Periodontology or periodontics is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, as well as diseases and conditions that affect them. The supporting tissues are known as the periodontium, which includes the gingiva (gums), alveolar bone, cementum, and the periodontal ligament. A periodontist is a dentist that specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease and in the placement of dental implants for replacing missing teeth.

According to the Global Burden of Disease Study (2016), severe periodontal disease was the 11th most prevalent condition in the world. The World Health Organization report recently states 100% prevalence of periodontal disease in India. Periodontitis was found to start after age 15; and at 17 years, 10% of Indian boys had periodontitis. It is one of the major causes of tooth loss which can compromise mastication, esthetics, self-confidence, and quality of life. Periodontal disease is a serious issue for not only your oral health, but your overall health. As an idea, here are some of the things that can cause periodontal disease:

  • Bad habits like smoking.
  • Lack of hygiene habits; poor brushing and flossing on a regular basis.
  • Family history of periodontal disease.
  • Certain medications that affect oral health.
  • Cancer, HIV, or other serious illnesses that effect the overall health of your body like diabetes, hypertension, obesity and ischemic heart disease.
  • Changes in your hormone levels.

Periodontal disease also contributes to the causation of other serious systemic illnesses such as cardiac diseases, hypertension, diabetes, obesity, pre term birth, low birth weight, respiratory diseases etc.

We, from the department of Periodontics and Implantology are trained to deal all sorts of gingival and periodontal conditions using various non-anesthetic and anesthetic procedures available for periodontal treatment. The type of treatment is tailored for every patient separately depending upon the severity of the gum disease. Here are the summarized procedures we offer:

  • Professional dental cleaning: typically done during checkups, this procedure removes plaque and tartar which helps prevent gum disease.
  • Scaling and root planing: this deep cleaning procedure allows for the gum line to have tartar and plaque that is deep in the gums removed and made smooth again to attempt bacteria from gathering there again.
  • Bone and soft tissue grafts: if the damage done by the gum disease is too serve, then a graft must be utilized to replace your soft tissue or bone in order to provide function to your teeth once more.
  • Guided tissue regeneration: instead of completing a craft, a regeneration procedure is utilized in order to promote the regrowth of gum and bone where possible.
  • Pocket reduction and flap surgery: in this procedure, the gums are lifted back and tartar is removed. From that point, the gums can be put back into place to fit snugly around the tooth and minimize the space of pockets.
