Everything I Need to Know About Periodontics


Posted on 6/20/2022 by Dr. Bembey and Dr. Yokoyama
Everything I Need to Know About PeriodonticsPeriodontics is a dental specialty that focuses on the structures that support and enclose the teeth. A periodontist is a dentist that specializes in periodontal disease detection, treatments, and prevention. Periodontists are also experts in dental implant insertion and managing oral infections.

They will also be well-versed in aesthetic periodontal operations and corrective treatments focusing on aesthetics and functionality. Dentists must complete three additional years of schooling beyond dental school and acquire intensive training in these fields to practice periodontics.

Treatment Procedures in Periodontics


Periodontists essentially execute root surface debridement, which is the excision of damaged tissue, and oral and dental matter so the body can restore the affected areas with healthy oral tissue replacements. The tooth will not be able to regain its previous health until all plaque, and damaged tissues have been eliminated.

Periodontists are also very proficient in the field of oral surgery. Instead of relying on a dental surgeon, you can rely on them to place, maintain, and repair dental implants. They can also do bite adjustments, suturing, soft tissue or bone grafting, and flap surgery for good measure. Gingivitis is a moderate kind of gum inflammation that can be prevented by brushing, flossing, and using mouthwash regularly. Chronic or complex cases of periodontal disease, on the other hand, necessitate the aid of periodontists.

They have been exceptionally trained to identify the underlying reasons for the problem and provide the appropriate restoration operations and diagnostic procedures every time.

Periodontal infections affect more than just your teeth, gums, and breath. Cardiovascular disease, strokes, increased blood pressure, and diabetes is all diseases or ailments linked to it. Periodontics efficiently safeguards a person's health by detecting and correcting these problems early on. Proper dental hygiene techniques such as brushing your teeth twice a day, gargling with antibacterial mouthwash, and flossing will help to avoid periodontitis. Additionally, see your dentist at least two times a year or once every three months.


This Doctor is a true healer!


Dr. Bembey is truly a healer. Not one of those Doctors who is in it for the money. You can tell that she loves her job. She actually made it enjoyable, and I don’t normally think of gum surgery as something to enjoy. She is very knowledgeable, and her skills are awesome! She communicates well and tells you small details that really help a lot. And she is there for you if you need her. Most importantly, she saved me from loosing my teeth! This Doctor is a GEM!!! I highly recommend her.
