What Is Periodontal Treatment
Periodontology is the branch of dentistry which is specialized in treatments of gums (soft tissue around the teeth and the jaw bones). The word ‘Periodontology’ is made up of 3 Greek words, just like Orthodontics; ‘Peri’ means surrounding, ‘Odonto’ means tooth and finally, ‘Logos’ meaning science.
What Does A Periodontist Deal with?
The main aim of a Periodontist is to help people keep a healthy state in their gums. Most periodontists spend their time treating problematic cases of periodontal disease and patients with a complicated medical history. The periodontist performs a wide range of treatments that are used to address gum disease, like:
- Scaling and root planing:
During this treatment, the roots of the patient's teeth are cleaned to remove bacteria, plaque and tartar; these roots are then polished to make it more difficult for such things to accumulate on them in the future.
- Root surface debridement:Damaged tissues in the mouth are removed during this treatment.
- Surgical treatments:There are a number of surgical procedures that are used to deal with gum disease, like replacing a lost tooth with an implant and deep cleanings
