What is Periodontics ?
Regular dental visits allow your dentist to examine your gums and provide preventive care to keep your gums healthy. But if you need further treatment, a periodontist is available to treat your gums. A periodontist will treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. They offer a wide range of treatments, including scaling and root planning, or root surface debridement. Surgical procedures are also available for those with sever gum problems.
It is important to visit a periodontist if you have periodontal needs that cannot be managed by a general dentist. With the growing connection between periodontal disease and other chronic diseases of aging, periodontal treatment by a periodontist is more important than ever before.
