What is Periodontics?

Periodontics is the specialty of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease, which is a chronic infection of the gums and tissues that support the teeth. Periodontists are experts in the treatment of gum disease, and they can offer a range of treatments, from scaling and root planing to surgery.

What is periodontitis?

Periodontitis is a more serious form of periodontal disease that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. It is caused by bacteria that infect the gums and tissues that support the teeth. The bacteria can damage the bone and ligaments that hold the teeth in place, which can eventually lead to tooth loss.

What are the signs and symptoms of periodontitis?

The signs and symptoms of periodontitis include red, swollen, and tender gums; bad breath; loose teeth; and receding gums. If you experience any of these symptoms, see your dentist right away.

What is the treatment for periodontitis?

The treatment for periodontitis depends on the severity of the disease. In most cases, scaling and root planing is the first step in treatment. This procedure involves scraping off the plaque and tartar from the teeth and roots with a special instrument. The root surfaces are then smoothed to remove any rough spots that could harbor bacteria.

How is gum disease treated?

Gum disease is treated with a combination of therapies, which may include deep cleanings, scaling and root planing, gum surgery, and antibiotics. The goal of treatment is to eliminate the bacteria that cause the disease and to restore the health of the gums.

What are the risks of periodontitis?

The risks of periodontitis include tooth loss, receding gums, and damage to the jawbone.

Is periodontal disease contagious?
