Periodontics: A Short Definition and Overview
What is Periodontics? Periodontics is a specialised area of dentistry that involves a high level of understanding of the structures which support and retain teeth within our jaws. These structures include not just the gums, but also the ligament and the surrounding socket bone, collectively known as the periodontium.
Our knowledge and understanding of the above mentioned structures allow our team of Periodontists to provide professional services. These include but are not limited to the following:
- Diagnosis, prevention and management of periodontitis (gum disease)
- Surgical management of ‘gummy’ smiles
- Management of receded gums
- Comparatively comfortable removal of teeth (extractions)
- Surgical placement of dental implants and bone grafting
- Long-term maintenance of teeth and dental implants
