PERIODONTICS

What is Periodontics?

Periodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with preventing, diagnosing, and treating diseases that harm the gums and other parts that hold teeth in place, such as the bone and tissues. The primary diseases it tackles are gingivitis and periodontitis, caused by bacterial infections and gum inflammation.

What is periodontal disease?

Prolonged infections and inflammation cause periodontal disease in the gums and the bones that support the teeth. It is called gingivitis, which is when your gums are swollen or become red or bleed. In some severe cases, your gums may even disconnect from your teeth or fall out.

Some nerve-wracking stats say that almost half of all adults experience periodontists at some point in their lives, and with age, it only worsens.
