Periodontics is the field of dentistry concerned with the gums and the other structures that support the teeth.
Periodontics targets the inflammation and infection of the gums, helping us prevent, diagnose, and treat periodontitis – otherwise also known as gum disease, or periodontal disease. As one of the most commonly diagnosed diseases in Europe and the leading cause of tooth loss, gum disease is both prevalent and serious.
The health of our gums not only affects our overall long-term oral health, but can also have an impact on our whole-body wellbeing, and has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease.
The prevalence of gum disease increases as we age, and is affected by lifestyle factors and diet. But with regular visits to the dentist and dental hygienist, it’s also easy to prevent and detect. By following the oral hygiene advice provided by our dental team, and using such cutting edge cleaning techniques as Airflow Tooth Polishing, we can help reduce the likelihood of gum disease.
If gum disease is detected, then our highly skilled team are well able to treat it. In some cases, this might mean minor surgical treatments in order to completely clean the root surface.Back to Advanced Dentistry
