What is Periodontics?
Periodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease and conditions affecting the supporting structures of the teeth. Periodontists are trained to handle complex cases of gum disease and provide advanced treatments to restore and maintain gum health.

Understanding Gum Disease:
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is a common condition that affects the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. It begins with gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums caused by plaque buildup. If left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, a more severe form of gum disease that can lead to tooth loss and other serious health issues.

Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease:

  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bleeding gums, especially when brushing or flossing
  • Persistent bad breath
  • Receding gums
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Pus between the teeth and gums

Our Periodontal Care Services:

  • Scaling and Root Planing: Scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line and smooths the root surfaces. This helps to eliminate bacteria and promote healing of the gums. Scaling and root planing is often the first line of treatment for patients with early to moderate gum disease.
  • Periodontal Maintenance: Following scaling and root planing, regular periodontal maintenance appointments are essential to prevent the recurrence of gum disease. These appointments typically occur every three to four months and involve thorough cleanings and evaluations of your gum health.
  • Gum Surgery: For patients with advanced gum disease, surgical intervention may be necessary. Our skilled periodontists perform various types of gum surgery, including flap surgery, bone grafts, and soft tissue grafts, to restore the health and function of your gums.
  • Antibiotic Therapy: In some cases, antibiotic therapy may be used in conjunction with other treatments to eliminate infection and promote healing. Antibiotics can be applied directly to the gums or taken orally, depending on the severity of the infection.

Q: What causes gum disease?
A: Gum disease is primarily caused by plaque buildup on the teeth and gums. Other factors such as smoking, poor oral hygiene, certain medications, and medical conditions can also contribute to gum disease.

Q: Is gum disease reversible?
A: Gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease, is reversible with proper treatment and good oral hygiene. However, periodontitis, the more advanced stage, requires more intensive treatment to manage and prevent further progression.

Q: How can I prevent gum disease?
A: To prevent gum disease, brush and floss your teeth daily, attend regular dental check-ups and cleanings, maintain a healthy diet, and avoid tobacco use.

Q: Is gum treatment painful?
A: Gum treatment procedures are generally well-tolerated, and we use local anesthesia and sedation options to ensure your comfort. Some patients may experience mild discomfort after treatment, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Q: How often should I have periodontal maintenance appointments?
A: Periodontal maintenance appointments are typically recommended every three to four months, but the frequency may vary depending on your individual needs and the severity of your gum disease.
