Periodontics involves the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the supportive structures of the teeth, such as your gums. The primary focus of this field is the treatment of periodontal disease of which is caused by the accumulation of bacteria buildup in the gums. Periodontal disease can lead to bone loss, degenerative changes in the gingiva, exposure of the root, and ultimately increase the susceptibility to acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (ANUG). We are able to treat the underlying causes of these issues.
