The specialized area of dentistry that focuses on inflammatory gum related diseases and gum surgeries is called periodontics. A periodontist is a dentist who is trained especially in prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal diseases and placements of dental implants. Periodontics treatment includes the cases ranging from mild to severe gingivitis. Gum disease symptoms are not very difficult to find out as they include bad breath that won't go away, red or swollen gums, tender or bleeding gums, loose or sensitive teeth, receding gums or longer appearing teeth. If any of these symptoms are visible, visiting a periodontic can be helpful in treating them. Gum disease can be treated depending on the severity of the case. The most important requirement of healthy gum is to maintain a healthy oral care. If there are gaps in-between teeth or if there is a missing tooth, then dental implants are a great way to fill the gap. Dental implants are the artificial roots which are placed into the upper and lower jaw by the periodontist. The teeth attached to the jaw look very natural and are very strong. Before the implants, the x-rays and CT scans of the jaw are taken to determine the bone, gum tissue, and space available for the implant. The area is numbed with anesthesia and the implant is surgically placed on the bone. It takes 6-12 weeks for the implant to heal and integrate with the bone. After the bone has matured, the artificial teeth are made and placed on the implant. The artificial tooth is attached to the implant securely.
