Periodontics in Vancouver

When it comes to maintaining your oral health, the gums are often neglected in favour of the teeth. But while teeth are certainly important, your gums play an equally important role in your overall oral health.

What Is Periodontics?

Periodontics is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the gums and jawbone. This dental specialty encapsulates a number of dental treatments and procedures, including gum grafting and the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease.

Diagnosing and Treating Gum Disease

Gum disease, also known as periodontitis or periodontal disease, is an infection that affects your gums. If left untreated, it can reach the jawbone, destroying the bone and potentially leading to the loss of your teeth. Periodontics is concerned with the treatment of periodontitis, including scaling, root planing, and bone grafting.
