Periodontics is an area of dentistry that focuses on the areas and structures surrounding the teeth. Without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can collect on the gum and evolve into gingivitis. Untreated gingivitis can evolve into periodontitis stage when the bacteria collects below the gum line causing bone damage or loss. Gum recession makes space for bacteria to collect below your gums. We provide periodontal care like filling your periodontal pockets to help protect your gums from diseases.
Regular oral care is vital to help stop the growth of gum disease. Daily brushing, flossing and rinsing protect your teeth from generating bacteria. Visiting a dentist regularly for examinations of your oral health is as important.
