Have you ever heard of periodontics and are you aware of what it entails? Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on your gum tissue and supporting structures around your teeth. Oftentimes, people begin to neglect their gums due to the fact they fail to realize how important your gum tissue is for maintaining your smile. If for any reason your gums are destabilized, it can cause teeth to fall out.
One of the most common forms of gum tissue damage is due to infections known as periodontal disease. If you have periodontal disease, more commonly referred to as gum disease, it will need to be treated through the use of endodontic treatments to make sure that various services and treatments are used, including service debridement, root surface cleaning and bone tissue reversal, but they are also heavily trained in dental implants should the installation or repair of a tooth prosthetic be needed. If you begin to show any signs and symptoms of gum disease, including frequent bouts of bad breath, bleeding gums, or sore and loose teeth, it is important to visit our periodontist to determine if gum disease has set in.
