Periodontics is a field of dental specialty that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease. Periodontists have completed several years of additional training following dental school.
Periodontal (gum) disease is a degenerative condition that begins with mild gum inflammation (gingivitis). The best way to avoid developing gum disease is to practice good oral hygiene at home, and to visit the dentist regularly. This way, we can monitor your oral health and quickly provide treatment if gum disease is detected.
Periodontal disease is characterized by red, swollen, painful, or bleeding gums, though in some cases it has no noticeable symptoms. It is caused when the bacteria in your mouth infect the gums, causing them to because irritated. If untreated, gum disease will eventually lead to bone loss and gum recession. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
Periodontal treatments will be necessary in cases of moderate or advanced gum disease, localized gum recession, prior to crown lengthening, and before a ridge augmentation procedure. Treatments may range of deep dental cleanings (scaling and root planing) and antibiotic treatments to oral surgery.
