What is Periodontics?

Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the gums, particularly on the prevention, detection, and treatment of gum disease. In addition to gum disease, Bergenfield dentist Dr. Howard Perlmutter uses his training in periodontics to assist with other periodontal issues such as gum recession or an uneven gum line.
