two separate but related
fields in dentistry

Oral medicine is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis and management of medical conditions that affect the oral and maxillofacial region. This may include conditions such as salivary gland disorders and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Periodontology is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the health of the gums and the bones that support the teeth. Periodontologists are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease, which is an infection of the gums and the bones that support the teeth. They also provide treatment for dental implants and other procedures related to soft and hard tissues around the teeth. Periodontology also deals with the esthetic aspect of the gums and teeth.

Both oral medicine and periodontology play an important role in maintaining overall oral and overall health.

KDC has a resident oral medicine and periodontology specialist who diagnoses and treats patients with gum conditions, illnesses, growths or lesions in the mouth and surrounding tissue, as well as assess patients for implant placement.
