Periodontics is a specialty of dentistry that treats pathologies that affect the tissues that support the tooth. These tissues are the gums, the bone and the periodontal ligament whose deterioration produces the loss of tooth support, that is, dental mobility. Periodontal diseases are important bacterial infections that can also affect us systemically, since the bacteria travels through the bloodstream to vital organs and can cause pathologies such as cardiovascular diseases, premature births or affect the metabolism of a diabetic patient, for example. The origin of periodontal pathologies can be found in the patient’s genetics, as well as other associated factors such as having poor oral hygiene, smoking or a bacterial flora prone to these diseases.

Symptoms of periodontal disease:

  • Red gums, even purplish sometimes
  • Swollen gums
  • Bleeding from the gums when brushing or even for no apparent reason
  • Halitosis (bad breath)
  • Tooth mobility
  • History of these pathologies in the family

Periodontal diseases:

  • Gingivitis: it is characterised by the reddish colour of the gums, inflammation and bleeding. Normally associated with poor oral hygiene, but it can also be a consequence of the intake of some medications or it can appear during pregnancy. If gingivitis is not treated, it can progress into periodontitis.
  • Periodontitis: it is characterised by the presence of tartar build-up in the gums, excessive bleeding and the appearance of periodontal pockets where bacteria accumulates that will produce the reabsorption of the bone and other supporting tissues, leading to the mobility of the teeth and their subsequent loss.
