What is periodontics?

Understanding Periodontics

Periodontics, a specialized field within dentistry, focuses on addressing inflammatory diseases that impact the gums and the supporting structures around teeth.

General dentists, have the expertise to address a wide range of periodontal cases, ranging from mild gingivitis to more severe periodontitis. Treatment options include scaling and root planing (a thorough cleaning of infected root surfaces), root surface debridement (the removal of damaged tissue), and regenerative procedures (aimed at reversing bone and tissue loss). For cases of severe periodontitis, consulting a specialist in periodontics may be advisable. Periodontists excel in performing surgical interventions to restore gum health and are specialists in the placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants.
