Periodontal (gum) disease, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are serious inflammatory disorders that, left untreated, can lead to tooth loss. The word periodontal literally means “around the tooth.” Periodontal disease is a chronic inflammatory disease that affects the gums and bone supporting the teeth. Periodontal disease can affect one tooth or many teeth.
Therefore, periodontics is a dental specialty that involves the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the bone and gum tissues that surround and support the teeth or their substitutes. Periodontics also involves the maintenance of the health, function and esthetics of these structures and tissues after active treatment.
