oral cavity, maxillofacial and damaged gum, etc
