What is Periodontics?
Periodontics is a highly specialized area of dentistry that treats the area "around" a tooth, including gums, bone and supporting ligaments. Most common periodontal services consist of scaling and root planning (also called "deep cleaning"), crown lengthening or adjustments, and dental implants.
For periodontal disease treatment, we have dedicated periodontal specialists (or periodontists) who can diagnosis and treat periodontal disease and other related conditions.
Periodontal disease is becoming more common and can affect your ability to retain your natural teeth for years to come.
What Causes Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal diseases start with the bacteria in the dental plaque. It forms when food in your mouth comes into contact with bacteria. If not treated in time, plaque can harden your gum line into tartar which allows growth of more bacteria in the mouth. It may also result in swollen gums, inflammation, bleeding gums, gingivitis and even affect tooth roots. The bacterial infection may spread and apart from gums, may also affect your jawbone if not controlled in its early phase. In a severe stage of periodontal disease tissue damage occurs which may affect your overall health.
