Periodontia

Periodontic

Periodontic is the branch of dentistry that studies and prevents diseases of the tissues around the tooth (periodontium). The periodontium is formed by the union of 4 structures, gingiva, alveolar bone, periodontal ligament and cementum, and that together, provides dental support.

PERIODONTAL DISEASE is an inflammatory pathology caused by plaque, tartar or immune mediated diseases that affects the fibers that connect the root of the tooth to the alveolar bone.

Prophylactic Periodontal Treatment

Fluoride Application

It has the objective of slowing the bacterial adherence in progression in the oral cavity, or, to help replace the superficial layer removed during the prophylaxis procedure. In addition, assists on the narrowing of the dentin channels, decreasing post-treatment sensitivity.
