What is Periodontal Care?

Periodontics is a specialized field within the dental profession that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions that affect the gums, bone, and other supporting structures around teeth. It also includes the placement of dental implants, which are artificial tooth replacements that look and feel like natural teeth. Periodontal care is essential for overall oral health as it helps to prevent periodontal disease, which can lead to systemic infection and tooth loss. Through periodontal care, patients can take an active role in preserving or restoring their smile and maintaining their overall oral health.

What is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a bacterial infection that affects the gums, bone, and other supporting structures of the teeth. It is caused by the buildup of plaque and tartar along the gum line, which can lead to inflammation and damage to the soft tissues and bone surrounding the teeth. Periodontal disease is classified under three progressive stages: gingivitis, periodontitis, and advanced periodontitis. The most common symptoms of periodontal disease include the following:

Gums that bleed when brushing and flossing are an early sign of periodontal disease. The tissue around the teeth may also be swollen, red, and tender.

Recessed gum tissue can cause your teeth to look longer than they should as more of the root surface has become exposed. This may also cause sensitivity as your tooth roots are left vulnerable to temperature changes and stimulation.

Bacteria in plaque can cause bad breath. As the plaque and bacteria invade below the gum line, bad breath can become more persistent and severe.

Periodontal disease can cause teeth to become loose—a sign of possible bone deterioration. Loose teeth can be the result of severe gum recession or weakening of the supporting bone and ligaments.

Benefits of Periodontal Care

Periodontal care can help protect your gums and save you from developing serious oral health problems. Not only does periodontal care involve procedures to maintain or restore the oral supporting structures, but it also includes treatments that address the underlying causes of the disease. Through this type of care, patients can benefit from improved oral health and a stronger smile. The benefits of periodontal care include:

Prevention of periodontal disease

Preservation of teeth

Relief from discomfort
