Periodontics is a specialty within the field of dentistry, that focuses on the supporting structures of the teeth. That includes bone, gums, interior cheek and lip tissues, as well as bite problems and facial pain.
Periodontics also includes dental implant therapy. Dental implants are titanium posts that can be placed into the jaws and used to restore lost teeth or support and retain many, or even all the teeth, and they are quite predictable.
If your dentist referred you to a periodontist, it was because he or she was concerned about the health of your gums. Seeking periodontal treatment and/or implant therapy are major steps toward restoring your gums and mouth to good oral health and retaining your teeth and smile for a lifetime. As important is the effect that good oral health can have on your overall or "systemic" health.
