OverviewPeriodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with diseases of the gums and bone, their diagnosis and treatment.
Gum (Periodontal) disease is caused by bacterial infections of the soft tissue and bone that supports the teeth. The disease can cause tissue and bone destruction eventually leading to tooth loss. Depending on the stage of the gum disease, the treatment ranges from complete Cleaning (Scaling) to Periodontal surgery.
