Periodontics is the dental specialty focusing exclusively in the progressive inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other surrounding tissues around the teeth known as Periodontitis (Pyorrhea). Periodontal diseases range from gum inflammation to major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. An estimated 80% of the population above the age of 40 suffers from it. It is the number one cause of tooth loss after the age of 40. Most adults with periodontal disease are unaware they have it. If diagnosed early and treated the teeth can be saved.
A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease. At Dream Smile Dental clinic, Ranchi, our expert Periodontists have received extensive training in these areas, to get acquainted with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease. They are also trained in cosmetic periodontal procedures.
