Periodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that places a strong emphasis on the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and various conditions affecting the gums and soft oral tissues. Periodontics also includes the specialized placement of dental implants.

Periodontal disease, commonly referred to as gum disease, is caused by the buildup of bacteria in plaque. When plaque accumulates on the teeth, these bacteria cause irritation and inflammation of the gum tissues. Without early intervention, gingivitis – the initial stage of gum disease – can progress into periodontitis, a more advanced and severe form of the condition.

Gingivitis is characterized by symptoms such as redness, tenderness, bleeding and swelling of the gums. Fortunately, when detected and treated early, gingivitis can often be controlled and even reversed through professional cleanings and improved oral care practices at home. However, periodontitis requires more extensive and frequent treatment due to the involvement of gum recession, potential bone loss and even tooth loss.

Our dentist is pleased to offer high-quality periodontal treatments, including scaling and root planing as well as some surgical treatments.
