Protecting Your Smile’s Foundation
Within dentistry, periodontics is a specialty focus on the gums and other supporting structures of your teeth. The goal is to identify, treat, and prevent periodontal disease and other inflammations of the area. The gums act as a barrier against bacteria and seal around the roots of your teeth. When your gums are weakened, your teeth and roots become vulnerable to infection, so it’s imperative to keep them strong and healthy. Having good periodontal health protects you not only from adult tooth loss but also other health problems including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.
