Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the gums and supporting structures of the teeth. The word "periodontics" comes from the Greek words "peri" meaning around and "odont" meaning tooth.
The primary concern of periodontics is the health of the periodontium, which refers to the tissues that surround and support the teeth, including the gums, periodontal ligament, cementum, and alveolar bone. Periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis, can affect these tissues and lead to problems such as gum inflammation, gum recession, tooth loss, and even systemic health issues.
Overall, periodontics is a vital branch of dentistry that focuses on the health and aesthetics of the gums and supporting structures. By seeking the expertise of a periodontist, individuals can ensure the proper diagnosis, treatment, and management of periodontal conditions, leading to improved oral health and a confident smile.
