Over a half of the entire human population suffer from periodontitis. It is one of the most common causes for the loss of teeth.
Periodontitis (often called by patients “parodontosis”) is a disease in the course of which the tissues surrounding a tooth, i.e. gums, periodontal ligament (attaching a tooth to the bone), external coating of the dental root: cementum and a jaw bone, are inflamed. It was proven long ago that the major causes for this disease are a hereditary inclination and poor oral hygiene. Therefore, it is very important to learn to clean teeth properly and on a regular basis so that food particles do not build up, also undergo regular professional oral hygiene. Bleeding gums, loose teeth, bad breath, increased dental sensitivity are common symptoms of periodontitis.
