Periodontology

Periodontology deals with the study of the periodontium (the tissues surrounding the tooth) and with the study of the treatment of the diseases related to it: gingivitis, periodontitis and gingival recessions.
Special attention is given to patients suffering from these diseases by tight regular controls, specific therapies and sessions of professional oral hygiene.

During these sessions are performed periodontal probing (to assess the severity of the disease), radiograph and laboratory exams (to search for pathogenic bacteria). Symptoms of periodontal disease are: gums bleeding, tooth mobility, and in some cases pain, suppuration and odor. Not treating these diseases can lead a progressive loss of teeth and impact the overall health of the patient.
A growing body of scientific evidence proves the existence of a strong association with severe diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular problems, and lung diseases.
