Periodontitis in a nutshell
Periodontitis is a serious gum disease, a very acute form of gingivitis, for example.
In its most aggressive form, it can lead to the destruction of mandibular bone tissue.
It is mainly due to poor dental hygiene, which leads to the formation of tartar under the gums.
Periodontology is the dental discipline dedicated to the tissues that support teeth, such as the gums and alveolar bone.
Periodontitis is treated by a periodontist or specialized dental hygienist with treatments such as dental cleaning and subgingival scaling.
