Periodontics is the dental specialty focusing exclusively on the inflammatory disease that destroys the gums and other supporting structures around the teeth.
Gum disease is the general name of inflammatory diseases affecting the teeth and surrounding tissues, which develop due to the plaque bacteria that grows and accumulates on teeth and gums due to poor maintenance of teeth and gums.
Since adults usually do not feel any pain, 70% of tooth loss in our age is due to gum disease.
The first visible and most important symptom of gum disease is gum bleeding. If your gums are bleeding although a healthy gum does not bleed, there may be a risk of infection in your gum.
