What does periodontology mean?

“Periodontology is the study of the entire specialized system of hard and soft tissues that support the teeth and maintain their position in the jaw. This system is called periodontium or periodontal space”.


The periodontium acts as a shock absorber during bites and chewing, helps prevent tooth damage from excessive forces and keeps the teeth in a stable position inside the jaws so that they work together efficiently and comfortably during chewing.


What is the periodontal disease?

The periodontal disease, also known as “periodontitis”, is when the gums and deeper periodontal structures become inflamed. This inflammation of the gums, which usually tends to bleed during brushing, is the body’s response to large amounts of bacteria and tartar accumulated on the dental surface.


The easiest form of the disease is gingivitis, the first symptoms being bleeding gums. Left untreated, gingivitis can progress to periodontitis, with increased bleeding, bad breath and possible pain.

If you do not consult a periodontist, the inflammation can spread under the gums, destroying the periodontal ligament and eventually leading to tooth loss.


What is gingivitis?

It is the simplest form of the periodontal disease, usually caused by the presence of tartar. It is manifested by red, inflamed gums, and by induced or spontaneous bleeding. Bleeding occurs frequently when brushing teeth.


How is it treated?

With an evaluation by the physician and careful treatment, it is possible to completely stop the progression of periodontitis. For a guaranteed success, it is necessary to eliminate the bacterial plaque that triggers the disease process and to establish oral hygiene practices.

Depending on the improvement observed in plaque control and gum health, instructions and cleaning can be performed on subsequent visits. The next step is to remove all bacterial deposits and tartar from the root surfaces and gingival pockets.

After a few weeks, the dentist will do a complete evaluation of the gums to check the progress of the treatment. A special tool called a periodontal probe is used to record the depth of any periodontal pocket and to check for bleeding gums.

If periodontal pockets are still present, other treatment options may be suggested, including corrective surgical therapy.
