We treat more than just your teeth! Periodontics is the dentistry specialty that treats gum diseases and the bone supporting the teeth.
The balance alteration of the bacteria living in the mouth, plus the accumulation of bacterial plaque, can cause inflammation and bleeding in the gums and lead to diseases known as periodontal diseases (because they affect the periodontium, the tissue that supports the tooth).
The most common cases treated in periodontics are Gingivitis, an inflammation in the gums, and Periodontitis, which combines inflammation and/or infection in the bone.
To treat gingivitis, it is recommended to pay special attention to oral hygiene. We apply techniques such as professional cleaning with high-tech instruments that guarantee better oral health.
In the case of Periodontitis, after a thorough cleaning, treatment may require surgery to slow the progression of the disease and correct any cosmetic defects that may have arisen.
