Periodontology is the specialty of dentistry that studies supporting structures of teeth, soft periodontal tissue diseases (ligaments and gingiva) and hard periodontal tissue diseases (teeth cement and alveolar bone) as well as conditions that affect them.
If you notice any tooth or gum disease symptoms schedule an appointment in Valdent Dental Clinic which is specialised in periodontal disease treatment.
The greatest cause of periodontal disease is inadequate oral hygiene, as well as poor immune system, genetics, stress and smoking habits. Bacteria, mucus and other particles constantly form a sticky, colorless layer on the teeth which then transform to plaque and cause damage of bone structure. The initial treatment of the infected area is plaque removal.
