Periodontology (Periodontics) is the specific aspect of dentistry that studies the supporting structures of the teeth and the study of the diseases and conditions that affect these structures e.g. gingivitis, gum disease.
The supporting structures or tissues are collectively known as the periodontium which comprises of the gums (or gingiva), cementum, alveolar region and periodontal ligament.
There are many forms of periodontal disease but these often result from bacterial build-up on the teeth and gums. Over time and if untreated, this can lead to inflammation of the gums and degradation of the bone surrounding the teeth. This is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. At our private dental practices in Harley Street London, Orpington Kent, Dorking Surrey Specialist Periodontist, Dr Hatem Algraffee provides private expert treatment and care for all types of gum treatment
