What is Periodontology?

Periodontology is a branch of dental medicine that treats the supporting structures of teeth (bone, cement, periodontium, gingiva) in order to eliminate irregularities and damages that cause problems to oral health.

Periodontal diseases include inflammatory change of gums (gingiva) called gingivitis, and if the inflammation affects deeper structures, then we are talking about periodontitis. 

Periodontal disease is one of the most common problems we encounter in patients, because many are not even aware of the problem until it is too late. The most common symptoms are inflammation of the gums, swelling, bleeding or receding gums, difficulty chewing, pains and loose teeth, and in the worst case they can lead to tooth loss.

The most common cause of periodontal disease is poor oral hygiene that leads to a collection of bacteria (plaque) and the formation of dental calculus in the oral cavity. Frequent causes are also residual food and poor prosthetic appliances, but this disease can also be hereditary. It is crucial to start with periodontal treatment in time, since lack of treatment seriously endangers the teeth and can cause their loss.
