Periodontology intends to preserve and treat all tooth supporting structures, defined periodontium. They include both soft tissue (periodontal ligament and gingiva) and hard tissue (cementum and alveolar bone) that surround the tooth and in healthy status provide its stability.
Periodontal diseases are gingivitis and periodontitis; periodontitis, also known as gum disease or periodontal disease, is a chronic inflammatory disease. Such symptoms as bleeding or swelling gums, mobility or moving teeth, an increased sensitivity to heat and cold, must be considered a wake-up call to undergo a specialist periodontal check-up.
Bacteria that cause gum diseases are likely to increase the risk of systemic disorders, such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and respiratory infections.
