Despite the similarity with the word stomach, a stomatologist has nothing to do with any specialty related to the stomach. Stomatology is an area of medicine that studies diseases, anatomy, and physiology related to the mouth. Therefore, a stomatologist will be in charge of diagnosing, treating, and preventing those cases related to the field of stomatology.
The periodontium, the teeth, the neuromuscular system, the temporomandibular joint, and the structures of the oral cavity are examples of the areas that a stomatologist is in charge of.
What are the differences between a stomatologist and a dentist?
A stomatologist has a degree in Medicine and Surgery, while a dentist has a degree in Dentistry.
Despite having studied different careers, the skills of both degrees are the same, so the main difference between the two is in the title obtained. Another difference that exists is that the stomatologist can practice general medicine.
Since both diagnose, treat and prevent all oral pathologies, if you need to attend any type of oral care, you can go to either of them without any problem.
