Periodontology: the health of the gums

The mouth’s health cannot only be assessed through the teeth. The gums and skeletal system (the jawbone) also say a lot about our oral health, and a speciality in Dentistry is entirely dedicated to this topic.

Periodontology is the field that treats and prevents diseases of the hard and soft tissues (bones and gums) that support the teeth and keep them in position in the jaws.

Gingivitis and periodontitis

Periodontal diseases can be divided into 2 main groups: gingivitis and periodontitis. Both consist of inflammations or infections of the tissues around the teeth as a result of bacterial accumulation. But while gingivitis is limited to the gums, periodontitis is the advanced stage of periodontal disease, which moves from the gums to the bone.

Periodontitis affects more than half of the population and is responsible for most tooth loss in adult patients. Therefore, periodontal diseases should not be ignored but treated as soon as possible to avoid more serious oral problems.

Periodontal treatments

Once in the clinic, periodontal treatments may include decontaminating the roots, elimination of plaque and tartar. In more advanced situations, minor surgery may be necessary.

In addition to periodontal diseases, gummy smile and gum recession can be treated through this speciality.

But above all, it is essential to have preventive behaviour through good oral hygiene habits.
