PeriodontologyPeriodontal disease, often mistakenly referred to as gum disease, is an infection of the periodontium caused by bacteria. Untreated it eventually leads to the degradation of gingival tissue and jaw bones, in the worst case even tooth loss.
Periodontal disease does not only affect the mouth region but can also cause damage to the entire organism. For example, it increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases or in case of pregnancy, the risk of preterm birth.
Good oral hygiene, regular dental check-ups and the treatment of periodontitis with professional plaque removal can slow down the progression of the periodontal disease or even prevent it.
