What is periodontology?
Periodontology is the prophylaxis and treatment of the tissues around the tooth (gum, bone). In most cases, patients are referred to the doctor by observing the following symptoms: teeth gums’ pockets; Gingival bleeding; Toothache; bad breath and unpleasant taste in the mouth. These symptoms may indicate the most common periodontal disease, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis – an inflammation of the gums that can not reach the bone and can develop into a periodontal disease. Signs of gingivitis – reddened, swollen and bleeding gums.

First of all, a periodontal study is required:
