Periodontics is a dental specialty that is dedicated to the study, prevention and treatment of diseases that affect the tissues that surround and support the teeth, including gums, alveolar bone, periodontal ligament and root cementum.

Within this discipline, different periodontal treatments and techniques are used that adapt to the individual needs of each patient. The main objective is not only to treat periodontal diseases, but also to improve oral health and oral aesthetics.

Dental hygiene and prevention are essential in periodontal treatment. In addition to maintaining good oral hygiene at home, it is important to make regular visits to the dentist for checkups and professional cleanings. These periodic check-ups help to detect and treat any periodontal problems in time, which contributes to maintaining good oral health in the long term.

Frequent questions

Periodontics is a specialty of dentistry that is responsible for the treatment of diseases of the gums and the tissue that surrounds and supports the teeth. This includes procedures such as deep gum cleaning and gum surgery.

A periodontal treatment is necessary when the gums are diseased or damaged. This may be due to plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth, which can lead to gum diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis. If left untreated, these diseases can lead to tooth loss.

Common procedures in periodontal treatment include deep gum cleaning (also known as scaling and root planning), gum surgery, and treating gum disease with medications. Deep cleaning of the gums involves removing plaque and tartar accumulated below the gingival margin and in the root canals. Gum surgery is performed when the periodontal tissue is severely damaged and requires repair. Medications, such as antimicrobials, are used to treat gum disease.

The time needed to complete periodontal treatment varies depending on the type of procedure performed and the general health of each patient. Some procedures, such as deep gum cleaning, can be completed in one or several sessions, while gum surgery may require several weeks of recovery.

Periodontal treatments are usually less painful than other dental treatments such as tooth extractions. The dentist will provide anesthesia during the procedure to minimize any discomfort. It is normal to experience some pain or tenderness after the procedure, but this is usually temporary and can be treated with over-the-counter medications.

The results of periodontal treatment are usually very long-lasting if good oral hygiene is carried out and the dentist is visited regularly for check-ups and cleanings. It is important to follow the dentist's instructions on how to properly care for your gums and teeth to ensure that the results of the treatment are maintained for a long time.
