Periodontics: the branch of dental medicine concerned with the prevention and treatment of diseases that are in the gums and supporting structures of the teeth (Perio = around & odont = tooth)
Orthodontics: the branch of dentistry involved in restoring and preventing dental and facial irregularities AKA malocclusion (another word for bad bites such as an “overbite” and “underbite”)
Oral Surgery: the branch of dentistry that involves but is not limited to TOOTH EXTRACTIONS and mainly focuses on REMOVING INFECTIONS and preventing them from spreading.
General Dentistry: a compilation of all specialties in dentistry AKA your average family dentist.
One way diseases in the gum occur: NOT BRUSHING YOUR TEETH PROPERLY. This causes a buildup of plaque under the gums, which could lead to an infection of the tooth that can cause loss in tooth and bone structure as well as bleeding in the gums.
