What is Periodontics and Why Does it Matter?

Periodontics focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease and other conditions that affect the tissues surrounding your teeth. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, as well as increase your risk of developing other health problems such as diabetes and heart disease. Periodontal treatment may include scaling and root planing, a deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque and tartar buildup, as well as antibiotics or surgery in more severe cases. By maintaining healthy gums through regular periodontal care, you can improve your oral health and avoid the potentially serious consequences of gum disease.
