Periodontics is the speciality of dentistry that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis and the treatment of diseases or abnormalities affecting the thissues that support the teeth, i.e. bones and gums.


Periodontal disease is one of the most common oral pathologies in humans, which progressively damages the supporting tissues of the teeth. We distinguish here two large groups:

Gingivitis: Which is the inflammation of the gums caused by the accumulation of bacterial plaque. This disease is very common and usually causes irritation, swelling and redness in the gums that surround the teeth.
This pathology must be treated immediately, since it is reversible and does not affect the bone tissue; and with proper treatment, the patient’s gingival health can be restored. If gingivitis is not treated in a timely manner, it can evolve into periodontitis.

Periodontitis: Which is a serious infection of the tissues that support the tooth (bones and gums), caused by bacteria and can cause irreversible destruction of the alveolar bone. These bacteria lodge in the space between the tooth and the gum, causing an inflammation process that leads to the formation of periodontal pockets. Other risk factors that increase the risk of periodontitis are smoking, systemic intake of some medications, dental malpositions and some habits such as bruxism.

Both pathologies can be accompanied by other signs such as bleeding gums, bad breath and can even cause tooth loss. Both are very common, and generally associated with poor oral hygiene. So they can be prevented through a daily hygiene routine; brush your teeth at least twice a day, use dental floss and make regular visits to the dental clinic, in this way the chances of suffering from any of them will be considerably reduced.
