Periodontics is the specialty of dentistry that deals with periodontal disease, which is what affects the gums and teeth supporting tissues, including bone. In an initial phase it starts with an inflammation of the gums called gingivitis. This phase is reversible with a diagnosis and early treatment. If the inflammation of the gum lasts longer, it leads to what is known as periodontal disease or periodontitis. This phase entails a loss of tissue support and bone which, if it is not treated properly, can lead to teeth loss.
Our periodontics specialist, Dr. Eduardo de Lucas Villarrubia, will be pleased to attend you.
