Periodontology is the branch of dentistry dealing with treatment of diseases of periodontium and gums caused by excessive bacteria in mouth.

The disease leads to visible gum recession, destruction of the bone structure around the teeth, the teeth becomes loose and eventually falls out. Apart from that, periodontology is dangerous for health. Diseases of periodontium are tightly connected to other system diseases such as lung disease, heart disease, diabetes…
Parodontopathy is the main cause of teeth loss with adults, but unfortunately it is present with younger population.
In the fight against periodontology the most important thing is preventive, early detection of the disease and regular visits to your dentist!
Gingivitis – the first sign of periodontal disease
Gingivitis or inflammation of the gum tissue that bleeds when touched is the first sign of development of the disease.
Periodontal pockets may be formed in the part where gums and teeth meet, where bacteria are accumulated, i.e. deposits are created. This process can be stopped and periodontal tissues can be completely healed. However, it is very important that adequate measures are taken immediately.
