Periodontics is a specialist branch of dentistry focused on gums and the surrounding supporting structures of teeth and implants, like jaw bones.
Periodontists often educate customers on the importance of gum health and work to reduce inflammation and infection of the gums and surrounding structures.
Periodontal treatments can include:
- deep scaling and careful root cleaning
- periodontal surgery
- the placement of dental implants
- bone and gum grafting
- crown lengthening
- gum lifts and other cosmetic gum surgery
