In order to ensure your smile has the best chance of receiving the care it needs, you’ll need to assess all aspects of your oral health including the status of your teeth and gums. If for any reason your gums are damaged or diseased, periodontal treatment will be necessary. Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses primarily on your gums.
Periodontics consists of the care and support of your gums. Because of the extensive nature and complex treatments involved with your gums, periodontists will need an additional two to three years of advanced medical training beyond dental school to allow them to complete and perform the tasks required for periodontal care. Several services including root surface cleanings, bone tissue reversals and root surface debridements are possible through the use of periodontics. Periodontists are also trained to help treat and repair dental implants.
If for any reason you notice any issues with your gums including irregularities and abnormalities in their visual appearance or the routine occurrence of bleeding and bad breath, it could be linked to underlying conditions associated with gingivitis, which is an early stage of gum disease. If gum disease is present, you will need to visit your periodontist.
