Dental Facts and Findings on Periodontics

Posted .

Have you ever heard of periodontics? Periodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses entirely on periodontal disease and other issues with your gums and supporting structures. If you should have any issues with your gums or require restorations or replacements that require modifications to your gums, your periodontist will be able to assist you.

If you are suffering from any form of gum disease including gingivitis, it will often require the skill of a periodontist to treat. Periodontists are highly trained to inspect your gums and provide top-of-the-line treatments as needed. They can even medically enhance your smile with periodontal procedures when necessary. If you have shown any signs of gum disease or you think you have gum disease, come out visit our office today.

Periodontists receive an additional 3 years of study beyond their traditional dental schooling education. Through the use of this time, they are able to learn complex and highly effective techniques for providing assistance with your gum tissue. Treatments such as bone tissue reversal, root surface cleaners, root surface debridement, and other gum disease treatments are all possible through the use of periodontics.
