Studies the tissues around the tooth
Periodontics studies the tissues around the tooth, such as gums, until the root tip or the dental element. The periodontium consists of alveolar bone, cement root, the periodontal ligament and gingiva. Various diseases can affect tissues, for example, gingivitis and periodontitis (pyorrhea), which can undermine the health of the tooth as well. Periodontics aims to individuate proper therapies and techniques to preserve periodontal ligament or find alternative solutions for the object under study.
