Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses solely on treating the fire disease that destroys the gums and other supportive tissues surrounding teeth. The gums, cementum alveolar bone, and periodontal tendon are examples of auxiliary tissues that make up the periodontium. Periodontists use scaling and root planing, root surface debridement, and regenerative techniques to treat cases ranging from mild gum disease to more severe periodontitis. Periodontists can also provide care when it's necessary for patients with severe gum infections.
