What is Periodontics?

Periodontics is a highly specialized area of dentistry that treats the area "around" a tooth, including gums, bone and supporting ligaments. Most common periodontal services consist of scaling and root planing ("deep cleaning"), crown lengthening and dental implants. For periodontal disease treatment, we have many dedicated periodontal specialists (or periodontists) who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and other conditions.

Periodontal disease is becoming more common. To learn more about periodontal disease, visit the About Periodontal Disease page.
