Periodontics is the dental specialty focused exclusively on the inflammatory diseases that destroy your gums and other supporting structures around the teeth. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants.

Periodontics treats gum diseases from mild gingivitis to the more severe periodontitis. The wide range of treatments includes scaling and root planing of infected root surfaces, the removal of damaged gum tissue, and the reversal of lost bone and tissue. Additionally, periodontics includes the placement, maintenance, and repair of dental implants.
