Periodontics is the treatment of periodontitis or periodontal disease, which involves an inflammation of the gum. If left untreated, it can lead to bad breath and possibly even tooth loss. The gums become inflamed due to the bacteria in the plaque on the surface of the tooth.
Periodontitis can affect many areas, including the gums and bones. A pocket can form between the root of the tooth and the gum where bacteria builds up and calculus can develop.
This issue is often labelled as the ‘silent disease’ due to many people being unaware of their condition until the advanced stages. 10% of the population suffer from more severe forms of gum disease.
