Periodontics is the dental specialty focusing exclusively in the inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease.
If you experience any of these signs and symptoms, it is important that you schedule an appointment with a periodontist without delay:
Unexplained bleeding while consuming food or during daily cleaning around the gum line is one of the most common signs of periodontal infection.
Continued halitosis (bad breath) that persists even when a rigorous oral hygiene program is in place can be indicative of periodontitis, gingivitis or the beginnings of an infection in the gum tissue
Longer looking teeth can signal recession of the gums and bone loss due to periodontal disease. As this disease progresses and attacks the jawbone (the anchor holding the teeth in place), the teeth may become loose or be lost all together.
