What is periodontal disease?

Periodontics is the area of Dentistry that is responsible for the study, prevention and treatment of pathologies that affect the tissues that protect, surround and support the teeth: gums, alveolar bone, periodontal ligament and root cementum.

Periodontal lesions are caused by the accumulation of bacteria causing alterations in the periodontal area, these if not properly treated causing conditions that gradually progress causing tooth loss and opening severe diseases for our body.

Periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease is a chronic pathology, which encompasses outbreaks with minimal symptoms and can lead to the loss of support for the teeth, that is, to the destruction of the gums and the bone that support the teeth.

The best recommendation to prevent this type of disease in general is a frequent visit to the dentist, to check the correct formation of the dental pieces, hygiene and dental health and of the gums themselves.

Se utilizan radiografías como estudios complementarios para realizar un adecuado diagnóstico de la enfermedad periodontal.

The two types of periodontal diseases


This is the initial phase of periodontal disease, which is caused by the accumulation of bacterial plaque. Plaque is made up of bacteria and debris that sticks to teeth. If it is not removed correctly, it turns into tartar, which irritates and inflames the gums. The most frequent symptoms are reddening of the area and bleeding gums. Gingivitis is a reversible condition, but if it is not treated properly, it could progress and become periodontitis.


It is the phase resulting from Gingivitis, a serious and irreversible periodontal disease, which affects between 15% and 20% of adults between the ages of 35 and 44, according to the World Health Organization. 

This pathology, unlike gingivitis, is characterized by the structural loss of the attachment apparatus. Periodontitis is the main reason for tooth loss in adults. This disorder is not common in children, but its presence increases during adolescence.

Genetic predisposition

Genetic disposition also play a role in susceptibility to periodontitis diseases, the loss of dental pieces is higher if there is smoking.

Certain habits can be a risk factor for periodontal health due to the consumption of inappropriate foods, the consumption of alcohol and other substances.
