Branch of Dental Medicine dedicated to the supporting tissues of teeth:
Gingiva, Bone and the ligament between tooth and bone. There are several pathologies, the most common being gingivitis (inflammation/gingival infection) and periodontitis (inflammation/infection of the bone). The most common cause is plaque and tartar or “stone”.
There are bacteria that produce toxins capable of destroying the collagen that is the basic structure of the bone and gums, the evolution of these diseases lead to loss of bone and gums and consequent tooth loss. The way to avoid them is to do cleaning or scaling every 6 months and good oral hygiene every 12 hours with the proper technique and materials.
Sometimes there is a need for minor surgeries, carried out by a specialized professional, which involves scaling and root planing and bacterial elimination, supported by antibiotic treatment.
