Periodontics entails the treatment of several dental conditions such as severe gum disease, infected teeth root surfaces, damaged tooth tissue and conditions requiring dental implants and denture swelling. Periodontitis and gingivitis are gum infections that a periodontist treats. A periodontist is a dentist who has specialized in the supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. These structures include the gums, alveolar bones, cementum and periodontal ligaments.
In the course of their specialization, periodontists also acquire expertise in the treatment of oral inflammation. Signs and symptoms indicative of the need to see periodontists include receding gums, loose teeth, bleeding gums and gum infections.
A trained periodontist is skilled enough to know the types of teeth conditions requiring complete dentures in which all teeth are replaced or partial dentures when only several teeth are missing.
