What is Periodontics and periodontal/gum disease?

Periodontics is one of nine specialties recognized by the American Dental Association. It involves diagnosis, treatment and prevention of problems that originate between your teeth or in your gums. Gum disease is caused by bacterial plaque that is left for too long without being flossed and brushed away. When left too long with no treatment, the problems get worse eroding your gums away from your teeth or worse. Dr Gregory has used her periodontist training to treat numerous patients in Atascocita TX suffering from the pain and damage that periodontal problems cause.
