What is periodontics?
Periodontics is a specialized field of dentistry dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of periodontal diseases. These diseases include gingivitis and periodontitis, which affect the tissues surrounding and supporting the teeth. These tissues include the alveolar bone, the periodontal ligament, and the gums.
Periodontics also focuses on the treatment of gum disease, the maintenance of healthy periodontal tissues, and the regeneration of damaged periodontal tissue.
At Vila Dental, we address diseases related to the support structures of the teeth, including the gums, periodontium, and alveolar bone.
