Periodontics Information:Periodontics, or periodontology, is a specialty within dentistry practiced by a periodontist who studies supporting structures of the teeth, diseases and conditions. These supporting tissues are called the periodontium, which consists of the gums, alveolar bone, cementum, and periodontal ligament.
Periodontal diseases usually fall into two categories: gingivitis and periodontitis. Treatment begins with the removal of tartar with procedures known as root planing and scaling. Other less invasive methods involve the administering of oral antibiotics.
