Periodontics is the dental specialty focusing on periodontal disease, which destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth. Periodontists treat cases ranging from mild gingivitis to more severe periodontitisand offer a wide range of treatments, such as scaling and root planing (the cleaning of infected root surfaces).
Since dental plaque is the main cause of periodontal disease, its removal on a daily basis is essential. Which is why we are told from childhood forward, to brush at least twice a day and floss regularly and, if you are a smoker, stop. Consistent behavior change is the most important element in maintaining long term periodontal health, since daily plaque removal in large part will set the stage for sustained, successful treatment.
