Periodontics

SmileMany people think it’s normal if their gums bleed when they brush or floss. In fact, swollen or bleeding gums are early signs of infection. This infection can spread and sometimes result in tooth loss.

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal diseases, and also plans, places and maintains dental implants. Periodontology is a branch of dentistry dedicated to studying the tissues surrounding the teeth, researching new techniques for treating periodontal diseases and replacing missing teeth with dental implants. Periodontists are also known for their excellent handing of the gum tissue while performing periodontal plastic surgery in conjunction with cosmetic dentistry.
