Periodontics is the dental specialty that deals with Diagnosis, Prevention and Treatment of “Gums diseases”, such as Gingivitis and Periodontitis.
Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums caused by a bacterial infection, which causes their reddening and frequent episodes of gum bleeding. If this disease is correctly treated, with a good oral hygiene, and with regular visits to the dentist, it will not cause any fixing bone loss.
Si la gingivitis no se trata debidamente, puede convertirse en Periodontitis, que es la inflamación alrededor de los dientes. Se forman espacios y bolsas porque se pierde tanto el hueso como los tejidos que sostienen los dientes.
The following are risk factors for gingivitis and periodontitis: diabetes or another chronic disease, hormonal changes, smoking, certain medicaments or genetic factors.
Symptoms of gingivitis or periodontitis can include:
- Bad breath
- Inflamation and reddening of gums, which can bleed
- Pain when chewing
- Tooth shifting
- Sensitive teeth
- Teeth may look longer than normal
