What Are Periodontics?
The treatment and prevention of periodontal disease are one of the main goals of the specialty of periodontology. It also takes care of the condition of the jawbone, periodontal ligaments, and other tissues that surround the teeth. Gingivitis, receding gums, and periodontal pockets are the usual gum problems. People who experience symptoms including bleeding gums, loose teeth, or bad breath may need periodontal treatment. Gum disease may also be at higher risk among smokers, those with certain medical conditions, and people with a history of the disease. Scaling and root planing procedures, surgical procedures such as flap surgery, and regenerative procedures are examples of periodontal therapy. Your doctor can determine the course of treatment best suited to your unique needs.
When Do I Need Periodontics Treatment
Periodontal treatment is usually recommended for patients who have gum disease (such as gingivitis or periodontitis) or who have problems with their bite, the health of their jawbones, or the stability of their teeth. Periodontal assessment can help diagnose these problems and provide treatment options, such as scaling and root planing, periodontal surgery, or bite modification. It is important to treat gum disease in time, as it can lead to tooth loss and other serious health problems if left untreated.
Result Of Periodontics
Periodontal treatment results can vary depending on the severity of the condition being treated. Common results include reduced inflammation and bleeding from the gums, improved adhesion of the gums to the teeth, and reduced tooth loss. The procedure at our clinic in Richmond Hill may include deep cleaning (peeling and root planing), antibiotics, and surgery in severe cases. Early detection and treatment of gum disease can lead to the best results, and maintaining good oral hygiene is essential to maintaining it.
