Periodontics is the practice of addressing, preventing, and treating diseases of the soft tissue in the mouth and gums, including diseases like periodontitis. Periodontal disease, a.k.a gum disease is an infection of the gums by bacteria found in plaque. This condition is caused when plaque builds up on the teeth and that bacteria irritates the gums. When left untreated, it leads to the first stage of periodontitis, gingivitis. Usually leaving the person with red, bleeding, tender and or swollen gums, it can elevate to a more serious condition causing tooth loss.
This first stage of periodontitis can usually be treated and managed, possibly even cured with professional cleanings and intense home care. Later stages, or periodontitis in full effect, however, usually requires more treatment that is more intensive. Both of these issues, however, are no match for our experienced team here at Beyond Dental Health.
Even if the later stages of periodontitis begins to show, we are well equipped with procedures like dental implantation to fix your smile. Dental implantation requires top-tier advanced training for the best results. To learn more about the help we can offer you, contact us today.
