Periodontics refers to the field of dentistry concerned with the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of functional as well as structural diseases of the gums. The most common cause of periodontal disease is hardened bacterial plaque. They adhere to teeth and cause inflammation in the gums and can even lead to resorption of the jawbone that supports the teeth. The aim of periodontal treatment is to clean the pockets of bacteria thoroughly to prevent even more damage to the gums and surrounding bone.
