Gum Treatments

The gums, a vital part of oral health, serve as the foundation for teeth. Periodontology, a specialized branch of dentistry, focuses on combating gum diseases and plays a critical role in maintaining oral health.

What is Periodontology?

Periodontology delves into the tissues surrounding teeth, diagnosing, and treating gum diseases. Diseases of the gums can lead to infections, inflammation, and damage to the tissues around teeth. If left untreated, these conditions can lead to tooth loss and other serious health concerns.

Treatments in this field include procedures like dental scaling, root surface debridement, gum surgeries, bone grafts, and periodontal plastic surgery. Each aims to restore gum health, control infections, and fortify the foundation of teeth.

Effects and Significance

Periodontal treatments not only impact oral health but also have profound effects on overall well-being. Managing gum diseases can decrease the risk of systemic health issues. For instance, a link may exist between gum diseases and health problems like heart diseases, diabetes, and the risk of premature births.

Moreover, periodontal treatments offer aesthetic benefits. Healthy gums positively influence the aesthetics of a smile and overall appearance, bolstering an individual's confidence.
