Periodontics is the specialty of dentistry that deals with the health of the gums and surrounding bone. Periodontitis, also known as gum disease or periodontal disease, is an inflammatory disease of the gums that can lead to tooth loss. Periodontology is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of periodontitis, as well as the prevention of gum disease. Periodontics also includes surgery to repair the gums and surrounding bone when they have been damaged by periodontitis or other diseases.
Professional teeth cleaning, also known as prophylactic teeth cleaning or “scaling,” is a procedure in which the dentist or a dental assistant thoroughly cleans the teeth to remove plaque and tartar. This procedure is usually recommended every 6 to 12 months to rid teeth of impurities that cannot be removed by daily brushing. During professional teeth cleaning, teeth are also polished and fluoride treatments are applied to keep them healthy and strong. Professional teeth cleaning may also be recommended for people with periodontitis to slow the progression of the disease.
Bleaching refers to the whitening of teeth to make them whiter and brighter. There are several ways to whiten teeth, such as using whitening gels or lasers, wearing whitening trays, or undergoing in-office whitening treatments at the dentist. Teeth whitening is a popular way to improve the aesthetic appearance of teeth. However, it is important to note that whitening treatments are not equally effective for everyone, and some people may still not achieve the desired results after several treatments. In addition, bleaching may not be suitable for people with sensitive teeth or health problems. Therefore, it is strongly advised to always consult a dentist before undergoing a whitening treatment.
