Pecos Family Dental in Las Vegas Texas takes pride in itself and its staff for practicing Periodontics, which is an emerging field in dental science. Periodontics is basically a study of ‘Periodontium’ and the disease associated with it. For those of you who don’t know, Periodontium is a tissue that supports the teeth structure. Bacterial plaque including P. gingivalis, T. forsythia, and the T. denticola are responsible for the diseases affiliated with Periodontium.
Periodontal diseases differ, but they are usually a result of the plaque biofilm accumulation of bacteria like the P. gingivalis, T. forsythia, and the T.denticola. Combined with immune inflammatory mechanisms and other factors, tooth loss becomes a likely possibility. Today, these diseases are the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
