What is Periodontics?

Periodontics is the field of dentistry concerned with diseases of the gums and periodontal tissues (including bone) that support the teeth.

How Can Periodontal Diseases Occur & How Are They Treated?

Periodontal diseases are most commonly caused by a build-up of bacterial plaque on the patient’s teeth and gums, which will lead to tissue damage. However, they can also be caused by other influences such as diabetes, smoking, pregnancy and genetic inheritance. Symptoms of periodontal diseases include bleeding of the gums, redness, inflammation or tenderness around the teeth that occurs either spontaneously or when brushing. The most common diseases are Gingivitis which affects the soft tissue that protects a patient’s teeth, leading to gum damage, and Periodontitis which causes infections in the bones that keep the teeth in place. Periodontitis can also impact other tissues, such as the periodontal ligament and the root. Gingivitis can progress into periodontitis disease due to factors such as bacteria, stress, alcohol consumption, systemic diseases and poor oral hygiene. This is why it is so important to treat periodontal diseases with reliable dental tools that guarantee precise, flawless results.

Treatment for Periodontal diseases usually involves professional prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) for Gingivitis and root scaling and polishing for Periodontitis. There are a variety of dental tools and equipment which aid these procedures and help to remove plaque and bacteria from the roots of the teeth.
