What is periodontics?

Periodontics is the branch of odontology that prevents, diagnoses and treats diseases of the supporting and protective tissues of the teeth (gum and bone).
The most common diseases are gingivitis, which affects the gums causing inflammation and bleeding; and periodontitis, where the bone that surrounds the teeth is already affected, which can lead to mobility and subsequent tooth loss.

Types of gum disease

The first stage would be Gingivitis, which causes bleeding and inflammation of the gums.

Usually it doesn’t cause any pain, but it can cause unpleasant odor or taste in the mouth. A color change is observed in the gum to an intense red. Hygiene at home should be improved and it is recommended to visit the dentist for assessment and cleaning. In acute stages, there may be pain, suppuration and even loss of the interdental papillae, together or not with fever and general malaise. In this case, oral antibiotics may even be indicated in addition to the measures mentioned above.

    Warning symptoms


    Said diseases are more frequent than we would like and we do not usually pay enough attention because we tend to believe that it is normal for the gum to bleed.

    When any of the aforementioned symptoms/signs appear or if we simply observe blood when we brush our teeth, then we must visit our dentist for a check-up and early diagnosis of the situation. You may not need to do anything other than improving home hygiene after a good explanation of brushing techniques by our hygienists, or performing a complete dental cleaning or, in more advanced cases, a complete periodontal treatment.
