If you have red, swollen or bleeding gums, persistent bad breath or tooth sensitivity, you may have some form of periodontal disease. In healthy gums, shallow pockets exist where the teeth meet the gums. When gum disease occurs, these pockets deepen allowing the accumulation of harmful bacteria which may result in increased gum inflammation and eventual bone or tooth loss.
Periodontal Therapy is a faculty of dentistry that includes the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the supporting and surrounding tissues of teeth and dental implants. This area includes maintenance of the health, function, and aesthetics of all supporting structures and tissues. Tissue regeneration, management of periodontal lesions, and providing dental implants as tooth replacements can play an integral part in comprehensive periodontal therapy.
